Design Your Own Games!

Tuesday, May 31st, 2005

Back in the 1980s a friend with a Sinclair ZX Spectrum got hold of a program called HURG (can’t remember what it stood for) which essentially allowed you to create your own platform games.
A few of us had great plans for transforming the games industry and tried to come up with the next big thing.

Obviously it didn’t work… (well, we were only 13 – I mean, as if someone so young could ever make it big in the tech industry…)

But I’ve just bought a copy of Power game Factory which is a cool-looking (and cheap!) program for the Mac that lets you produce side-scrolling games. I’m certainly not imagining that I’m going to produce anything that anyone else will want to play, let alone buy, but I’m looking forwards to producing something. Maybe a game in which designers shoot clients, (or ordinary people shoot demon designers!)

Anyway, looks cool – check it out.
