    Welcome and best of luck, I'm sure many will gladly help you here.
    Just to add.. Keep in mind that the app stores are like battlefields these days, so don't expect to make a living out of making games from day one, it's an ongoing process that requires hard work and dedication.

    Welcome, @‌squishee

    Make sure to read the cookbook, and take a look at the literally hundreds of youtube videos on using GameSalad, they will come in handy. And there are plenty of us old timers here, so don't feel alone! Isn't that right @quantumsheep @tatiang @jonmulcahy @gyroscope and everyone else I forgot?

    I have no friends. I'm a loser that makes video games all day. Will you be my friend?

    Hi Simon, welcome and good luck!

    And I'm in the 'old timer' crowd as well I'm afraid.... ;)

    Edit: Maybe we should start an 'old timers club'!

    I am, of course, timeless :)

    Welcome, @squishee :)

    I would caution against relying on making games as your main source of income. Sure you can do it, but it's really bloody hard.

    My main advice would be the same as @Pom 's and I'd add: have fun creating stuff, and if you get some cash too then awesome :)

    Best of luck to you!

    QS =D
