Coldstone Game Engine Released
8:13 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Ambrosia Software today announced the release of the Coldstone game engine that brings professional-quality game building tools to the masses. With this unique tool, non-programmers can produce polished, stand-alone games that run on Mac OS, Mac OS X, and even Windows. Here's a snippet from Ambrosia's press release:

Imagine a set of powerful yet easy to use tools for constructing your very own stand-alone game... no rules... a completely blank sheet of paper on which to pen your masterpiece, your imagination is the only limit on what you can create. This is exactly what Beenox, in conjunction with Ambrosia Software, Inc., is bringing to you with the Coldstone game engine. Want to see for yourself? You can download a demo version and get started right now!

Unlike generic media creation tools such as RealBASIC, Director, or Flash, Coldstone is specifically geared towards making games. By focusing on game creation, Coldstone streamlines the design process, creating polished, stand-alone games that run natively on Mac OS, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows. Create once, and distribute on whatever platform you choose, with all of the technical details taken care of for you.

So what kind of games can you create with Coldstone? We're waiting for you to answer that question. Coldstone is flexible enough to allow you to create games we've never even dreamed of, and we can't wait to see what springs from your imagination.

If you've ever wanted to create a game but never learned how to program, then here's your chance. Like Ambrosia says, all you need is a little imagination. Be sure to head over to Ambrosia's web site to get more information on Coldstone.
