    The game industry is growing every year. And a lot of people decided to connect their work activities with the creation of games. Recently, entering the game industry market has become much easier, thanks to development tools and resources with game assets.

    Typically, a novice developer prefers to develop with the simplest 2D games written on tools such as Construct 2, Unity3d, Unreal Engine.

And sometimes even acquiring assets in a store serves as a big obstacle to the development of talent.
