2D vs 3D game application

Hello friends,

How is a 2D game diferent from a 3D game in broader terms like programming complexity, resources/assets involved, need of other tools/applications to achieve an objective, need of human resources other than programmer etc?

And finally, should a new bie start with 2D development first or he/she can directly plunge into 3D world?


Try reading:



If you read those and understand them well. “Yeah, no problem.” kind of understanding… then 3D is probably ok to start with.

If you read those and are like “Multiply the what by the who?” then maybe 2D is a better place to start.
