[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Makslane Rodrigues has released Game Editor, a free, open source game creation application that lets you design and create exciting, interactive games for the Windows, Windows Mobile, iPad, iPhone, Mac OS X, Linux, Pocket PC, and Android markets. With no investment or royalty fees, Game Editor lets you create games for family and friends, as well as commercial games that you can sell. In addition, Game Editor is an easy way for businesses to participate in the gamification trend that lets you create and distribute games that build brand loyalty for your company.

Game Editor lets you design and develop 2D arcade, puzzle, board, role-playing, shoot-em-up, jump and run, and side-scroller games. The simple, intuitive interface lets beginners design and create games that are fun and exciting. A power scripting language is included. Because Game Editor is distributed under the GPL v3 license, advanced programmers can modify the game creation source code and create games with unique features.

Game Editor is a fun way to learn about computer programming. The company's online forums include a wide range of game design information to get you started. It's easy to create games for all of the popular desktop/laptop and phone/tablet platforms. Game Editor lets you see and change the source code of the game creation software, giving you insights into C/C++ programming.

Game Editor lets you quickly prototype your new game, so there's little danger that you'll spend long hours developing a game that isn't fun to play. Create a game theme, and place your game actors on the Game Editor screen. You determine what happens whenever a player moves the mouse, clicks an object, or presses a key. By defining simple or complex paths, you determine the movement of all of the actors on the game screen.

In addition to moving objects, you can play sounds and run animations. You're in complete control of the look and feel of your game. After you've created your game, with a few mouse clicks you can create new game versions that will run on any of the supported platforms.

Whether you're a businessperson who wants to create a multi-platform game to promote your business, a student who wants to create games to share with friends and family, or a programmer who wants to create and market a line of software games, Game Editor has the tools that you need.

Game Editor runs under Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. For more information, visit
