Have you ever wanted to create your own video game? Then Stardock "The Video Game Machine", a sandbox game where players can create, play, and share video games of their very own, is for you.
The Video Game Machine includes a host of pre-made games that players can edit or they can choose with a blank slate and start creating.
Some of the game genres included are side-scrollers, shoot 'em up, and adventure games. The genre choice takes care of the game's basic game mechanics. From there, the player sets up the game's rules and selects the characters they want in their game such as knights, superheroes, ninjas, cats, and more.
"If you play games, odds are you've wanted to try making one too," said Scott Tykoski, lead designer. "The Video Game Machine is a game that lets you pick a genre, choose some rules, and unleash your inner game designer."
Players can share their games online as well as download games made by others to try them out.
An alpha for The Video Game Machine begins on May 29th and will include the first two genres: Platformer and Adventure. Even those who aren't interested in making games will find a host of classic-style games available to play.
The Video Game Machine is $9.99. To pre-order and gain alpha access, visit - www.TheVGM.com
