Introducing Graphene SDK...
As you may know, we’ve been hard at work on our new product (cleverly codenamed “Cross Platform Creator”) for some time. We’ve talked about it in hushed tones and whispers for months and months now. We’re still not ready to spill all the beans about the product just yet, but I’m happy to announce some initial details today. And to invite you to sign up for our invite-only beta starting early next year.
This new product is called Graphene SDK. You can sign up for the beta here: http://graphenesdk.com
What is it?
Graphene is like GameSalad on steroids. We took everything we learned building GameSalad Creator and blended it with over 60 years of professional game development experience to create a fantastic tool for building games. It’s got a new engine, new interface, powerful coding features, native plugin support, and more! The new engine is the same one used to build games like Draw Something, Udder Destruction, and Jangle. It’s fast, flexible, and battle-tested.
What does this mean for GameSalad Creator?
Graphene SDK and GameSalad Creator are two different products serving different needs. GameSalad Creator will continue to exist as a separate product line -- we’ll continue to add new features, maintain OS compatibility, provide support, etc.
When can I get access to Graphene?
We’re currently in closed alpha testing with a small group of power users from the GameSalad community. We’ll keep letting more folks into the test group as the product matures. To be considered for an early access slot, you’ll need to register at http://graphenesdk.com. Once you sign up, you’ll notice that you can improve your priority slot by successfully inviting others to join the beta group. Depending on how the testing goes, we plan on opening up the beta group to an increasingly wider audience over the coming months.
I’ve got a whole bunch of questions you haven’t answer yet, when are you going to provide more info?
We’ll continue to release more info about Graphene to folks that register for the beta. So head on over to http://graphenesdk.com to sign up for beta access and we’ll keep you apprised of all the developments!
Have a safe holiday and a Happy New Year!
