How much overhead does PM add to a game?
« on: March 27, 2014, 09:10:58 PM »
My game is pretty much finished except for the tutorial. I'm thinking of using PlayMaker to do the tutorial. Nothing complicated. Just a help button that enables little pop-ups to appear when taping UI elements. The pop-ups will explain the use of the corresponding UI elements. Also there will be a window in the middle which sliding panels that explain the actual gameplay.

So i'm just wondering about the overhead of PM. Does just adding the clean new PlayMaker asset add a lot of size to the game app and does it slow it down much?

 You'll be fine. PlayMaker overhead is marginal compared to the productivity you'll get out of it. Like any frameworks, it's a balance between how performent it can be and it's footprin on your project.
