Hi, My name is Liam I am a final year software engineering student. I am currently working on a game for coursework for this semester and I have a few questions that I am wondering if someone could answer. I am making a 2D side scroller game which I am needing help on choosing the correct engine for. I am looking for an engine which will allow me to make scenes similar to "Braid". I have the artists but I don't know if i could use a 3D engine or 2D engine. I am wondering this due to there seems to have layers which move at different speeds and the light seems to change. How is this achieved? At the moment I am thinking about using a 3D and just texturing a flat model with the 2d image as textures (quads). Thanks for your time Liam
