    I can't believe Brackeys, using Unity, is sponsored by other game engines.

    Definitely stealing that Moscow method, but instead I'm going to divide my ideas by 0, because it's unfathomable that I can finish anything 😅

    Brakeys: pen and paper doesn't need an update.

    This video couldn't have come at a better time. I decided to participate in my first Game Jam this year and was looking for some pointers. I'm super excited!

    I always wonder how game developers can learn so many skills quickly. They have to be able to model, make art, do sound design, code (some of the time) and so much more. I'm going to university for game design and development and, honestly, having to be able to do all this is fucking terrifying. I'm certain that 3 years is not long enough to learn all this.

    Sir I've liked your videos for being so intuitive . You serve as a great inspiration to me 🔥 I always try to make game devlogs like you and eventually fail 😅 Can you give me some tips to make more engaging videos for my channel?

    Nice video! The tips you showed here would've really helped me and my friend during the Quarantine Jam, especially things like planning and...

    The worst part about game jams is that they often jam your brain.

    I'm here to say thank you, I always tried to jump into game design, but never found some good tutorials. As I future Eletric Engineer I hope to be better at progamming as you are.

    Hey Brackeys, Could you do a tutorial on making a character selection screen, like in smash bros or streetfighter that also spawns in the prefabs or something. Thanks :)

    Hey dude, your videos are so super helpful. Have you ever considered doing another engine? You're such a unique and shining beacon of guidance in the game dev world, and I think you could get some great response with basic tutorials in like unreal or cryengine too! Maybe convert some of your early tutorials into those engines. Either way, keep up the good work.

    Game jams are definitely my favourite way to create new games! You always learn something new that you will use somewhere in the future!

    I'd recommend Krita instead of GIMP. It's honestly amazing and I use it even to Photoshop pictures. ( It's more drawing focused )
