I just wanted to ask what engine you think would be best suited for the following:
--2D sidescrolling fighting game in the style of Double Dragon/Final Fight
--Sprite based graphics, though a bit on the higher end like newer King of Fighters games
--Game is planned for Steam and Ouya (I guess Ouya is more Android related), but whatever makes for easier porting to that
--Game will have background, middle ground (where characters will be and interact), and some foreground
I am the writer, concept artist, and lots of others things except the programmer, but I would like to research possible engines to discuss with the other members of the team when its time to decide on which engine we will use.
Whatever is best for what I listed above, 2D sidescrolling fighter for Steam and Ouya, sprite based.
Can be a free engine or one with a small licensing fee. I am open to all suggestions.
Thank you for your time in advance.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
