Normally developing a game when you’re new to the programming language and software takes weeks and sometimes even months of intensive study in order to create a single game. Once you’re done, most of the time you’ll know how to edit very basic things like colors and sprites, but often the rest will be too difficult to understand.
With Buildbox you could literally have your game on the App Store and Google Play within a series of weeks. Something that a year ago would have been considered impossible, and with anything other than Buildbox, still is…
The user interface – that’s pretty much all Buildbox is – is extremely easy to navigate and understand, making it easy for anyone – even those with no prior game development experience – to easily create high end games within a week or so.
Buildbox gives free 30-day trial of the software which included a series of emails to help train you and guide you through the process. They called it their Buildbox 30 Day Game Challenge. So just sign up and ready to go.
