Been a addict of games for a while actually, about ten years or so.
Same as most here I guess, startet out with the NES (Still playing on my SNES, games like : Secret of evermore, Secret of mana)
I've done a few games with Gm-PRO, Visual basic, I have even done some C# coding with Sharpdevelop, but desided to take a break.
Now I'm back, and was on the look-out for something "new" or at least diffirent.
Searched/googled for open source game creator, and Scirra came up.
Of course, I had to check it out before adding myself as a member.
So youtube scirra, and that lovely Scirra Showreel < [url:23nwumfu]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3VYSQZ28FI[/url:23nwumfu] > came forth. *Really impressive video*
Watching the whole thing, some other demo's, I got entreeged of this program.
Right now, I'm at work (of course) so haven't had the time to test Scirra out.
But from what I've been reading from the different users on different forums, it beats 'game maker pro 8.0'.
The dream is to create a lowbrand-rpg game that one can relate to something like:
Secret of evermore
(Flash game called 'Sonny' which you can find on armorgames.com).
Or more of a tower-defense kind of game style.
Making something like "Heroes of might and magic 3" would also be epic ^^
But here I am, dreaming away, when I should be working.
Not much more to say really.
