Anyone New, Interested or Experienced w/ Game Development?

Post #204776 Anyone New, Interested or Experienced w/ Game Development?

Hey guys, so after doing web development for the longest time, I've been poking my head into the world of game development trying out engines and different languages until I finally landed back on the first engine I tried, Unity. I just got done learning the basics of the Godot engine with its GDScript language, but I was not really a fan of using whitespace instead of brackets.

Anyways, I'm going to be relearning the unity engine from the beginning if anyone is interested in learning along, or even if you're already experienced drop me a message on discord, I would love to get a group together of some people from the community that share the same interest (game development).

Have you tried Aphelion Browser Based?

Unity is my "goto" if I need to knock something graphical up quick. I'm always happy to help if anyone needs it.

Unreal is also an excellent engine. Probably more well regarded than Unity. This is pretty good advice for new users but sadly I'm stuck with the "can't teach an old dog new tricks" problem. I've used Unity for so long I can just go to it and do what I need to get the job done without having to learn anything new. So what I'm basically saying is I'm lazerly bound to Unity. "Lazerly" is a word, right? XD

It most likely will be easier for some people to work with Unreal for more higher budget/graphically intensive projects and unreal also offers visual scripting which is pretty amazing for people just starting out, but with Unity 2019 around the corner offering their own take on visual scripting and making the 2D development workflow easier (which is what I will be primarily working with) it's definitely a great choice for beginners, especially with all the learning resources out there for it. It's a definite choice for me, just for the sheer fact that 2D development is becoming a huge focus for unity and to be honest, a year or two ago I would say the same thing about unity, but the idea of working on a 2D game in unreal is already giving me headaches.

Outside of Unity, the obvious choice would be GameMaker Studio 2 which has a better and easier development workflow for creating 2D games, but personally, I dread working with GML and the horrid UI of GameMaker and outside of that it's good to have the option of also being able to work with 3D without having to relearn another engine or splitting hairs just to make cool 2.5D effects.

If you're just starting out, especially if you're only planning on using 2D or basic 3D, then I'd highly recommend just learning OpenGL and/or DirectX without some kind of 3rd party engine. There are a tonne of tutorials online and you'll gain a valuable idea of how the graphics pipeline works.

Although old I'd still recommend NeHe "Legacy tutorials" to anyone. It's a little outdated, hence the name,  but will teach you step-by-step everything you need to get started.
