here’s what I’m looking at right now https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_4_6?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=unreal+engine&sprefix=unreal%2Caps%2C198&crid=23FV0AUEJ6NPZ I know they’re not totally up to date, but that shouldn’t make much of a difference unless the Blueprint system gets a complete overhaul each time right?
I want to mainly do 2D/2.5D in the way of mario, streets of rage, river city ransom, megaman, metroid, stuff like that, really just be able to make a simple character who can mimic some of their moves and attacks on just a single platform with one simple enemy, nothing more than that, I’m fine with having to use other sources to get the rest, but I at least want to make something playable that I can build off of, and then try making other games after that, both different genres and also into 3D. I know there isn’t one good book that teaches all of it, but that’s just to give you an idea of what I’m looking for. At the end of today, I’m going to buy a book. Don’t try to convince me not to buy a book. I will possibly save your other suggestions ONLY if they are COMPLETE step-by-step tutorials for making at least one of these games from start to finish, to use on the side, but I WILL be buying a book.
I already ordered this one because I always wanted a good book on C++, and it has amazing reviews for teaching C++ in general. What I would really like now is something that puts a lot of focus on at least making most of some kind of simple game using Blueprint mostly, or C++ if there’s a good book available.
I will only take non-book suggestions if they go step-by-step, start to finish, making at least one totally playable level of a mario or simple megaman clone or something similar. I’ve saved dozens of Youtube playlists, I found some of the live sessions I’m going to try to use to make that ****** megaman clone it seems that guy was able to make, but seriously, I’m mainly making this topic to get a good book suggestion.
So please, understand what I’m looking for and what I’m not looking for in this topic.
