Linux / WINE constant crashes

    I tried that one already but it does not really work on Linux and it looks like it's not made for the kind of game i want to create.

    Which game you want to create?

    RPG Maker is also a good game engine to make casual adventure games. Besides, it's new build (RPG Maker MV) will be coming on 23th this month. Very beginner friendly without need to know many scripts. And it will support other platforms and will have a few problem because Kadokawa Games are bigger than VS team.

    But it will be more expensive than VS's indie game independent license.

    A very small team consisting of 3 programmers who work on the engine in their spare time.


    Then those three people worked together from 10 years ago. Must be they are good teammates each other.


    No. The original team consisted of other developers. The only original developer left is Alex. David (BigStans) joined the development team about three to four years ago & SimonS joined about a year or two ago.

    So it means you have been sticking with VS since it's first version launched? WoW. You may know every history of VS!

    I want to make a very simple game. A first person point and click. Just different scenes with buttons to click and puzzles/conditions to "solve". I tried briefly looked at RPG Maker VX ACE and it looked like there is no way to add a simple background to a scene. All the games looked like tile based mini rpgs to me.

    This is pretty much the direction i want to go: http://www.visionaire-studio.net/forum/thread/template-colle... (The first person draft) but i want to add stats to the actors as well like trust level and such things.

    P.S.: Just in the last couple of minutes Visionaire crashed three times, this is strang.

    Then VS is perfect and refined engine for your choice.

    Maybe trial version contains some bugs I guess. I wonder same things happen in actual version. Strange.

    Is the trial different to the "normal" version? My impression was that it's the normal version just without the export function.

    VS is fine for first person, although it wasn't really created for it. Alternatively you could consider checking out Game Maker Studio. It has loads of support cross-platform wise. I think it has editors for windows, mac & linux but can't confirm this right now as their website seems to be offline.

    * edit #1: website is working again. Apparently it's only for windows. Sorry.

    * edit #2: you may find this useful: https://www.gamingonlinux.com/crowdfunding/index.php/Game_En...


    @ Deshini: no mate, I've not followed it from the beginning. I joined up a few years ago & joined (not really sure you can say officially) the team as English support shortly thereafter. I get team builds, have control over the wiki & get to chip in with ideas & suggestions & my thoughts & opinions on various features etc.

    Hey thx for all the tips. smile

    I already tried GameMaker: Studio but as you said it's windows only and the price is too much for me needs.

    I tried a lot of other engines and editors as well, i did pretty much nothing else the last three days. The "problem" is that i have no experience in developing games and I learn the best from redoing tutorials and then stepping the game up from there. The best linux compatible tool i found would be "Game Develop" but it lacks in tutorials for my specific case.

    Don't get me wrong, i am a developer but i do that on my day job so i want to focus on the story and scripting when doing a game as a hobby. That's the reason why i am looking for a simple solution like VS.

    Yes but construct 2 is windows only (editor). A lot of the engines are windows only.

    UDK (unreal engine) is now free & would be a valid solution. I believe it has 2D support (also 3D obviously) & has an optional action / event system for development similar to VS (Blueprint) for non programmers.
