GameSalad allows developers at all levels – from aspiring to professional – to create hit mobile games across all the major platforms without ever having to write a line of code. GameSalad’s community of developers around the world have created hundreds of thousands of original games to date – including three number one titles and more than 80 games in the top 100. GameSalad is the largest third-party development tool for creating games on Apple’s mobile platform and is responsible for over 15 percent of all games published to the App Store on the average month with over 30,000 GameSalad games published to the Apple App Store.
Anyone who has ever dreamed of creating their own game can use the GameSalad Creator platform, a free, easy-to-use, drag and drop tool, to create games for iPhone, Android iPad, HTML5 and Windows Phone. For the hobbyist creator, GameSalad does not require any programming knowledge. They can use the drag-and-drop user interface to add elements to their design, from artwork to sound, and rapidly publish their game. For professional developers, GameSalad allows them to bring their work to life in hours and days instead of weeks and months. They can rapidly prototype their game concepts, allowing for faster iteration cycles and more player feedback, which results in higher quality games and faster time to market.
GameSalad is continuing to offer new features and tools to help developers build successful games and reach more consumers. GameSalad continues to expand the capabilities of its toolset, enabling experienced developers to build more sophisticated games that can be effectively monetized on all the major mobile platforms.
