Quickest way to learn how to make a 2D point and click adventure game?


I am new to game development and would like to learn how to create a 2D point and click adventure game (like Quest for Glory, King’s Quest…). What is the quickest way to learn?

Note, I already know object oriented programming, so I don’t need to learn that part of it

Also, I see that unity now has a 2D option. Will that work for this type of game, or is it meant more for platformers and arcade style games?

Hey, I’m trying to do the same thing. I’m putting helpful scripts on my game’s blog from time to time, and I’ve just posted one on how to do mouse clicks in 2D taking into account sorting layers and sorting order. This is where I’m starting so maybe it would be a good start for you too? Here’s a link to the post and the script I’ve written: Not Quite Black and White

And here’s a bunch of tutorials that I’ve found useful for getting started in Unity so far (I’ve been bookmarking the good ones):

Learn game development w/ Unity | Courses & tutorials in game design, VR, AR, & Real-time 3D | Unity Learn (recommended to start with these if you haven’t already)

Unity 4.3 2D Sprite Animation - YouTube - Animating with Sprite Sheets

- YouTube - Working in 2D and animating


It would be just impossible to any of us guide you in certain points what you must do. Your best and faster bet are tutorials on youtube, there are just tons of them. Most of them start with very basics, like ui and that kind of stuff, so its pretty easy to follow.

Hi, we made a 2d/2.5d point and click and it is now available on the asset store at Unity Asset Store - The Best Assets for Game Making
