  • Game Development Issue

    Assalamoalaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

    I am new to this website. I have a question. Plz tell me the answer if anyone of u know this.
    Is game development(mobile games or pc games) allowed in Islam? I asked this question to many people but still i am confused. I know in Islam drawing picture of living things is not allowed. Music is also inappropriate. But what if I create games using non living things(like aeroplanes, cars etc) and sound effects(not music)? Can I use stick figures or robots instead of human models? Can i develop games like "Need for Speed"? Can i create human like figures without any facial parts(like eyes, nose, etc)?

    Its related to my career. Thanks in advance. Sorry for my poor English and sorry if i said anything wrong.
    ALLAH knows the best.

        about drawing or 3d sculpting , well the punishment context of the hadiths are all about the creator of drawing etc not the users
        and by the time of the Prophet, ummah were permissible to give doll for their kids, and to use gold coin with jesus or heracles face on it since they were only seek the benefit of it....
        in other word there is no sanctions for Users who seek benefit of some drawing or sclupting created by somebody else, so if somebody else making the drawing or 3d models for you and then you Program it for your software development than - IMO - it's fine.

          Are you modelling for the game or are you programming for it?

            It's Without Player Face Or Any Human Appearance. It's First Person View With Great Game Play.
            Best of All It's Without Any Blood Shed Or Other Weird Stuff. You Should Seek It Out And Try To Make Something Like It?

                        Thank you for replying. The link was of great help. But games always contain animation. I think i'm not allowed to do this.

                          To create that game(Portal) someone must have created a 3d figure of a person who used to hold the gun(using tools like maya or blender) and then programmers make it move. I am telling u this coz i am trying to get a job in a gaming company. And being a programmer i have to move some figure or texture created by others. So the game still contains picture(model) of a living being.
                          But anyways i understand what u want to say and yes thanks for your help.
