What is Gdevelop
GDevelop makes it very easy to jump into simple 2D game developing. The quick drag and drop tools for the game space and the easy to follow coding language made it much less intimidating to try and create something! The coding can also be changed from the easy to read written-out style to a more complex coding language for those who want to learn more!
GDevelop has a variety of templates you can use, from platforming games to RPGs to shooters and more. While it may seem overwhelming to create your own game, GDevelop breaks down the coding into simple commands that teach the basics of coding and making the process approachable and fun. Also, the sprite designer makes it easy to draw quick characters and environmental items!
Although it is being developed at a good speed, and with good support from the open source community, it still needs a bit of more of tutorials and documentation to make things work exactly how it should. It’s surprising the software itself doesn’t have more of a guide, but with the help of this article it should be easy to find videos that will help you.
Even so the limitations, the qualities of the engine and the fact of being open source and free, makes it a very good alternative to develop 2D games.
