How to create a game without coding in 2023?

Who has never dreamed of creating a video game? A dream that seems quite complicated to achieve, especially when you don't have the necessary technical skills. But what if it was possible to create a video game with a simple drag and drop? What if you could let your imagination take over and create a game from scratch without having any technical skills?

· Video Games

Making video games can be very technically complex, as they often require a large amount of code and advanced programming to handle graphics, user interface, physics, animations, and player interactions. In addition, video games can be very demanding in terms of computing resources, especially memory and CPU.

However, there are no-code tools that make it easy and intuitive to create video games, even without programming knowledge. For example, GameMaker and Buildbox are platforms that provide visual interfaces for creating games using predefined elements and customizing settings. These no-code tools are often used by beginners and hobbyists to create video games without having to learn to code.

The point of using no-code tools to create video games is to allow people with no programming knowledge to start creating games and express themselves creatively. These tools are also useful for quickly prototyping game ideas and learning the basics of game creation before moving on to more advanced development tools.

No Code and Low Code: the difference?

We often hear about No Code and Low Code by confusing the two, whereas they are two very different things. So what are the concrete differences between these two practices? It is important to know that these two practices are not intended for the same public and the same project. Where Low Code is mainly aimed at developers who are already able to code and wish to improve their productivity by improving the efficiency of existing IT resources, No Code is mainly aimed at people who do not know how to code at all and wish to set up and develop applications, websites or automated scrapping.

There are many Low Code tools used by a large number of companies. If you use Excel tables or Google Sheet to analyze, process data and produce results, you are in fact already doing Low Code! It is now possible to create a mobile application, a database, an API or a mobile web application from tools such as PowerApps, Airtable or Excel, this is the emergence of Low Code.

Unlike No Code which does not require writing lines of code, Low Code requires a certain level of minimal skill in writing a computer language. It requires about 20% to 30% of programming depending on the project. Low Code can be understood at first sight by a team member with no programming skills, but it requires the intervention of a developer to finalize the creation of the product. Low Code tools are then rather intended for developers wishing to improve their productivity by allowing them to build in a more efficient, more agile and less complex way. Low Code is an in-between between "classic" development and the No Code creation method, minimizing the number of lines of code to be written.

In practice, No Code and Low Code tools can meet and complement each other. Some market players consider No Code platforms to be specialized Low Code platforms dedicated to specific business needs or to prototyping projects that are being launched. It also happens that No Code tools are used on one part of a website (the front end) and Low Code tools for another part (the back end for example).
