Game design / How do I begin???
« on: October 05, 2006, 03:14:17 PM »
Hi!!
First of all, lots of congrats for making this thrilling tool reality!!I think that for almost everyone in the adventure community, making his/her own game is a dream come true!

Well, I'm actually in a dilemma about how to begin creating a game. I've thought of a story, I've sketched some characters, but I can't decide...should I try 2.5D or  plain 2D???????? ???
The thing is, that although I believe I'm pretty good at sketching, I just know the basic stuff about both 3ds max and Paint Shop pro(I don't own Photoshop unfortunately). Which means, it will take quite some time for me to both learn more about either of them...but which one is more worthy trying????

Personally, I think that I prefer 2D characters drawn by me, because they will look exactly like I want them to look. But I don't think that 2D BGs are as beautiful as pre-rendered ones. Here is where I need some information...
With paintshop, will I be able to add complex texture on my BGs? Also, what about light and shadows? Or animated scenes??? Can I add some flashing lights with sprites? And what is the max size or the max number of the sprites I can use in a scene??

What do you say? Without risking giving everything up, which method is better: 2.5D or 2D?????

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!
