Other programming language suggestions

  • I've mastered the construct 2 event system (I literally have over 10,000 hours experience) and I'm looking into learning other languages. Does anyone have any suggestions? I wanted to get into using Unity or Unreal engine 4. Would C# be a good place to start? Thanks!

  • GameMaker or Unity3D would probably be a good step. I say GameMaker because GML is slightly more forgiving than C#. I haven't had much experience with UE4, though I hear its Blueprints system is all visual scripting if you're more interested in continuing that path... otherwise, you might need to dip your feet into some C++, and that's really stepping up the difficulty there.

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

    Cool, I had seen a video of UE4 and the blueprints system, but I didn't know it went to that extent of useability! The games I want to make with it are fairly simple in mechanics but complex visually, so I believe it would be a great engine to try! I have experience with UDK from college where we had to build levels for our level design classes so the transition shouldn't be too hard I'm thinking.

    I appreciate your advice!

  • No, UE4 is pretty similar to UDK. It kept the same way of working. The changes were mostly with the add-on of the blueprints.

    Blueprints are excellent for making small projects but fairly more complex ones would require actual code for better optimization.

    I personally think Game Maker is not a good solution if you really wanna learn programming since the language its too forgiving comparatively to C++

    A good choice can be the use of libraries such as SFML if you really wanna learn the basics. Obviously making a game would be much more difficult but its a great learning process.
