I don't see how; even if you use "visual scripting" you would have to learn basics of coding in order to know what you are doing. Learning to code is not that difficult anyway and it's a lot more rewarding. ;)

Sure, buy a Star Trek computer, and just tell it what you want.

Maybe Scratch? I don't know much about it, but I guess it's popular on the Raspberry Pi. As I understand it, you just connect blocks together to create a program.

That's "visual scripting" but you won't make a game with this, especially if you know nothing about coding. If you want to make a game, don't be lazy.

I like that Star Trek joke. And it may come to that. Voice activated design software. Computer give me Give me Cheese, something like Moviemaker with editing, captions, special effects. i hope there will be a Holodeck one day too. Anyone here want to be Spock or Doctor Who?

Well, yesterday Star Trek was 50 years old, so I had Star Trek on the brain.

You could always learn to use blueprints in UE4.

Very easy to get stuff going!
