I have looked at Unity and Unreal, if I wanted to make something commercial I would pick one of those.. I am not doing that, to put it in perspective I lucked out married a geek/gamer/gear head. My wife and I are going to restore a 1967 Chevy impala as a couple's project over a few years. She has her personal projects, gamedev is going to be mine, and she is going to help.

I have been looking at 3d engines, brought it down to 2, Ogre and Irrlicht. Leaning towards ogre, cleaner code base more active community even though I have a lot more experience with irrlicht. Decisions.

To clarify in the process of making my rpg I will have side projects, 3d games quick 2d games etc

Thank you jbadams, I am looking into making retro arcade type of games strictly 2d.  I am interested in making extremely in depth 2d rpg, targeting systems Windows, Linux and Mac Osx.  This is just for fun and not commercial purposes and I am willing to invest years into it. I am currently evaluating SFML and the Thor extensions because  I have been programming in c++ for the last 10 years and that library is cross platform. I have used SDL in the past as well  so I will evaluate that as well.

 

 

I love all aspects of game dev,  designing, character creation, programming, 2d art, music and  sound. I think it will be fun to do all the programming and asset creation myself. Unlike traditional rpg's I a will be basing mine on African mythologies, Story telling, music and art. It is going to be fun.
