It’s time to break away from tutorials and push my knowledge and creativity in Unreal 4. Over the last few days I have been working on taking a prototype I originally put together in Game Maker and transferring it into UE4.
The original Game Maker platformer was put together with help from Shaun Spalding’s tutorials, available here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCn7FE3Tx391g1tWPv-1tv7Q.
Here’s my version:
I was interested to see how Paper 2D compared to Game Maker. I’ve always found Game Maker very easy to use and was curious as to how Paper 2D compared. I also wanted to know how Paper 2D fits with the Blueprints in UE4 and its pros and cons in relation to Game Maker’s interface.
I started this exploration by completing the Paper2D Official tutorial, shown below.
The video above shows my recreation of the Unreal 4 YouTube tutorial, available here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZlv_N0_O1gauJh60307mE_67jqK42twB
What I did:
After a brief hiatus I’ve made another prototype in Game Maker. The basic idea is to create a puzzle game which is based on teleporting a character between two points, as in the video below.
