Hi Dyrwoolf,

Developer of Game Creator here, so our opinion might be a bit biased :-P We participated in a game jam a few weeks ago that featured a side-scroll perspective. It's quite easy to set up. The only limitation is that characters must be 3D models. Here's the Itchio page with a walkthrough: https://catsoftstudios.itch.io/dishonor2d

Here's what you need to take into account: The Input section from the Player must be set as "Side-Scroll". You can choose to navigate through the XY or ZY plane.

If you're going to use the Shooter module, there's an option to aim on a 2D plane. You can check out out latest tutorial to see the Side-Scroll aiming in action.

Cheers!
