Welcome to my blog about game development. Have you heard anything about random number generators before? Those are the tools because of which you often feel so salty after losing a game that is based on a cycle of random generation.
But what if we make the actual use of this technology to develop our own online games? If you have always wanted to try something new, it might be just the right idea to start with this game development idea. Check it out!
How to develop games with Random Number Generator
First things first, it might be an excellent decision to start with basics and shed light on the essentials of random number generators (RNGs) and their capacities. For those interested in how RNGs work, let’s start with essentials that you need to know before creating your own online game.
Any RNG is a number or a sequence of numbers that cannot be anyhow predicted, except for a random chance. The results of any RNG tool are actually unpredictable since some of those perks can incorporate thousands of millions of numbers of images, eventually making any predictions utterly unusable.
Any RNG works as a system, which incorporates a range of variables required for its operational capacities. In other words, any generator has to be built on either code or a function that works with certain pieces of data, such as numbers, figures, tables, images, whatsoever. That means that RNG cannot work by itself since it requires the production of unpredictable results based on the already included pieces of information.
It might be shocking for you to hear such things from me, but any RNG is needed for game development since it would be impossible to code and design each specific consequence based on millions of variables.
In the gaming industry, RNG tools are mostly used for generating loot, game events, critical hit chances, and a wide range of other gameplay-related situations. That’s why all game developers, regardless of a scale of their project, turn to RNG tools sooner or later to automatize specific areas of a game for the overall game production to be more convenient regarding the development time.
Except for games, RNGs are widely deployed in statistical sampling, gambling, simulations, and cryptography. I also have my own explanation of where these generators might be used. From what I learned over the last years, RNG tools are in demand in spheres where unpredictable consequences are permissible in specific contextualized situations.
Let’s move on with getting to know about the ways of creating your own games with RNG tools!
Popular Platforms for Creating your own Games with Random Number Generator
As you might be aware already, RNG tools can be used in a wide range of situations and scenarios. As an industry standard, the most popular tools, except for programming languages, are:
● Construct 3
● Trusted RNG
The first one, which is Construct.net (Construct 3) is a modern and versatile game development tool that operates on the basis of a block-based approach. No programming languages are required for using it, yet its features allow deploying RNG elements within the game design. The latter aspect has allowed Construct 3 to shine bright in comparison with other game development tools that failed to deliver such a function. An honorable notion is that Construct 3 can be used for both mobile and desktop gameplay, eventually making it a decent choice for cross-platform development that supports third-party extensions.
I must say that Random.org is an infamous website that solved millions of disputes, which is more than by using any modern diplomatic strategy. This website allows generating thousands of types of random sequences, ranging from numbers to games, statistics, and passwords. Such versatility was used nearly a decade ago to develop full-scale projects...Read more »
