UNITY is a game creation program for creating 3D games and have recently recieved a liscense from Nintendo for their users to create their own wii games. UNITY CEO David Helgason says: "This is the product combo of our dreams, Ever since it was announced we've longed to give game developers access to the sheer creative fun of the Nintendo Wii."
Ever wanted to create that one game you've always dreamed about, but are a really bad coder and/or don't want to learn? Then you need Stencyl, the easiest 2D tile-based game creater ever (plus it's free!). It uses point click programming with easy to set up triggers. I like it because now I don't need to keep posting on the GMC for help on my games made with Game Maker. The best part about it (mainly because we are all artists) is that the only part that really requires any skill is your graphics. So far, Stencyl has "kits" for you to make platformers, action, action rpg's, strategy and shooter. More kits will arrive.
