Streamlines game development
GameSalad has announced it will soon launch an iPhone publishing system for titles produced with its game creation utility. The tool is free, and meant for non-programmers, as it is capable of implementing AI and other gameplay components using drag-and-drop construction. The software features project, scene and actor editors, and can uproot asset formats like Ogg Vorbis, PNG and JPG.
Both web and iPhone titles can be produced. When the new publishing system goes live, designers using GameSalad Creator will be able to submit titles straight to the iTunes App Store. The program requires an Intel Mac running Mac OS X 10.5 or higher, and 1GB of RAM. Though the software is free, it does require registration.
