it seems focused on online games, MAEK ONLINE PLUGIN DAMNIT!
:D

it probably wont contain the same amount of power as construct has, in terms of DX9 stuff, fast engine, ect. i havent seen a gamemaker which comes close to the speed of construct, and i dont think i will for a while.

black crystal is kind of a silly name for a gamemaker, it doesnt even having anything to do with creation.

it looks extremely new so i can't really say anything else about it.

Because they might have a good pice of code which could be used in cons for example. There can be many ressons why.

It's in C#, so it can't be reused.

What would be the aim of trying to convert what very little C# oriented GUI code they have into C++? :P

So their site is largely empty, they've barely got any code, and their lead guy just quit. They're gonna have to try harder than that to be a serious player.

I'm pretty skeptical of this whole project, their site navigation looks like it was directly lifted from scirra.com and their project seems very similar in spirit to Construct. What's the story here? Are these ex-Constructors? :P
