I looked into it and it all seems scary tbh lol. I do some pixelart and ive looked into C# slightly but was wondering if I should try learning java first? Plus the sounds and sfxs scare me the most. Any Tips?
I wanna get into rpgs and such. The languages I seen while looking into game design where c# java c++ python and things like gdscript but I do not know the benefits of things like gdscript so i've mainly been looking into the first 3
RPGs is a special category. You could look into RPG Maker, which will allow you to create (a certain type of) RPGs quickly. But it's not free, and I'm not sure how many useful skills you learn from that for use in other tools/engines.
Making a (serious, elaborate) RPG in Unity (or Monogame, etc.) is a ton of work. There are assets in the Unity asset store to get you started, but they're also not free (as far as I've seen). But if you want to create a simple, short experience (no elaborate inventory, quest, dialog, etc. systems) that should be doable without tools.
GDScript (Godot) seems very similar to Python, so you cannot go wrong learning that. Godot seems a good engine to start with too.
I would say: pick a tool (Unity, Godot, RPG Maker?), follow some tutorials and see how well it matches your skills and expectations. You can always switch...
I still a giant novice myself and just started to scraped the top of pixel art and such. I don't mind the idea of trying the game out with you but like i said am a giant newbie with little knowledge and was looking for tips and such to get into learning it. Defiantly not Jam ready yet.
its ok! you dont need to learn proggramming languages it uses visual scipting and has a built in piskel editor , c'mon i entered a game jam with the theme of crafting and i plannned on making a survival rpg game also i am a begginer to! and a 12 yrs old =)
I'am 25 and like i said a jam might be abit much for me rn I rather work on my pixel art skills for the time being. thanks for the offer tho
oh your good at arrt? if you can, can you make me a top-down character and a goblin?? i would credit to you and thanks!
good is putting it lightly am trying lol am green horn and can you get into what your looking for like size wise? design wise? idk if it be any good and such but am down to give it a shot
64 x 64 or 32 x 32 would be great and i think your art is gonna be amazing! make it survival-ish ok? ;)
by top down do u mean like birds eye view? am a bit lost and ill work on it in my free time and like what type of design like fantasy? med fantasy? If you could show some examples of what type you want would be helpful 2
thisthisthisand this i think survival will be ok just without swords or guns =)
ye, I've been dipping my feet in some Gdevelop just so I can see how light code works and been practicing my pixel art for like 2-3 hours a day
what would you recomend for learning c#? engines, code editor, any useful tools for it?
Specifically for game development I'ld recommend Unity Engine, it's easy to use and there's a whole bunch of guides, tutorials and documentation to help you get started. ( https://unity.com/ ) I prefer using the MonoDevelop IDE ( code editor ) while working with Unity, but it's possible to use ( and I think it has become the default editor in recent versions of Unity ) Visual Studio.
Visual Studio is a really great IDE, and free, it's far better than MonoDevelop in my opinion so I'ld recommend it first and foremost, even though I prefer MonoDev myself. :) If developing desktop applications I'ld certainly recommend VS, since it has built-in UI designer tools and include a whole lot more without the need to install a bazillion of add-ons.
Furthermore, I'ld really recommend reading some books about programing in C#- it'll help alot, going through a bunch of online tutorials targetting game development, and specifically development with a certain engine would probably work out allright- but it will likely take a longer time to learn it properly and to stand on your own two feet. To give two examples, click the links below. Pay your local library a visit to see if they have any books on the subject on the shelves! :)
