I have been trying to decide how to proceed on learning game-design for a bit, and I figured it would be best to get some advice as I have no real experience in this. I have made a few levels using UE4, but I have no experience in coding. That said, Unity is supposedly(?) easier to pick up and learn to code in? So here is my real issue: Where should I start and with what tutorials would you recommend?
I want to design games, as stated, and do take well to the idea of designing worlds. I write down a lot of world and story ideas and like to brainstorm on them. But as stated, no experience with coding or sketching for that matter. So should I learn to code? If so, should I go with C#? Should I try visual scripting and if so, any ideas of where to learn? I seek to primarily make 3D games, but not AAA quality graphics or anything, so does that rule out UE4?
I know I seem a bit all over, and that is sadly part of my brain that tries to question every damn thing I do. Any help and comments appreciated!
