Introduction to the game
Because we learned a lot about scripting in Luau throughout the previous chapters, we will create an entire game together in this chapter. Therefore, this chapter is divided into multiple sections. Each section creates a part of our game. However, before we can start creating this, we need to understand the game we will make.
In this chapter, we will create a simulator game. Simulators are a popular genre on Roblox. In essence, players collect some sort of currency in their backpacks. Then, they can sell this currency for in-game money. When they do this, they can purchase upgrades, pets, or even rebirth their character to restart the game with a money boost.
Now that we know what simulators are, let us look at the game we will make ourselves. Because this book is about programming, we will provide a great map that was uniquely made for this book. This map was made by Cole Tucker (1Coai):
