This is pretty much a huge stage for ROBLOX. ROBLOX recently went on the stock market, and it’s popularity is significantly increasing on the daily. With that, I think we need to step up development from the simulators and things we currently have. Not saying they aren’t fun or anything, I seriously just believe we can do better.
That’s not the post, so I’ll get straight to it. I am looking for a way to make a 2D Platformer in ROBLOX. I understand this is not an easy thing, and I have tried numerous game engines previously created but they are outdated and don’t function correctly. One of these is Upside Engine, which is the best one probably but it doesn’t work.
I would like to hear everyone’s ideas on this. Most people who comment won’t know how to make this, but I am pretty certain it requires days of effort to make one. I am willing to put in that time to make a 2D Game Engine, because cmon guys that would be really fun. There isn’t an actual 2D game on ROBLOX, the most similar was Vibrant Venture but they have branched off.
The character needs a hitbox, and a weapon as well, which means images will need to be loaded frame by frame for animations. I am a graphics artist, so I can create those images but I wouldn’t know how to go about making a frame by frame animation.
I have tried numerous methods involving “chunk loading” type systems with ImageLabels. They SORT OF work, but not really. I’m looking to make a game like Hollow Knight, however that isn’t very simple. I’ve also attempted making the character move, which I accomplished pretty easily since all you have to do is make the position on the X or Y axis, while on 3D games there is also the Z axis to deal with.
The character moving broke, however, when I tried to make the character an image and I’ve since then I kind of given up on this since it’s a bit out of my level (or I think, since no one has done it before and I don’t know how I would do it).
( Assets / Links that could help you, help me! )
If I do find how to create this, I will release it to the public after I make my game so everyone is able to do this. You will be able to tinker with it and stuff as well. I will not provide anyone too much assistance if this becomes a thing, since I want everyone to experiment with it.
Thank you for reading, have a nice day. If anyone is really serious and likes my ideas, DM me;
