IG Maker is the latest in its series of popular, easy to use game creation tools. It continues a long-running series of game-making applications that have sold more than 2 million copies worldwide to date. Following the success of Enterbrain's game creation tools RPG Maker XP and RPG Maker VX, which have an extensive Western fanbase, IG Maker extends the company's easy to use, click and drop game creation software into multiple new game genres, with three major styles of game supported and Windows executable, XNA (Xbox 360) and Flash export possible. Without need for programming or complex graphic design skills, this allows users to create classic 2D, top-down action RPG games, side-scrolling platform action games, and even classic vertically and horizontally scrolling 2D shooters, with fun-to-play example games included to analyze and dissect. Using the simple-to-adjust interface, with flow-based graphical representations of levels, title screens, and more, it's straightforward for even novices to create fully-featured games. In particular, the tool features a robust animation editor, tile-based level layout and the ability to easily put together a multitude of different gameplay combinations. IG Maker users can even combine multiple genre types in one game, with hybrids such as a top-down 'overworld', with platform game levels when players enter buildings or dungeons. The result can be exported to a Windows executable-compatible format for online distribution, with additional possibilities including XNA Framework export (potentially enabling upload onto Xbox Live Indie Games), and Flash export. You can download sample games as well as additional graphics and audio from the developer's Web site.
