    Hi,
    I have my team(rookies)
    We are all beginners on making an android game
    and we have a plan on making an RPG card game
    I know there are a lot of RPG card games now.
    But we have this new ideas we have
    but we don't know how to start.

    what tools should we
    use?
    specially for the art.

    Hello,
    Would you be willing to do it as a browser game?
    If so I'm a programmer and might have a 2d artist to join.

    As your starting I wouldn't go straight in for the final look, maybe start with images done in Microsoft paint and get the gameplay working, then move to a more professional package to finish the game off.

    Hi.

    I would love to know if I could enter your team, I am a newbie but I have some knowledge of the subject
    For some years I love the theme of developing video games and I have spent some time studying about it.

    If there is something wrong translated is that I do not speak English because I am Latin American, so if there is something that is not very well written I'm sorry.

    My email is edilsonpertuz3@gmail.com. :D

    Hi,

    A possible option that i would recommend is to use Cocos2D-X its free and open source. I have been using it for the last 4 years. Its a great platform. Although it lacks an good Editor, for someone with some experience in coding (javascript or C++) you can create very good games. In addition its cross platform so later you may be able to publish your game in other platforms as well.

    Unity is also a good option, it has a very good Editor for fast implementations but it lacks a bit in the coding part. As the object oriented architecture is based in Unity.
