The numbers are staggering — and only seem to get bigger. The global video game market is worth $90 billion this year, an increase of almost 15 percent over totals just three years ago. The growth rate rises to almost 25 percent over that timespan when you focus solely on mobile gaming. In fact, the average game priced at $10 on Stream can generate about $10,000 in revenue in its first month.
The appetite for games is voracious and never satisfied. For those with loads of ideas, but possibly low on technical expertise to get a video game off the ground, the training in The Complete AppGameKit Game Creator Bundle ($29.99, 84 percent off) can help.
For the past decade, AppGameKit has become one of the most popular platforms for both first time and advanced game developers to assemble cool games quickly for deployment on a wide variety of available platforms. This three-course, asset-heavy collection explores how AppGameKit works, presents a roadmap for getting a game started and offers a healthy stockpile of assets to help give your game some added heft to compete with multi-million dollar releases from the world’s biggest game makers.
AppGameKit: Easy Game Development Platform is your introduction to the AppGameKit environment, providing the framework for building games, even if you have little to no direct coding experience. This training examines what it takes to get started and how to generate games for all platforms from Android and iOS to Windows, Linux or even the Raspberry Pi.
Part of AppGameKit’s appeal is its ease of use — and with AppGameKit: Visual Editor, users learn to easily design game scenes with the streamlined drag and drop tool that also allows users to position, scale and rotate objects in your builds to meet any need. They’ll also get the complete 411 on virtual reality gaming with AppGameKit VR, including how to weave in leap motion-support, headset detection and more to adapt your game into a full-scale VR experience.
In addition to the training, users also get valuable insight (and full source code) in a pair of game packs with 28 games, an asset pack with more than 500 royalty-free sprites and sprite construction sets to create over 2,000 unique sprites of your own; and a 3D asset pack with more than 250 low-polygon 3D models.
All this AppGameKit training and support would usually cost about $200, but with the current deal, it’s all available now for only $29.99.
