I'm a complete beginner, and I'd like to make a simple game

Hi there,

I’m a complete beginner, I know a bit of python, HTML5, and bit of javascript, though I’ve never coded a game.
I would like to learn how to make a basic game, similar to the one shown in the My First Demo project.
I figure I need to learn how to do things like add a new level once the ball reaches the teleporter.

Please give me tips of where to start. Especially for games that can be played in VR.

If you have a publicly available project you have created, please link to it. I would love to look under the hood and see what the code looks like.

Thanks for any help!

You can explore the user manual first.

If you want to look at public projects, you can browse the the ‘explore’ page here: https://playcanvas.com/explore/featured

And look through, featured, active etc tabs to see more.

I would also pitch this tutorial I recently wrote for creating a space shooter game in PlayCanvas

Takes you through everything starting from the beginning (with an included final project). I hope you find it helpful!
