I am planning to start hte game dev. But my major question is what game engine?

Checking into different game engines.โ€‹

MetricPhaserUnityGamemaker Studio 2GodotUnreal Engine
Learning Difficulty672410
Mobile Platform399?8
Web Platform108883
Loading Speed62
Language Usefullness88217


This means how good are they at scaling up.

Out of the questionโ€‹

  • 3djs -> Too complex for your first game engine

Gamemaker Studio 2 - For first game engineโ€‹

There is a catch!

It is free to develop games, you have to pay for exporting it (Sharing to friends)


  • As an instructor I can buy and export the games for you and just send you the files or publish them for you
  • Of course I will not take any credits/profit form your game
Why GameMaker Studio 2
  • Easy to learn
  • Decent Scalability
  • Compatibility with all type of platforms: Web browsers, Mobile Applications,


Subscription Comparisonโ€‹

Phaser - For fast loading games (Totally Free)โ€‹

Why Phaser
  • Fast Loading

Phaser/Godot- Best for Chromebookโ€‹

Game Development on Chromebook with Godot

While the case for Phaser is that it just needs a linux terminal + a programming field and that should be enough since it just needs a browser for loading it.


Unity - Best for Serious Game Devโ€‹



  • Allows 3D/2D
  • Crossplatform Compatible
  • Reasonable Difficulty
  • Online Multiplayer


  • Loading Speed

Study Planโ€‹

ยท 2 min read

Idea: What if I run out of things to teach? I can teach multiple things that the students might be williing to learn.โ€‹

Reasoning Usually my "lecture" takes around 5 minutes. The rest of the class is left for students to work on the activity


  • Separate the lesson of 45 minutes in order to fit multiple lectures.
  • Separate the different lessons the further apart from each other so it's not a "lump" of information

What to learn?โ€‹


  • Python basics
  • UX Design
  • 3D Modeling and Printing.
  • Art for Videogames: Pixel Art + Animations
  • Mobile App Dev MIT App Inventor
  • Java
  • Game Development using GameStudio 2
  • Web Development (Front-end)
  • Crafts 101
  • Javascript
  • Ethics, Commuinication and Project Managament for engineers
  • Relational Databases

After the first programming Languageโ€‹


  • Needs a Windows/Mac Laptop
  • Have learn Python or Java first
  • Dungeon and Dragons + Python.
  • Python for boring stuff Automation
  • Python Advanced
  • Hardware and Robotics
  • Data Science & Artificial Intelligence
  • Hacking 101
  • Competitive Programming
  • Cracking your code Interview
  • Game Development using Unity (Fairly Hard)



  • Take at least 2 courses with me

  • 1 course must been either Java/Python

  • Machine Learning

  • Mobile App Development for IOS

    • Requires a Mac
  • Mobile App Development for Android Studio

  • Project 101 - You design your own programming project and work on it. (I recommend at least taking 2 classess with me before this.)

  • Backend Development + Databases or Full Stack Development

  • Advanced Front-end (RactJS)
