Hi there I'm a first timer on this forum so I hope I'm putting this in the right place. But anyway I'm new to the whole game design thing. I haven't any reall experience in any fields, programing and the like. But just recently I've been wanting to enter game development via the web. I hear indie developers create things and upload them to Steam or Playstation Network or something. I thought I would like to try that. The problem is I've only been looking at things like Game Maker and Unity 3D. I think Unity is pretty good but I want to know if that's a good one recommended for a beginner.
I want to make a third person action game sort of like Resident Evil 5 with the over the shoulder camera view except it uses magic instead of guns and warlocks instead of zombies.
I thought I could just go with game maker because it looks the easiest but I wanted to break into 3D immediately. So I really want to start there. I also looked up the plug in “Playmaker” for Unity since I don’t know how to code. Plus I'm not really good with math. It looks like it would make things a lot easier. But it feels like using a scripting tool would be cheating. I don’t know why. It's not like I'm trying to break into the gaming industry anyway. To much presser with deadlines and stuff. I like to work at my own pace. So any and all help would be appreciated.
And I know it’s impossible to make a game like this with just me, so some long term help would also be awesome.
