2-D Side Scroller
« on: March 25, 2013, 08:55:51 pm »

Is FIFE limited to just Isometric view points or can I use a side-scrolling viewpoint?

Thanks for reading!

fife can be used for side scrollers but it's not something fife specializes in.  Check out the shooter demo, it's a side scroller I put together without a whole bunch of work.

Thanks! One more quick question  ;D I know I can use Blender for artwork but can I use it for all the art? This would include maps, characters, animations etc.

You sure can.  FIFE uses image files for most of it's graphics so things need to be pre-rendered by you.  You can use any piece of software that generates image files and blender will work great for that!  It all comes down to your workflow and how you want your game to look.
