Hello everyone. Hope you've been more active than I've been, as I've only just tried starting.
I've been using Game Maker Studio 2 for my stuff so far, mostly out of experience with it and it's predecessors. The problem is that I can't export to Mac or Linux with it; that'd require hooking up machines running those OSes and I don't have the everything for that. Web export is also not an option as that's $150. I've been distributing the source for my games as sort of a solution, but it's not elegant at all.
So it may be time to look for some other game thing, even though I could make the game itself quite readily with GMS2.
What I'm looking to make will mostly be dragging, clicking and holding down stuff with the mouse so it's not complicated but a lot of stuff is meant to happen graphically. The things most closely fitting seem to be LÖVE and Renpy. I have no experience with the former and it seems a bit like I'd have to do everything myself, while the latter seems not intended for single-screen things that don't go anywhere. I think I'd have to bend it quite a bit to make it do what I want.
So, I'm not really sure what to use, but I'll need to draw stuff first so that buys me a little time. I could go and do the source thing again but that doesn't feel like it's in the spirit of things. Any thoughts?
