Hey Guys, my name is Sho.
I'm an artist, photographer and web designer.
I've always had a passion for animation and game design.
Just recently realising the potential of the time period we're living in it seems suddenly everything is coming together.
In the past I'd spend ages researching and/or learning software only to stumble at a price tag on software or find that gap in knowledge when trying to learn software/technique now it all seems to have fallen into place.
Having had the Adobe CC for a while now and getting some free time to work on personal projects I turned back to the idea of game making and got stuck back into flash - digging out old files to rinse of code I cobbled something together and went to package it as an app to find it needed to be AS 3 not 2.
Well, I'm not a great programmer or owt, used to just hacking up snippets and bodging the best I can when I do JS or PHP for myself so I was off on youtube researching the AS3 stuff when I came across this.
It's been about six weeks of pure joy.
This seems like the perfect tool for my needs.
It's also very intuative in a way where just plain code would maybe stump me this seems to flow better from my own vague idea of how 'stuff' should work. When I do get stumped the manual, forum or tutorials generally have the answer.
Fantastic. This is where Stencyl fell short for me as when I got that - [ no idea what it's like now and I don't care ] I just couldn't get any answers. It seemed there where no videos or documentation to ease you up the learning curve.
With this I've been making prototypes and testing game mechanics every day since purchase.
A purchase I was happy to make - what a fantastic price!
I hope I make some money out of this just to through some more at the awesome guys who came up with this software!
Good Job Guys (^_^)
Hope to have some demos out soon for you guys to check out so in the mean time, thanks to the guys at C2, everyone who has written a tut' or posted on youtube and all the guys still living to make great games!
