Game Guru is an easy-to-use game maker that requires no coding and gives budding game designers a tool to make their first game designs in just minutes. Developed by The Game Creators, Game Guru was born out of a passion to create a simple, powerful and affordable game maker that produces high quality results in all aspects of game development.
As the trailer points out, users will be able to craft their own first-person shooters, fantasy adventures, creepy horror games, and much more. The main components of Game Guru include a 3D game engine, editor and a development road map, each with an extensive list of features.
The 3D game engine and editor gives users the power of a terrain editor, rendering engine, infinite vegetation system, cascading shadow and ambient occlusion mapping, along with a bird’s eye view editing system with a basic drag-and-drop style. It also allows for the creation of realistic characters, fully animated weapons, and a multi-player game creation tool that supports up to 8 players. Game Guru even comes with ready-made games including modern-day warfare, horror, medieval fantasy, and child-friendly games. As a bonus, users will be able to save single player games as exe files and distribute their games royalty free.
The development road map promises the continued enhancement of Game Guru’s elements, with several updates planned in 2015:
- A character creator that lets users add personalized characters to their games
- A particle system that includes effects like fire, sparks, and smoke
- Virtual Reality (VR) support
- Vehicles, roads, and transportation
- Real-time group editing that makes game creation a collaborative experience
- Player inventory and crafting mechanics which expand the possibilities of users’ games
Game Guru will make its debut at GDC (Game Developers Conference) and officially release via Steam on March 2 for $19.99 USD.
