Returning user, basic no longer free?

BluSpyderBluSpyder Posts: 129Member

I've been busy that past couple years, military life... I've come back here to find the original basic Gamesalad is no longer free? I loved being able to mess around and create stuff at my busy schedule's expense. Learning, trying things out etc.. Always seen the Pro version option for purchase, but was content with what I used basic for. Now there are monthly charges for even basic? What happened here? That was the golden draw-in for us older Gamesalad users...Not to mention that's also a hefty monthly charge for the basic version...Guess I need to resort to my studies and learn actual coding instead of the fun way with Gamesalad.

    Yep, things have changed. The company couldn't support itself on all of the free users. So they are charging for the software they developed. It's not as easy for customers to afford but I can understand why they had to go that way.

    @tatiang Interesting, and understandable. Thanks.

    Unity is introducing visual scripting later this year, so keep your eyes peeled for that! Free and 3D, too (or 2D if you want).

    Also, learning to code just enough to do very basic and physics-based games in Unity is surprisingly quick and easy! And once you do, the speed of development is actually quicker than with GameSalad! Go figure! If only I'd known a couple years back...
