Which Game Making Tool Is Right for You?
Game development is possibly one of the more difficult hobbies to get into, mainly due to how huge and daunting it can seem. Not only do aspiring indie game developers have to know how to code, but there’s also the art, the writing, the design, the distribution and so much more that goes into making a game work. Luckily, there’s a vast amount of game-making tools and open-source engines out there that help the process of actually making a video game feel much less overwhelming.
Some of the more popular choices include RPG Maker, GameMaker Studio, Unity and Source Engine. RPG Maker and GameMaker Studio are both tools built around engines that simplify the game-making process, while Source and Unity are easy-to-use free engines that many developers have released tutorials for, though they require more coding knowledge than the others. For those looking to get into making indie games, which one of these tools is best to start with?
