 The purpose of this guide is to walk you through the process of creating a simple game from scratch using your own custom-made resources. While some detail will be provided for each step, it is recommended that you have a basic understanding of the editors. If you are unsure of the controls or how to complete a certain action, refer to the individual editor guides that are available from the sidebar. As new features are added to the software, I intend to update this guide accordingly to cover those new features. If there is any particular functionality that you think would be useful to include, please let me know! The purpose of this guide is to walk you through the process of creating a simple game from scratch using your own custom-made resources.

It is important that the [[animation]] is named "​walk"​ exactly (in all lowercase). When playing, the game will look for an [[animation]] with this name and trigger it whenever the [[character]] is moving. The project files linked at the top of this tutorial also includes an "​idle"​ [[animation]] for the bike and a slightly improved "​walk"​ animation. The "​idle"​ [[animation]] is another type of [[predefined_animation_names|predefined animation]] which automatically plays whenever the [[character]] is not moving.
