Beginner gamedev? Has anyone used Scratch?


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:
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, to avoid any security risks. Have fun with your game dev journey and stay safe in Valorant!
