I want to create a new game, which is going to be a small chat where you have an avatar you can move around a fixed board.

I've been looking a bit on GTGE, however i can see the last update was in 2005, so i am wondering if this is still usable? And would it be recommended to do so?

I've used Slick2d before, but i found the lack of built in collision detection and UI features very lacking.

Is GTGE still good? What game engine should i be using?

I've used GTGE and it was fine, despite the fact that it hasn't been updated in a while.

I've also used Slick and it was awesome.

It really is your choice, try making something simple with both and see which you like better.

Another decent library is libGDX, since you can port it to web and android, and hopefully iOS soon... It is very different though, so it might be too much for a simple project.

Busy between school, work, life, games, programming and general screwing around.
If you'd like some pixel art for your game, send me a PM, i'll see what I can do.

I would recommend LibGDX too for 2D.
