    Default Thinking of making a game

    me and my brother are thinking of making a sandbox game, pixelated 2d game, can someone give us tips on how to start off?

    i've started designing some blocks and character models

    It would be a great honor if Seth or Hamumu would give some tips

    btw it won't be an online game

    I wish you the best of luck with your game!

    The best advice I could give would be to add something unique to it, which makes people want to keep playing. I have been working on a game too (Very slow progress). And I understand it takes quite a bit of work, which I'm sure you and your brother can definitely handle!

    I look forward to seeing your future progress.
    Do you give as much energy to your dreams as you do to your fears?

    Thanks, i've been stalking the forums, seeing what people want to be added in gt and those give me new ideas for new features. I'm not going to copy the ideas from here, i'll tweak them up a lil' bit and then see if they will be worth adding.

    2 best game making tools: Unity, gamemaker studio.

    Gamemaker is easy to use.
    i recommend gamemaker for you if you never coded before
    I use unity

    Don't be disappointed when your game doesn't turn out.

    What are you coding it in?


    And I think you should make your own game engine, find a good game library, and a language that you're competant in.

    Edit: Just realized you have no idea what language it's being coded in, so you probably know nothing of how it'll work.
