Is there a chance to get GameSalad pro version as a trail for few days?

    Unfortunately, if they offered that option many people wouldn't need to ever buy Pro. I guess they could offer a Pro version trial that still inserted ads (the reason most people buy Pro is to remove them and a trial would let them do that) or didn't let you publish with any of the Pro-only behaviours in use.

    I guess it could be done, but I highly doubt the time they'd have to invest would be worth it. The free version is essentially the Pro trial.

    Most of the pro features relate to ad network implementation and such. Except for the multiplayer options and URL server stuff it's the same as the free version.

    It would be nice if GS gives a trail PRO version (Both iOS and android) for at least 10-15 days..so that so many can clear their confusions...without wasting time asking suggestions and thinking for months to buy PRO or NOT...

    There are no confusions. All the info you need is already available and very easy to find.

    I never really understand why there's any confusion.

    Do you want the extra features? (You'll know if you do if your game has reached that point...) Buy pro.

    Do you want to remove ads? Buy pro.

    Do you want to publish to Android? Buy pro.

    The free version really does give you a VERY good idea of what the software can do. The only reason to want a trial, realistically, would be to finish your game, start your trial and publish your game during the trial, avoiding the need to buy Pro at all.

    we can publish paid game in iOS free version itself ...

    Yes, but it contains forced ads that benefit GameSalad. That's one of their revenue streams. It's hard to justify charging for a game when it will also contain ads that can't be removed.

    I would actually love to see some statistics on that. :)

    Its actually just a single forced ad on startup isnt it? Not massive ad plastered the ought your game. So in all honesty publishing a paid game with the free version is not that big of a deal for starting out.

    Now if you are looking to make a business of this and that startup ad is a major deal breaker for you. $299 is an insanely low startup cost for any business.

    To answer your first question though no I don't think GS would or should make a few day trial of a full pro version. The reason is you can litterally do everything but multiplayer, ads and in app purchases without pro. You can build your entire game in the free version and when your ready for pro features but it and drop them in. But you most certainly don't need it to make a gave that you can sell on iTunes.

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)
