    Starting with game programming

    Hello, I would like to start programming games. So in the direction of AOE2. Do you have some good tips or links?

    Do you have experience with any particular programming language? You can use pretty nearly anything, these days, though some will be better than others for games.

    Unreal Engine has a visual programming language called BluePrint, but it would take weeks if not more to master it. It's multi-platform, so your game would run anywhere. It's free, but they take 5% after you make $3000/Quarter. Here are YouTube tutorials. I only watched the first two, and they don't seem to be the easiest, there are probably better tutorials out there. There are tutorials if you download the engine, but I haven't downloaded it yet. YMMV.

    Visual Studio 2019 (and I think 2017) include Unreal Engine and Unity as part of the install, although they have their own licencing agreements anyway. It is just as easy really to download either unity or unrealed and try some of the tutorials.

    I have Visual Studio 2017, and Unreal engine is not included, only Unity. The main difference between the two is that Unreal is using C++ while Unity is using C#.

    After watching YouTube videos 1-6, things only seem interesting after video 4. It seems that some concepts should have been explained at the beginning, but were not. I am guessing the tutorials included in the engine are of better quality, but I don't know.
