Will the Creator be removed once the online tool is ready?
I was having a chat with old members here and the scenario is many have left GS community because the GS team isn't that active anymore and they are focusing on online education and thus the developers might get left in the soup.
The plan as they told me is that once the online tool is ready, the creator will be discontinued.
I would suggest keeping the creator even if it is outdated.
It is a very powerful tool compared to engines like Unity with visual scripting right now. Unity is coming up with Visual scritping but it is still far away. This is the reason I chose GS over Unity.
Even outdated and lacking many features it is very powerful and a lot of games can be created with it.
With online creator, we will be forced to work on html5 games which are not graphics intensive. If I have to use retro style low-end graphics, I can use Construct 3 and Stencyl.
With creator I have and I am working on games with very high graphics which can be optimized for iPad Retina Display.
Even if the GS team is lacking and has fewer programmers to work on, keep the creator Alive for Mac and PC.
What is other members opinion here?
