Gday gday, after messing around with a few 2d game makers (mainly construct 2 and Game maker studio), I decided to take the plunge and buy construct 2. Even though I don't know any programming and game maker seems to have more templates freely available, something about construct just seems more comfortable to work with.
I am predominantly a photoshop artist, but would like to see my images in motion. I am going to get stuck into the beginner tutorials and the forums which seem very helpful, and hopefully the games in my head will eventuate into something real.
I look forward to learning from you all, and if you have any suggestions on resources (behaviours and what not) and tutorials for platform games above and beyond the existing on the tutorial page, please let me know. I am hoping to eventually create something like Limbo (who isn't right!), but will start off with the art aspect and basic game mechanics.
