If you aren't familiar with Draknek, he is maintaining the current FlashPunk codebase. FlashPunk is the framework that was used for TRHM and last week's featured game by Matzerath:

  • Leave Cthulhu Alone
    Leave Cthulhu Alone by Matzerath

    All Cthulhu wants is to return to our universe and enslave us! Can't people leave him be?

We've been maintaining a collection of games made with FlashPunk so check it out!

Clickteam is hosting a Games Factory 2 Holiday Competition! You don't need to be a programmer to make games with TGF2 so everyone is welcome. We maintain a collection of TGF2 games as well, for examples of what is possible.


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

But, if you aren't dedicated enough to learn how to program, are you dedicated enough to make a game?

Some peoples' brains just work in more visual ways, so alternative tools work!

If it requires drawing, then it's still no good for me, I'm a terrible artist.

Thx for the heads-up Tom,
It's remarkable how most people are graphically oriented while others think more abstract and favor programming to come up with something visually stunning. Why can' t it be both? I mean, there sure are artists that have programming skills and vice versa but it seems to be the general situation to be good in either, not both. I still say it's evidence our DNA's been tampered with by aliens.

SUP BUDDY.

The current source code is rather stable right now, and Draknek (the author of this game) is maintaining it. Mostly just lots of little bug fixes and feature requests, which is great because I'm a bit too distracted with several projects (including the next major version of FlashPunk) to keep up with it, and he does a fine job!

Games Factory 2 competition is a tight idea! Though I prefer Construct, looking forward to the results of that.

Don't worry MindChamber. We all know you're still upset that I called you out on your very poor judging skills so I didn't expect you to donate. I've given up on wanting donations for the book. I'll have plenty of time when the holiday season is over and hours are cut at work. I just wanted to see if anyone had any heart or give in them.

Or maybe simply having a completely vague idea or concept does not warrant receiving free money.
