New programs to make videogames in 2D?


#1

Greetings people.

I’m wondering if anybody knows programs to make videogames in 2D very easy to work with, for no programers.

And it will be perfect to work in Windows OS to put it on a gameshell when I finish.

Thanks for the info!

Really depends on what you want to do, and how much you are ready to learn a bit of programming.

There is no solution that easily target the game shell, but there are a couple of hints:

For RPGs you can have a look at RPGMaker: https://www.humblebundle.com/store/search?sort=bestselling&search=RPGMaker
For other type of 2D games, you can look at tools like

Clickteam Fusion: https://www.humblebundle.com/store/clickteam-fusion-25
or Game Maker Studio: https://www.humblebundle.com/store/gamemaker-studio-2-desktop

If you are willing to learn a bit of programming language, python would probably be a good choice for a start, and there are some interesting books like these one:

You are welcome, don’t hesitate to ask question!

You might also consider App Game Kit: https://www.appgamekit.com/ which is pretty straightforward.
One thing to keep in mind is that for the Gameshell, you need it to produce ARM compatible files (RPG maker seems to make that pretty complicated)

Not going to make a full discussion about it, but RPGMaker 2000 project should be usable on teh GameShell with not a lot of work.

If I get mine one day I will make an howto about it.
