      It is a combination of fundamental RPG elements and challenging, session-based MOBA elements. Having features such as creating your unique build, customizing your outfit and preparing synergic team compositions with friends, players can brave dangerous adventures or merciless arena fights against deadly creatures and skilled players alike.

      This time with no grinding and no pay to win features.

      We're still looking for:

      Hi everyone! I'm currently working on a series of books about 2D Shader Development.

      The idea is to synthesize a bunch of techniques that are specifically useful for 2D, even if they work on 3D as well.

      I released the first book last week. It's 4.99 on Amazon or free on the series website, https://www.2dshaders.com

      This is an independent initiative, I don't work for any publisher whatsoever. The contents of the books are the result of a 4-year span where I started teaching this in Argentina and USA, always making the workshop better. Now I'm expanding it to make more sense in book form.

      I'd love to hear your opinions on the idea and if you get the book let me know what you think.

      By the way, the examples are in Unity, but the concepts from the book should be easily transferable to any graphics api/engine.

      Hope you like it!

      While looking out for that pesky Terrator, our little alien is doing a bit of relaxed mining down on the new gas planet "Lelantos" this weekend....

      I have a native iOS game (objective c, XCode build) which I am considering to port to other platforms.
      Core gameplay is based on solely on geographical maps, and custom drawing over maps. It also has Core Data. This part is complete in development.
      What is not done yet is: monetization, gamification (leaderboards, challenges) and multiplayer functionality.
      As I think more about it, I am tempted to think if this is the right time to move to a cross platform tool such as Unity. But before dedicating time to port my 5 years side-project effort in Objective C, I really want to know if its worth it.
      - Does Unity support such plugins / assets that will fulfill all my above requirements?
      - Unity Personal seems to have only 20 concurrent users - is it too costly scaling if I decide for extending to web and android platforms?
      - What is the general workflow involved in publishing to iOS, Android, PC, and web platforms while using Unity? I mean to ask about various points of signing stuff, paying fees and getting certified.
      - How long will it really take to port my entire Objective C project into Unity? I am somewhat familiar with C# but I am finding it hard fidgeting with Unity IDE as lot of things are focused around FPS and 3D while my game is still 2d - not much action involved. I seem bit overwhelmed by the list of features I see there. All in all, I do not want to lose my momentum while still making sure its portable to everywhere.
      - Any assets I could use (for free to try basis in debug) that are relevant for my game?
      - Last but not the least, are there any costs that I need to be paying upfront to Unity, for using it (apart from their monthly subscription model)? I don't understand their costing for multiplayer in conjunction with their subscription fees - if someone could kindly elaborate.
      Thanks in advance for your time reading a newbie

      me and few friends are developing simple city building game with unity for a school project, think something like Banished but much simpler. I was tasked to create the path-finding for the game so I mostly followed this tutorial series up to episode 5. Then we created simple working system for cutting trees. The problem is that the path-finding is working like 90% of the time, then it get stuck randomly then there's clearly a way to the objective (tree). I tried looking for some pattern when it happens but can't find anything. So basically I need any tips for how I should approach this problem.
      Use this image to visualize the problem.

Can some nice people here maybe help and give some link to tutorials focused on game programming in making a singleplayer RPG?

It can contain tutorials on programming too but I want mostly on how to design the game technically in code with game loop, interface, classes, character creation, combat, quests, items, world creation(houses, roads etc), etc etc.

I am planning on using unity engine and c#. It will be a 3D game isometric game (oldschool style) and probably zone based as in when you walk into the edge of screen you'll enter a new zone.. but zones are somewhat big too so screen will follow character movement within the zones.
The tutorial doesn't have to fit the above description but it's a bonus of course.

I am medium skilled at programming in c++, just rusty and never made a game before just exercises mostly in console.

I noticed this on the App Hub msdn site that you may be interested in checking. Honestly I'm not far enough into XNA to be able to figure out everything that it's doing but it is a full, if short, RPG written in C#.

It is unlikely you will find anything. I have never heard of such a thing as making a tutorial on how to make an RPG, especially from the ground up, and in terms of code.
I waited a while before replying to see if anyone knew better than myself, but now I feel fairly confident in saying that what you seek simply does not exist, mainly because logic dictates that it shouldn’t exist.

#1: You want something that explains class hierarchies. This is entirely subjective and there is no single right way to go about it. This kind of thing is usually avoided in tutorials unless there is a clear and full-spectrum solution that would work on virtually all RPG’s. If the tutorial is about how to make an RPG, then it is expected that the same ideas could be applied to more than just the RPG being made in the tutorial. But RPG’s, and all games for that matter, vary so much that a tutorial explaining this to the level required to be that flexible would simply be impractical.
#2: Anyone who gets an idea to write a tutorial on how to make an RPG will have the mindset of a designer. The tutorial will cover aspects of design and design only. No one thinks, “I will make an RPG tutorial. I will show them how to code it.” No, it is about the idea behind the story, not the code.
#3: Anyone willing to make a tutorial about how to code an RPG will instead correctly make a distinction between a tutorial on how to code (in general) and how to make an RPG (from a design standpoint). A tutorial on how to code in general will be useful to many. A tutorial on how to make a moving RPG storyline will be useful to many.
A tutorial on how to code just an RPG? No sane person would waste so much time on such a specialized topic.

I would suggest simply forgetting this subject. Learn how to code using tutorials that are meant to teach coding. Think about making an RPG when you have the skills necessary to do it and have had enough false starts to know what kinds of things to avoid. Experience can’t be taught, only learned. So start learning it.
