Beginner gamedev? Has anyone used Scratch?

Hi!

I've just found this community and am on Day One of #startcoding. I recently started my journey into CompSci with the EdX course "CS50T" (I recommend it for anyone who's a total beginner!). The final assignment is creating something using MIT's Scratch. Of course I want to learn how to actually code, but being able to see something right away is great. I think I might make my "mission goal" to get this simple game working well and then re-create it using a game engine and code. Would anyone have advice on choosing a language for gamedev?

Or I might try following this post:

Here's my little game by the way:
https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/552029902/
I'm still tweaking it.

Has anyone tried out Scratch before? Was it a good jumping-off point?

Recently, the company I work for decided to advertise and release their own game. The idea was cool, but finding the necessary specialists took a lot of time. But in the end we still managed to find a great team of developers and I would like to tell you about my experience of working with them. Arrible offers a full suite of game development service, so if you have such a request you can contact them. This team has proved that they are excellent experts in the field of game development. They fulfilled all the conditions of work and created a really decent product. I recommend them!

Hey there! If you're a beginner in game development, Scratch is a fantastic place to start. It's super user-friendly with its drag-and-drop interface, making it easy to learn the basics of coding and game design. Tons of tutorials and a supportive community make it a great first step.

On another note, if you're into Valorant and concerned about hardware bans, using a Valorant HWID spoofer can help. It changes your hardware ID, preventing bans from sticking to your system. Just make sure to use trusted spoofers from lol-script.com/hwid-spoofer, to avoid any security risks. Have fun with your game dev journey and stay safe in Valorant!
