Basic Game Ideas to Help Me Learn Lua

Hello, my name is jmaster1426 and I’m a beginner scripter. I’ve been watching beginner scripter tutorials for a week now, but I would like to put my new knowledge to work. Right now I would like to create a basic game to help me learn. The only problem is, I don’t have any idea on what to make. If you guys have any suggestions, please tell me. Also, if you have any tips for a beginner scripter like me, please share. Thank you! :smiley:


I think you should not make a game. Take a free model, edit its scripts. Then make your own scripts. After that work for people on short term contracts. When you have at least 3-5 month experience then make your own game. Using this method will also help you get money to advertise your game.

I’ve been going through some free models, but whenever I reach something I don’t understand, I have no idea what to do next. If you have any ideas on what to do from there, please reply. Thank you.

When you reach something you don’t understand, what i like to do is search up its purpose on devhub, and I usually get the answer :slight_smile:

That is what I did when learning basic scripting. Like the first thing I did was taking a street light and making it like it only turns on at night and turns off when it is day.

make a sword fighting game
you can use free models and delete the viruses
and also edit them as well

i started with an obby, its pretty easy to make without scripting though

First games are usually obbies. If you can try to make your own, you might be getting somewhere.

If you get stuck, read Roblox’s API. If that’s not helping, watch a youtube video. If you still don’t understand, write a post in the #help-and-feedback:scripting-support topic.

I hope this helped.

Your best bet is probably to make an obby game. If you make an obby you could get a good understanding of the Roblox Physics (assuming you add moving parts). Make sure to only make what you really feel passionate about tho. Don’t just make a game like it’s some kind of forced task, because that will make you demotivated. I went kind of off topic there, but I feel like it’s important.

Have a nice day! <3
