    Every player has been stuck with an idea of developing its own game at least once. Let me introduce you to what is needed from your side. Once you capped some patience and willingness to create something new, be sure to install Microsoft Visual Studio.

    Step 1: Install an app in order to Develop a Game

    First things first, you should install Microsoft Visual Studio, which is one of the most convenient integrated development environments that can be used for beginners. For your first steps with app development, remember that this application can also be used for  development of web services, standalone applications, and mobile tools.

    I would recommend heading directly to the website of Visual Studio, which has direct download links for either Windows or macOS. You should choose the Community version of Visual Studio.

    Once you have successfully installed Visual Studio, you should also be ready to encounter the basics of C#. This programming language is definitely complex, yet if you heard about Kerbal Space Program, a game that was entirely developed with exclusive use of C#, you would know that this general-purpose language can easily be called multifunctional one. If you’re looking for examples of widely used apps developed on C# (also known as C Sharp), just take a look at the following list:

    *         Visual Studio

    *         Paint.NET

    *         Open Dental

    *         Beagle

    *         HandBrake

    Step 2: Create a project in Visual Studio

    Now, I’ll show you how to create a project and further develop it within functionality of Visual Studio. First off, once opening an application, head to File and click on a New Project tab.

    A pop-up menu will appeal with lots of tools and tabs to open. There, you’ll have to choose Windows Forms Application on Visual C#, which will work on the basis of .NET framework 4.5.2.

    Be sure to put a name to your first project, followed by opening its first Form.

    I know, that might be a bit confusing to start a new project straight away. Believe me, you’re already on your track towards creating a full-scale game on your own.

    Step 3: Add the code of the Game to the Visual Studio

    What if I tell you that you can create your own game without a proficient use of C#? Community of developers often operate with open-source projects. These open-source libraries allow taking a look at one’s C# code, eventually making specific changes to customize  y

     For your comfort, I am also inserting code right below for you to add it to a new project straight away:

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.ComponentModel;
    using System. Data;
    using System.Drawing;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Threading.Tasks;
    using System.Windows.Forms;
    namespace SlotMachine
        public partial class Form1 : Form
            public Form1()
         public static long credits = 100;
         public static long total = 0;
         public static int bet = 5;
         public static int p1;
         public static int p2;
         public static int p3;
         private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
             pictureBox1.Image = Image.FromFile("2.png");
            pictureBox2.Image = Image.FromFile("3.png");
