Hi all, first post, and a Pixi.js noob trying to learn the ropes - so please be gentle!
First off, I'm a designer by trade (www.digilocker.co.uk - shameless plug) but I have dabbled in coding over the years mainly on a UI Development basis (AS3 Scaleform, Flash, C# Unity). A lot of my work at the moment is casino games, and we've been looking for a modern alternative for putting these together. Previously games would be made strictly in canvas using sprite sheets and keyframed animations for the most part. I've started using Spine for animations, which in turn has led us to Pixi.js as front runner for a renderer (with most mobiles now supporting webgl). Phaser looked attractive, but not sure it would offer the low level access the developers would need to hook into the backend. My role really is to get a prototype together in some form to showcase animations, get the frontend together and roll that onto future games as we learn the possibilities. Previously tried Animate CC but webgl offerings are seriously limited I think there atm, so thought it was time to get my hands dirty!
Thanks in advance!
