So i’m not a developer i’m a busy full-time student, I have no coding experience, for the past year i’ve been messing about with Construct 2 in my free time as it allows you to make games really easily with no code whatsoever. I chose it because the free version is viable and lets you upload to sites like newgrounds, and i’ve done a few very small projects already. However i’ve always had a (2D) game in mind that was the reason I got into this as a hobby and its all I really want to make. I found out UE4 was free and i’m interested but I have no idea what the difference in time and effort would be if I used this engine instead.
I’d be willing to spend a few months (of free time, not full time) learning relevant bits of C++ if it would make this a viable engine for me to use. Tell me if i’m being unrealistic or if this is an option. I’m getting skeptical of Construct 2 tbh because i’ve yet to see any decent games come out of it and the community is tiny.
Thanks, tell me politely if i’m being dumb, i’m not part of this sphere
