GameSalad - Game Creation
GameSalad is the advanced game creation tool for non-programmers. With GameSalad, game makers of all levels can bring their ideas to life without programming a single line of code. Build games visually using a drag-and-drop interface along with a robust behavior system. Publish your games quickly and easy to the iPhone, iPod Touch, Mac Desktop, and the Web.
Right now focused on 2D games, so people can make platformers, racers, Breakout, classic arcade games... GameSalad was used at the University of Texas for a game development class. During those four weeks, students were able to build Zelda clones, shooters. One of the first games was, ironically, Pong Basketball: you can move the paddles everywhere, and try to bounce the ball into the other player's basket. Most of the fun games came from film majors!
It has a layered interface. Features that are easier to understand are more accessible and visible. Features for more advanced users are hidden, but not that far away. A scripting engine mixes composition, behavior, logic, and expressions. If you're not a programmer, it's hard to tell which is which. With a layered interface, a larger range of people can use it in different ways.
