Hello. You are right, I forgot to tell the tag. I think a shorter tag like "arcade art challenge" would be better.

And yes, there will be submissions from time to time especially after game jams, that's the idea. It is a "never-ending" art challenge. ;-)

Hello, guys! By the way, are some of you interested by my "Arcade Art Challenge"?

I think it was unnoticed. You can take your time and add your art when you want : there is no time limit.

See here for the description of the challenge.

And here to see my submission.

Excellent. I have played 10 of these games from the demake jam.

My favorite are : Bio Evil 4, Pixel Eye, and Phantom Limbs.

I hope there will be other demake jams.

Final Fantasy 7, or Metal Gear Solid with Megadrive graphics? :-)

Great jam, I will try some of the games.

@theidiotmachine :

I found Love2D when I was looking for a game engine, but I forgot about it.

Thanks for reminding me about this one, it really seems interesting.


@withthelove :

Thanks, but it will take some time.

I have to :

- know which type of game(s) I would like to do

- know which language to learn

- according to all this, decide which engine to use

- start to learn both the engine and the language (for example, Lua / Love2D)

- make my first game

Furthermore, I have a project to finish before I really get into this.

I am not sure I will be ready for the next jam.

But next time I participate in a jam, I will make a more elaborate game, I guarantee that.

@withthelove Really? Well, that is a bit reassuring. I was thinking learning to use a game engine was harder than this.

Anyway, I will create a new topic about game engines when I start using one of them.

Thanks everybody.

Hello, thank you for your replies, and sorry for my (very) late reply.

So, according to your advices, and to my own research, the game engines which I could use for future projects are :

Godot, Unreal, Game Maker, RPGBoss.

I also noticed that Android has a lot of game maker apps : see here for a list.

I hope I will have enough time to learn using some of them, and that it won't be too hard.

If yes, I would be able to make more elaborate games for jams.

Hello everybody, thanks for these interesting advices.

I have a question about game engines. 

Actually, I programmed my game Phoenix Hunt in C language with the SDL library.

It is OK in order to program such a simple game, but I think I need to learn using a game engine for my future games.

Which game engines do you use in order to program your games?

I don't know a lot about game engines, I am searching for an open source and simple to use engine in order to make 2D games of different types : RPGs, platformers...

Which one would you recommend me?

Thanks in advance for your answers.
