For those with iPads...
« on: August 12, 2013, 01:43:46 PM »
There is a game creation app out on the store called Gamepress.  If anyone here has it or has heard of it, do you think it is possbible to make a RL game using it?

It looks like it handles a bit like construct.

So yes you should be able to make a roguelike with it.

Cool, that's probably a bit beyond my current capabilities with the program at the moment, but I did make a game where you are Rainbow Dash and you have to dodge shooting stars while collecting crystals.   ;D

But I will do what I can to learn more and maybe I'll be able to make a RL with it some day.

Have you tried some real coding? Try some C#, it's "quite easy" and efficient and extremely fast to develop.
I also felt tempted learning to use an RPG Maker like program but then I realize that such knowledge would be strictly bound to it. If for some reason that RPG making platform would stop being developed, all the time and knowledge I had put into it would go out the window. I'm really glad I went coding. Now I can do much more then just setting up parameters and using script language. You should think about it.

Learning to code is hard and unrewarding at early practice but it really pays off after you reach a decent level of it.
