I'm looking into a career of game design and programming, but I'm not able to find anything helpful for my platform, Visual C++. I've looked all over the internet and even these forums, but I haven't been able to find what I'm looking for. Everything that I've found so far that I've thought could be helpful was for another language or program.
Does anybody have any suggestions at all for where I should go? Just to be clear, I'm looking for C++ and Directx tutorials if any can be found. If I can just start with 2D game creation and work my way up from there, I might have a shot at my career of choice.
