How Game Engines Work!

Disclaimer: This is intended for people who aren't entirely sure what a "game engine" is. I have more in-depth programming videos on my channel, this is just how I'd explain engines in general to a non-dev friend :) It's also one of my oldest videos from when I had very few subscribers, I'll redo it if I ever have a chance.

*WHAT ABOUT CLICKTEAM FUSION DEVELOPER 2.5?!* It is very easy to use, some brilliant games like The Escapists or FNAF [eugh] were made in MMF2/CF2.5 [The same software, but different editions.] I do not understand GameMaker: Studio, tho I understand Python and _some_ of PyGame + OpenGL. Rly? This is easy? GM:S is just too complicated. Not like Clickteam Fusion Developer. If you want to learn about this software I suggest to you "The Game Making Journey" by 3kliksphilip, where he shows how he made his great games in MMF2 then in CF2.5. MMF2 is very simple, yet it supports OpenGL [yes, it's primitive but you can do some great stuff with it], Mode7EX [for simple pseudo-3D games] and shaders [very cool, you can make a good footstep effect with Complex-Software and Looki's Shader Pack 2]. I suggest it to everyone who is starting to make games. It is so simple it has built-in EVERYTHING that you wouldn't want to program it yourself. That includes *physics, movement [no need to "IF USER PRESSED LEFT MOVE LEFT, just select from the list movement you want to use!] , rendering Pseudo-3D [only Mode7Ex], animations, and code syntax checker that says everything that you did wrong.* This software is just... genius.

if Unreal Engine is so good, why don't they use real engine? lmao.

I only used AGS (Adventure Game Studio), an Adventure Game Maker engine... And sometimes, It's quite easy and sometimes it's quite complicated a bit...

You explain what the UI of the application of game engines rather than how game engines work and how it makes the games run.

I Use Unreal
Andrew k*** (20 days ago)
Unity is actually a very high end engine that even gives Unreal a difficult time when it comes to graphics, performance and usability. Because it was also free and Unreal was not, alot of "wanna be developers" made sad excuses of games and then pushed them to Steam, hoping to make a few bucks.
qvindicator (13 days ago)
Unreal is still the best engine out there because it is so advanced, you can do more stuff with it. Unity is really simple and that makes it easy to learn but it also gives it limitations. Unreal engine is more complicated. This makes it harder to learn but you can do way more stuff in it. Also it is easier to make better looking games in Unreal because you can create your own shaders using drag and drop code. That is why unity has its look for games. Because most people use the built in shaders. That is also why you can't really tell the difference between Unreal and professional games. Because most people create their own shaders.

A game engine is like a Iibrary. If you need to do a task, you may go to a library to find specific books. This cuts down your learning curve, because tools of research have been done for you already

Haha build your one game engine. Yeah right.. The times where one person alone can make a resonable game are long gone ..like in 1991 when sid meier did civ1. Yeah technically you can do it. But you will waste a lot of time and fail miserable. You will have much more luck with making a mod. Mods can be so good that they become new games. Like Leage of Legends, Counterstrike, Team Fortress. The most played games today were once player mods. The only problem with that is that you wont see any modey for it :-]

Joseph Glenn (3 months ago)
Oh please, you use BLUEPRINTS with unreal engine? UE4 Supports C++, so you could use that instead. 1: Blue prints are not as fast as C++ at runtime, 2: they make you a skid, 3: their abilities are limited, 4: believe it or not, if you know C++, then then development time is much quicker, I cannot believe you are too weak to use C++ over blueprints, *rolls eyes*

I'm really, really disappointed that you had confused To The Moon's engine, plus the lack of RPG Maker's engine. I know that you cant cover every engine, but I would say that RPG Maker I'd more renowned than gamemaker.

Unreal engine is really not that good. It just looks nice, which is how most people judge a game.

You can actually have photorealism in Unity, Most people just don't use that and use unity for simpler things because unity is pretty easy to learn..
