Hi all,
I just finished my scjp 5.0 and am interested in making a simple java game. What all things you need to know to start with?

Depends what kind of game, and where you want it to run. On a phone? On the web? Desktop app? 3D shooter? Arcade? Text adventure?

Obviously there are a lot of choices to be made!

Hi Ernest,
thanks for replying. I wanna start with a simple 2D game like "space invaders" as a Desktop App. And then move onto a 3d shooter probably.

Nad,

I would recommend going over these tutorials: Coke and Code.

Good luck to you!

On the souceforge or other opensouce websites, you could find many java game sources code, which may be helpful.
