Game Design Software Announced for Macintosh
8:37 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Sawblade Software has announced Power Game Factory, an innovative new tool for creating side scrolling action games for the Macintosh. Power Game Factory is capable of producing games similar to many of the console video games of the past two decades, but with superior graphics and sounds. The tool requires no programming.

Here's more from the press release:

Power Game Factory applies the latest technologies to the proven 2D platformer game genre; games made with the software can combine high resolution sprite graphics and realistic physics with authentic old school gameplay, making Power Game Factory the ideal system for constructing compelling, truly playable Macintosh games.

Power Game Factory is a robust game development environment: game projects may be extremely simple, or they may feature hundreds of huge levels and hours of gameplay. There are no restraints placed on the number of levels, characters, weapons, and items in a game. Completed game projects can be compiled into self-contained, fully functional applications which users may sell without royalties or limitations of any kind.

Due to arrive in the Spring of 2005, Power Game Factory will ship on a CD bundled with the Greenland Invasion game project, which demonstrates the capabilities of the software. An included 6-step beginner's tutorial will help users get started with their own game design projects, while an exhaustive 190 page user's manual provides a complete reference. Also included are collections of extra level background graphics and game music. In addition, customers will enjoy free Sawblade Software stickers and a Sawblade Software product order form offering discounts on merchandise.
