Category talk:Game Builder
For programs I/people remember, but can't find.
Kinda similar to World Builder, but on Windows 3.1
I'd gotten it from a magazine I also can't remember the name of. Barely a magazine, really ; I folded piece of cardboard ~A3, with a demo CD. Each issue would have a genre-based theme, and would be stuffed with mostly applicable shareware. I had an RPG one, and an adventure game one.
By 'similar to World Builder, I mean in the sense that it was an adventure game making tool with multiple windows (but it was colour), and replaced World Builder's Macyness with a Windowsynes ; (explain)
I remember some of the items, like a yellow key, and also remember there was at least one example game included
