Create a Top-Down Shooter/RPG

Anyone have any good links or collection of tutorials on making a top down game stashed away?

I am leaning towards using the Unreal Engine.

I have Zbrush and Maya so i can make the 3d art assets, i just don’t know how to apply them.

This will be my first time creating a game, i saw a tutorial on how to code the mouse to move the player where you click it which sparked my interest in making a game, but it was using the Unity Engine. I would be fine with using either, but i would like to know what the more experience lot has to say about this situation.

Would love as much info as possible, thank you!!

*I am looking for references to guide me along the process for example: Code programs you use or anything else people with more experience than me use to create such a game.

There are both a Top Down example and a Twin Stick Shooter example provided by Unreal if you make a new project. If you want to see video guides check out this link or check the youtube channel

For art stuff read this documentation Unreal has something to use with Maya for rigging but I don’t remember the location at the moment.

Epic Games have an excellent Top Down Shooter tutorial series on Youtube: - YouTube
It introduces you to both C++ and Blueprints as well, so you can decide which you prefer… or even use both. :slight_smile:
