Sawblade Releases Power Game Factory Demo
11:20 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Sawblade Software has released a free demo of Power Game Factory, an innovative new game authoring tool for Mac OS X. Power Game Factory lets users produce graphically rich, action-packed side scrolling games, and no programming is required.

Here's more from the press release:

Harnessing old-school gameplay, hardware accelerated graphics, and realistic physics, Power Game Factory is the ideal system with which experienced artists and designers may construct sophisticated, compelling Macintosh games.

But Power Game Factory will likely seem even more exciting to those to whom computer game design was never before an option. As Sawblade Software founder Jesse Simko points out, "There are kids in every middle school who are creative enough to design games. Power Game Factory lets them put their ideas into motion, and it's simple enough so that they can finish the job. The focus is on implementing content; it's not about programming, scripting, and debugging."

Power Game Factory's content-driven approach to game design should appeal to anyone who aspires to release the next great Mac game. Luckily, completed game projects can be compiled into self-contained, fully functional applications which may be sold without royalties or limitations of any kind.

The Power Game Factory demo offers the same comprehensive feature set and intuitive interface found in the full version of Power Game Factory, but game projects designed with the demo are limited to a single level.

Available now for US$44.00, Power Game Factory ships on a CD bundled with the Greenland Invasion game project, a ridiculously entertaining mini-game that demonstrates the advanced 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 with Power Game Factory 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.
