A few weeks ago, I posted about my experience attempting to make a prototype in a bunch of different 2D game engines/frameworks to learn what makes them tick.

I've created a video version of the post in case it's helpful for someone out there in search of a 2D game engine or framework.

In it, I cover topics including React, Unity 2D, Godot Engine, Game Maker Studio 2, Construct 3, Phaser 3, and more.

Check it out (26 minute watch):

Hope it helps!
