I was invited into the beta test for an upcoming game design program called Atmosphir. Wow! The guys at Minor Studios have put together a very user-friendly game creation package. The presentation is extremely smooth and creating your own levels is really simple. The user interface is very intuitive and easy to learn. The complexity of what you create is pretty scalable too.
I’d love to see the addition of the ability to add dialogue or text allowing the player to make choices. Then, we’d have a story! I’d also love to get this into the hands of students to see what they might create and to observe their decision-making processes while they create.
Looking forward to watching this game develop!
