I still don't have any idea how to start develop my first game. I already buy the impactjs but still stuck. I already saw the video using weltmeister and download the bio lab entities and media pack but still don't know how to start. It doesn't seem a full source code for bio lab sample code.

Please advice. Thank you.

Yes, the Biolab code is not provided. There are just a few entities that help you with your games, but not a full game.

Did you watch the Pong video and try to make that game? That's a good first start:

I started with Jesse's book ( link).

Very good and easy to follow.

After that I started with impact++ ( link)

I'm still a noob at creating games, but I'm improving slowly lol.

I also recommend Jesse's book, but I'd stay away from Impact++ if you are a beginner. There are lots of games you can make with the basic Impact engine and some plugins from the forum and on Point of Impact.

I recommend trying to build basic games first.

Once you get comfortable with how Impact works, only then would I attempt to add Impact++ to it. It's good, but it's added complexity that you'll only need when you want to do something more advanced.

When I started out, this game Dino Love helped me understand how triggers could be used. It kind of substituted for not having the Biolab Disaster source code.
