Hey, I’ve been thinking about making a strategy game like Hearts of Iron IV, about the same topic (WW2). But the problem is that I have no clue where do I even start with anything. There has never been any proper tutorial that I could use for creating my game. I’d surely appreciate any tips, etc.
Think about the foundational mechanics of the game and then start building from there, after comes refining the game more and then polishing it
So for example I took a look at the game and it looks to have a unique camera system so that could be starting point for you to work towards and then after that maybe the map
I haven’t thought about focusing about the foundation of the game because I’m mostly worried about how do I make the territories, troop movement, etc. I’ll probably start with the camera as you said. Appreciate it.
Yeah just dont overwhelm yourself with everything, take a step back and just anaylze all the building blocks mechanics or mechanics that are needed for the game to actually even be playable, dont be distracted by the clutter
