Which game engine?

Recommended Posts


im new to this forum and i want to ask about which engine i should choose.

I want to do a 2D round based game (like the flash game 'Sonny' & 'Sonny 2' and i understand the basics of python, C and C#. (Did in school and private, but never coded anything privatly)

The game engines im looking at are Unity, Godot or Gamemaker. What are the pros and cons of them? (And it should be free to use)

If you have any other suggestions feel free to share them.

I would suggest unity.  Don’t even consider game maker.  The free version can’t even create a simple platformer.  It can barely make pong.  It costs 30 dollars for a decently capable version of gamemaker.  There is nothing wrong with godot, but it doesn’t work the best on mac.  Unity has plenty of 2d features , such as tilemaps, sprites, physics, and particles.  Also, unity and godot are free.
