Are you a beginner to game programming or programming in general? If just to game programming, what language and API do you use?

I don't think XCode is available freely yet, is it??

In the meantime, Project Builder is great value (it's free!). The only problem is that it is incredibly slow, something XCode will hopefully rectify. Oh, and you lose a cross platform solution out of the box.

If you are on Mac OS 8 or 9, you could grab a copy of Apple's Macintosh Programmer's Workshop

I agree, back when I was in OS 9 I tried it, and then I quickly went back to METAL.
