The Games factory 2 Continued
The Games Factory 2 is a great program for introducing people to some of the basic theory of making a video game. You don't have to do any programming at all. Most of it is drag and drop and then you make check box decisions on what you want to happen. It is great for younger game makers or for people that just want to explore some creativity. The sky pretty much is the limit and one of the best things about it is that it is very easy to import pictures you take or drawings you make - right into the game! I show this in this short tutorial where I import a picture of myself as the player.
Watch the video here and I am currently working on more tutorials. I also have page with more information about The Games Factory and the links to where you can download the trial version Here
