      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.

Hello guys, How're you doing? I'm doing really well !

I know this is a very asked question, but for a generalist Indie Game Developer, what is the best game engine or library?

Languages I know a bit:
C++, Python, Java (Just a little)
And I'm happy to learn Lua.


I'd prefer something which keeps me away from Java... But once I have no choice, I have seen some libgdx videos, and I just think that its a bit disorganized and confuse (Ok sorry Java'ers, but I really think the whole Java thing is VERY DISORGANIZED AND CONFUSE) I prefer a simple and organized C++ code ( haha, nice one BIG POSER! ).

So guys don't kill me by posting such as a rumor like this, I also don't know the whole thing, I'm just preventing... )

That's It! I need your help!

TIA. _w4r.

Best depends on you, depends on your team, depends on your game.


There are lots of engines and tools, see the forum FAQ for some of the more popular cross-platform selections.


I have heard about Unity's possible sell

Yes, that is fairly old news. There was a write-up last month about it available here.


Basically one of the co-founders left last year and was talking openly about selling his portion of the ownership shares, and so far (20 months later and counting) he hasn't sold them.  After he talked of selling, the other share-holders within the company also started discussion about potentially selling their shares, selling the company to another in a buyout, going public, and other options.  


Based on media reports they have already turned down multiple buyout attempts, two were publicly discussed below $1B. Several people put the valuation around $1.5B or $2B. At their current value they are overdue for some kind of transformation.

I know it may be a bit late to answer , but if you know python and you are confortable with that, check out kivy. It`s a great library + for games you can also use Kivent wich complements kivy when it comes to advanced game features. I`ve made a game with kivy and release on google play :https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.test.nemos_escape

I've answered this question in one of my recent youtube videos. Check out my channel in my description and you should find the video on my channel. 


I referred you there because i don't want to retype my answer over and over. Its more efficient if you just watch the video. :-)

You could of course have at least given a link to the specific video. Or given the name of the video.


edit: Well it was easy to find.


I'm sorry but that video was not useful at all. Jut you repeating yourself over and over giving really obvious advice when what is needed by most people is some concrete comparisons.
