GREAT FLASH GAME MAKER - STENCYL
I am pretty sure the community in general has known about Stencyl for a while, of course it probably did not receive the attention most other game engines did here. I think it is pretty neat, I just might use it one day to make a puzzle game or something.
Anyone have any more in-depth info on this? Love to read a brief about it that isn't sales copy.
It's a development tool for flash and iDevice that is predominately focused on physics and platformer games. I personally see it as more of a project manager, mapper and coding utility all wrapped up into one considering that the creation of logic in can either be done with a block based drag and drop system or actual code even both simultaneously if you're really desperate. It has a built-in community resource center that has a lot of useful things. Overall it's a pretty good program that can be used for a lot of stuff with some templates to help start you on a few things like an RPG or a platformer and it's probably really useful if you want to learn Actionscript or Obj-C due to it's functions there.
