As a developer of Audio Games, I have recently come to hit a bit of a question.
Is BGT worth it?
A year ago, I'd have said yes.
It is a great language for coding beginner games. It serves, and can be twisted, into making some pretty epic stuff if you know what you are doing. Hell, nearly all of my games released so far are BGT.
What I have noticed though is as of recently, BGT has begun to spark windows defender interest.
For no reason or fault of the developer, windows defender has begun to delete the game files, mistakenly thinking them viruses.
As this problem is unlikely to be resolved by the blastbay games toolkit maker, as I understand it BGT development is at an all time stand still, I have begun to look for other areas, other languages, to develop in.
It made me wonder though, what do you players think?
If a game is made in BGT, are you likely to play it/
Is it worth me continuing development of games in BGT, which allows faster speeds, of releases but means you, the user have to add acceptions to defender?
Or, would you prefer me to drop BGT entirely, and focus on other languages. I have found so far, that python is a viable option, excusing the fact the game sizes increase drasticly compared to BGT.
So, there is my question.
Is BGT worth it/
I look forward to your responses.
