Hey, guys, how do you make a game and add it as a file?

For the game making part, you most likely need a couple of years in serious training, so I won't be bothered unless you do have.

For the file, that knowledge comes after your course. Or at least after you master basic programming.

You don't. I made a game within a day, the program made it easier, but the point still stands. You don't need years of programming to create a game. You can teach yourself most things within a few months from stuff on the internet, or do what I did and use an easy program to make a basic game.

Winmaster - Read this thread. The easiest one to use in my opinion is Stencyl. When you're done making the game, there should be something in the menu or somewhere on the program where it lets you save the file so you can add it to websites.

And yours wasn't accepted by AG.

Meaning, to create a good game for AG, it takes quite a fair time. Not a personal attack. Sorry.

My intention wasn't to submit to AG, it was to play around with a program. But that's besides the point.

Not that long. Several good games have been created with Stencyl, the same program I used. Just look here.

Sounds like it's not worth doing that at all, except testing the game and release it...

What do you mean, not worth playing around with the program? Well, how do you expect to learn? I'm not sure what you mean by the second half of your sentence.
