      Hello!
      I am a game development student in my second year of a three year program and I would like to start building my portfolio. I was thinking of creating some games to show what I can do to potential employers since I wont have any work related experience when I graduate. But as I'm sure you all know there are tons of ways to approach developing/designing a game and I'm curious if anyone had any insight as to any "standards" that come with this? Is it okay to use game engines like Unity, Unreal, Game Maker etc? Or would it be better to make a game from scratch to better show case your skills? Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated!

      Hello,
      Me and a friend have been thinking of making a game, but the thing is that, we only have someone who only knows how to write and very VERY basic coding (Me) and another person who can make the music and know a bit more coding and know how to use Game Maker.
      We are thinking of making a top down Action RPG with some crafting elements, is it possible to make it with our limited abilities? obviously we are open to learn and improve, but, can we start and do something with what we already have?
