If you are into the coding part of game development I can't recommend this book enough:
If you like game design, mechanics you could try some channels:
The Game Maker Toolkit
It goes mostly about how to convey the feeling of the game to the player
Although it is focused on open source tools and engines like Godot, there's a lot a valuable material there about art and programming.
This one i think is great, but he talks a lot about unity and is mostly focused on that. Lots of valuable content there too.
I believe Extra Credits has some old game development playlists
THOSE ARE SOME GOOD RESOURCES YOU HAVE THERE.
Thanks a lot! I'm sure to reach for your help if ever I got stuck. ^
The browser and canvas-api are already a pretty good framework for game-dev. If you‘re more about learning then I‘d suggest going without a library first. Those libraries always come with a huge overhead. If you want to do a puzzle game for example, chances are that you don‘t need all the webgl and performance-tweaks. Plus you can transfer the knowledge more easily to other languages and frameworks like Löve2D or Pico8.
If you‘re more about shipping, by all means use Phaser or Unity or Construct3.
OHHH. Thanks for the suggestion! In light of that, I'll try the game development tutorial of MDN on making a 2D Breakout game!
I forgot, if you want to focus on pure game-design, without having to mind the code, you should try store.steampowered.com/app/929860/... from Google.
PhaserJS is a good choice if you're already a web developer, start by learning fundamentals and sharp your skills in GameDev with it. You still can move to Unity or whatever later if needed.
I also gave to following advice to another web developer who wanted to learn game development: dev.to/arnaudmorisset/comment/9naa
Thanks for the advice! I really appreciate it a lot! ^
I'll start practicing coding on PhaserJS.
And that is a great article you wrote there. I'm looking forward to more well written posts from you in the future! :)
I have to admit that I am not that experienced in game development with web technologies but you might want to have a look at three.js as well if you have a 3D game in mind (threejs.org/).
Hope I could help you a bit. :)
It's not just by a bit, it makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE.
You're welcome! :)
Youtube channels can help you!!!
Unity 2 Player Game Tutorial #1 - Setting Up The Game
This tutorial is amazing, I've just watched and learned a lot of stufs.
Just learn game dev with the leaguage you know, search for frameworks to do it with what you know and let's go!!
This article explan it very well.
OHHHHHHH I'll try that video on the weekends! Thanks! Do you have any other recommended channels? I'd love to check it out. ^
