Hey everyone! I wanted to make a little post to get some feedback and suggestions on a project that I've been working on with another game developer for the past two months. It's an html5 powered game editor called Craftyy, and you can check it out here
(though it is still in it's alpha stage.
It currently allows you to create games using an easy method of dragging action stickers onto artwork, and while there are a limited number of resources currently, we have been able to make some interesting stuff like pinball
, a music game
and the start of a skating/line rider game
Some images of the editor~
I was hoping to get some discussion going on what actual game developers like yourself would want to see in this kind of tool. We've been pretty focused on making the UI and experience easier to understand than most game making programs. Does this take too much freedom away from you? And if so, what about those kind of programs would you prefer to see in our web app?
Oh! And if you do play around with it, post your creations too -- just hit the safe in the bottom right and it'll generate a new url for you.
A lot of the fun has been remixing other people's games and building upon them. Thanks for the help!
