Building gaming apps is proving to be where the opportunities lie, especially when you think of big players like Angry Birds or Doodle Jump. We are already seeing some local NZ developers go big with their gaming apps, In To The Dead, Bloons TD 5 and Bee Leader to name a few. Building games does require skill and, in most cases, is a little bit of a craft - it comes down to creative minds and talented people. But people who are craftier still, have taken their skills and created platforms that make it easier for YOU to build games. This means you can focus less on the HOW and more on the WHAT! Which comes back to the original title of this post – we are seeing a range of different gaming engines become available for developers to use:

Now, there is a whole bunch of resources available to build games, and most of them are available on the Construct 2 Page. There is no reason not to give it a go - especially when you see what can be done in a short amount of time. As part of this, we are also running several short training events to get you fired up and building your own game.
