This is a very important thought for a developer/designer

I believe that only a revision in Abnegation Tutorial should be enough.

This is just the "Game Development" section, not the "Pokémon Games Made In Essentials" section.
I agree with the__end. We need to focus in the best options, but not totally excluding the others options.

Maybe this gets well if you fuse tutorials section with the main section.

I'm writing a mapping tutorial as we speak. I also think that it might be helpful to provide exercises and challenges for the reader when writing them, this could be particularly handy when it come down to scripting tutorials.
Game Development Monthly, as I said in my post.
