Free Game Maker New Webpage And Upcoming Game!

February 2, 2013 in Free Game Maker News by Mike

As I’m sure you can see I’m working on a new webpage for Platinum Arts Sandbox Free Game Maker. Unlike the old one this one should fly like the wind and even though it doesn’t look too pretty right now don’t worry I still have a lot of work to do on it. If you come across something that isn’t working correctly please let me know! Also of course feel free to share your thoughts and opinions in the forum. I have done a lot of tweaking on this new page to make sure it runs as fast as possible and I’m trying to keep it clean but look nice as well. I have some more tweaks to do but it already has a 92/100 speed rating according to google which is really good!!

Also here is a sneak peak at an upcoming project from the team, I will be posting more about this soon!
D. The Atom Shifter is an action RPG where you literally have the ability to customize your character at will! The human race is being annihilated and to try to prevent complete obliteration a great wizard created D. who can shift his atoms at will and absorb the atoms of other beings into himself to give himself even more power. The game is going to be a single player action RPG with swords, magic and horror elements! D. will be a horror themed action rpg game for Windows and Linux!

Lots more art and information is on the way! Also we have a trailer we’re working on that we’re quite excited about and we can’t wait to show you all of the cool stuff we’ve been working on! Also feel free to join our newsletter at our webpage Dactionrpg.com and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
Take care and have an awesome day!
