So i know this question has been hammered down several times but please bear with me.
I used to be a C# .Net application developer but i am no longer employed, i am pretty good at C#.
I want to get into serious game development and i dunno where to start, i used to work with unity occasionally which is a very little and i kinda find it clunky, like it works but somehow it does not feel right and feels kinda clunky. But it works with tiled map editor without much of a hassle.
I Remember using Game maker studio when i was back in college and i found it very good, its a breeze to work with and even have its own tiled map editor, even seems to have some good tutorials, the only con is its price.
I was initially inclined towards Monogame cause of my C# background, but i neither have time nor money and resources to support me for long enough time to be able to code every single thing from scratch and i am kinda in a pretty bad situation overall right now. It just takes too much time to do anything even to make it work with a tiled map editor, and there are very few tutorials or documentation to start with.
It seems like the only option for me is Unity at the moment, cause of ease of access and how easy it is to work with tiled map editor and lots of tutorials.
which one do you guys think is good overall?
Please keep in mind that i am currently unemployed and have very little resources to support myself, and i am a programmer so i don't even know how to compose music and do art for the game and i'd prefer if it provides some asserts to be used so i wont waste time in learning stuff when i cannot afford to spend time.
I will eventually learn them but not now, its not happening now so i prefer something that comes with some sorta free asserts that can be used (mainly music and art), I mean does it even matter if all i am trying to do is earn a decent minimum living?
I just want to make simple 2D NES/Snes style games with multiplayer support.
