I want to create games, I don't mean commerical games. I have no interest in that. I just want to create games for myself and only simple games too.
But I am a very VERY frustrated game creator. why? Well I bought Game Maker Studio over a year ago and having watched probably 100-140 videos on it and tried to do many things, I always failed. My last game idea, a platform game like the 1980's donkey kong. but I couldn't even get ladders working with my player at all, and I spent weeks on trying the code out, recoding it and looking up tutorials. Nothing worked for me.
So after well over a year of frustration, today GMS has been uninstalled. I'm sure it's a fine product for expert coders, but it is not beginner friendly and their official forum is very beginner unfriendly and rather elitist.
anyway. my question!
Even though I failed with GMS, I still have the urge and need to create games for myself, so after much searching online I found Fusion (I did find others first but they have a yearly subscription and I hate that. I want to buy software and own it, not rent it)
but before I throw money at Click Team, I am posting here to ask, is this right for me? or is it going to be too hard to use like GMS was?
I really am happy to spend time learning to use it and I don't expect to turn out a donkey kong game in a month lol. but just how easy is this software to use?
Thank you and I welcome your input and ideas.
