I'm an experienced developper and technical leader from Rennes, France. I'm working in laboratory devices, on which I experiences a lot of technologies : C#, C++/Qt, Embedded Linux, Python, ...
Currently, I'm planning to create a indie game. I'm writing the Game Design Document, and looking for the right technology to implement it. For now it's a hobby, but I hope it could be a real game some day.
What I'm sure of now is that the game graphics would be isometric with square tiles. I first evaluated Godot, which is full of features, allows 2D and 3D, and has a powerful isometric mode. However, it is not designed specifically for isometric display, so it may miss some features in this domain.
Now I'm testing FIFE, which is a real isometric game engine and everything useful for this. It seems more appropriated to me, but I still have some questions :
- In the first place, my game would be played on PC. If I finally release it, I'd like to have it work on android too. I found some posts about this topics, and I know it doesn't work yet, but that could be a part of my work to to the job, so is it completely impossible ? hard but possible ? easy ?
- Do you think it would be possible to integrate a FIFE window in a Qt GUI ? Qt is great for many things and especially the GUI, so I'l love to use them together. I managed to embed an Irrlicht window in a Qt container some yars ago, so I think it may be possible ?
Right now, that's the only questions that bother me. I'll ask more when I have investigated more !
By the way, FIFE is really impressive in doing isometric games !
