Default New idea for an android app/game. How realistic?

Im new to application development, but by profession I am an Animator. I work in 2D and 3D. I can create and design all of the assets for my idea, but I want to know how difficult/time consuming/costly it would be to code the game.

Lets say for example picking up sand (particles) with a bucket and pouring it elsewhere, or digging a hole with a spade and controlling the character to carry it elsewhere.

Any information will be much appreciated, also feel free to ask me questions if there are any parts that you haven't understood.

Thank you in advance.

I think creating a game wouldn't be so expensive, actually I don't know if it would cost you anything. Especially considering your profession... On the other hand I am not a developer, I am just saying what I read. There are a lot of tutorials on the web. I also have a large amounts of ideas for rpg games and horror fps game, but I have no idea how to make it, nor do I have time to do it.

I would be willing to outsource the programmers/coders, but I was mainly wondering how code and graphics/animations are incorporated together.

I think you can browse through the forum. There are a lot of threads where authors presents their games. You cat find something a bit similar to your ideas and ask author how difficult it was to devellop this. Probably somebody of them could agree to make an application together with you!

Default Unity3D

Hi, it is difficult to answer your question in a general manner, it really depends what you want to achieve and what the skills of the developer you'll contract are...doubt anybody will provide you with any specific answer unless you have more details about your project.

Given the background in 2D/3D, you might find interesting that there are several toolkits that can help you in your project and that you eventually might find familiar, and be able to create bulk of the project on your own and only use mobile developer for the actual game logic.

One such toolkit, that is very popular (and I have experience using it - contact me if you want to discuss this further) is Unity3D, it is virtually a 3D editor (if you have experience with tools such as Maya, you'll feel right at home) and at the same time, it is a game engine. Pretty much all you've mentioned should be doable by yourself, it is fairly straightforward for the beginners.

Hope this helps.
