  2. Too many interruptions during the video makes it not easy to watch, with constant interruptions to mention this video, or that video, or check this and check that. Stay on the point it would make for better videos.

  3. I can't decide between Unity2D and GameMaker Studio 2. I've already bought GMS2 so I thought I would just use it but then I thought it would be better to use Unity because that's the engine I'll use for 3D games.

  4. On our side, We're using and recommending the powerful and underrated Open source 2d game engine Orx:
