Current News

Recently I've been involved in a project that aims to make games design accessible for all, and universal across different mobile & desktop devices. The tool aims to provide a platform for artists like myself to easily showcase their artwork, models and animations. It's all based on super easy drag and drop interface, so you don't need to be a programmer to create and publish games for real players, in real time. Check out Playir.com for more details on this amazing project.
