Hi, All. This is my first year teaching Game Design. This looks pretty cool. What is your opinion of this?

    it’s a really good format for beginners to learn logic.

    I've been using GameSalad for years and have taught Game Design with it several times with students ages 8-13. It's a great tool that allows students to have nearly immediate tangible results and relies on a strong understanding of programming logic without requiring (as) strict syntax. In ~10 hours, students were able to make playable games from scratch that they were proud of. However, when the educational support for GameSalad was first added, I felt it was lacking. I don't actually know the current state of the educational curriculum for GameSalad but I imagine (and hope) it's much stronger now.

    It is great for making 2d games, and I have seen some 2.5d examples as well I think, but those are probably harder to make.
