Game from Scratch
Welcome to the second tutorial in the Defold Game Engine series by Game from Scratch. Today we look at how a Defold application works. How collections, game objects and components are used together to create games. We then look at attaching a script and how the game lifecycle is resolved.
Our tutorials section is the perfect place to start from if you are new to Defold game development.
This tutorial is intended to give a taste of what making games in Defold is about. It goes through creating a new project, based on a simple side-scroller. You will then learn how to tweak the game to make it more fun. Finally you will add a new game object. The tutorial should only take about 10 minutes.
