Recently, entering the game industry market has become much easier, thanks to development tools and resources with game assets.

Typically, a novice developer prefers to develop with the simplest 2D games written on tools such as Construct 2, Unity3d, Unreal Engine. They allow you to quickly learn and publish your work on the AppStore and Google Play.
