Seeking advice and direction.

So I need advice on creating a pixel sprite game…
My goal is to create a zelda like game, a fighting game, and or a strategy game.

Before I delve into the videos I had a couple questions.

First, can anyone recommend a good free program for sprite creation? Something that could do simple animations would be amazing, but if I have to draw all the individual frames for things like movement or attacks I am fine with that.

Secondly, Can anyone recommend any specific Unreal engine 4 tutorials for making a sprite based game?

Lastly can anyone recommend any good communities for sprite art or animation? Like facebook groups or forums?

Thank you :slight_smile:

try this: (this one has a free version) or this
a tutorial:

  1. you could take a look at algodoo -> there you can create 2d stuff + animation (after you have created the animation, you just have to make pics of the single frames)
