Nokia Yamake for N-Gage

Nokia today said it had developed a new game for its N-Gage game platform that will let users create their own titles. Yamake is a game of its own but centers around creating mini-games using the player's own content: audio, photos, and videos captured or stored on the phone can be used to build puzzles. The resulting creations can be shared through the N-Gage Arena and are linked to a comment system that lets fellow Yamake players review the games as well as offer suggestions to creators.

The cellphone designer has not said when the game will be available but is currently running N-Gage in a testing stage through its First Access program, which is currently accessible through a handful of Nokia smartphones such as the N81. Devices such as the N96 will also support N-Gage when they launch later this year.
