I'm trying to make a simple 2d game. Flash is simple, but not for making games. Can you recomend some engines or toolkit (free and not free) for Windows. Zarko

Toolkits? Like graphic libraries? In that case, my personal favorite is SDL, mainly cause thats the only one my current programming knowledge allow me to use. :P

Making a game is a lot more than just "Okay, I want it to be 2D."

You need to organize yourself.

1. What do you want the game to be about? See if you can sum up the game in three to five sentences.

2. What platform do you want to target? In your case, it's probably the PC.

3. What tools will you use? OpenGL? A popular opensource graphics library. DirectX? A little more complicated to learn, but in the end more beneficial*. SDL? Popular for cross-platform developers.

It's all a matter of taste really. If you don't know your basic hammer and nails (c, c++, Java, BASIC), don't try to use the skillsaw and anglefinder (OpenGL, DirectX, SDL, etc) to build your house (game).

Do you get what I'm saying? What all do you know?
