Have you seen "Game Develop"?

I stumbled upon this freeware game creator called "Game Develop", that appears to have recently been translated from French to English. I was surprised how complete the program appears, and made by only one developer AFAIK. It has a WYSIWYG editor and uses an events similar to Construct and is able to make games for Windows and Linux.

It's no replacement for Construct though, and it's ease of use and fast workflow. Yes, I'm biased. :D

Interesting, looks fairly similar to Construct in some ways. Can't get my head round the UI though.

Nicest of all is that Construct is the source of inspiration for GD, according to the developer:

"I plan to add physic capabilities to GD, but I need to add a system similar to the behaviours of Construct before doing this. :)"

It's like re-learning everything from scratch, it's nice tough, this means we're getting into a new age of WYSIWYG game development, nevertheless I will stick to Construct for now.

Although I kind of like the thought that Construct already has a state where it is seen as a shining example, it is a shame that somebody who obviously has talent and skill prefers to re-invent the wheel instead of joining the scirra team to further push Construct :wink:
