Where does Gamesalad stand?
I am not asking this to berate Gamesalad. I am asking to get a feel for where Gamesalad stands, compared to the other Game making engines on the market.
I have been researching google searches and youtube traffic to get an idea where gamesalad stands in the this industry. In the multitude of youtube videos that ask the question like. " Top 5 Game engines" "Top 10 Engines to make a game" etc etc.. None of them mention Gamesalad. Gamesalad isnt even mention in a "honorable mention catagory. There was one video alone, that when narrating and discussing all the engines out there to choose from. There was a scene showing 20-30 engines and their logos. In that brief moment, gamesalad was one of those 30 logos. Other than that... no other mention of gamesalad.
I published a few apps a decade ago with gamesalad. I loved it. The only thing that kept me going was TShirtBooths videos. The way he described and tutored you was easy to understand. But as time went on it truly felt like Gamesalad became stagnant in features and creating quality of life changes. Every few years I would come back to the forums and the site. Research and try to find what new things have come along and changed in the game that would make me want to dive back in. I went to the gamesalad youtube page. And the last video was over a year ago. Then 3 yrs, then 6yrs. No ones talking about Gamesalad and new features and new tutorials. If I was asked how gamesalad is doing today. I would peak in and say...... dead or on life support. I dont say that about its internals or finances or policy. I say it only based on viewer actions, users actions in the forums. So this is why i ask....... Where does Gamesalad stand when compared to it the other engines available.
When I now go and watch Construct 3 or Game Maker Studio 2s videos. They continue to go go go. New features, new tutorials and tons of recent activities. Again Im not berating Gamesalad. SO please no responses like " well go play with Construct 3 and GMS2. No body asked you here" Im not trying to stir up that kind of talk.
I simply want to know whats happening in Gamesalad? What are some realistic goals that are coming to fruit soon? I would love to see Life breathed back into GS. Is that in the cards?
Unreal --Unity--Game Maker Studio- Construct 3--Godot--???????---????????----???????----????????----????????
