Video Updates for MAGE aka Make A Game Experience!

Welcome to hopefully the first of may updates for MAGE aka Make A Game Experience, formerly known as D.’s Sandbox. I hope to do a lot more videos in the future and we have a trailer for MAGE in the works. There are a lot of updates happening at MakeAGameFree.com including the release of a beta of MAGE soon, plus resources for coding, modeling, game design, etc. The goal is to turn MAGE not only into an easy way for people to create games, universes, and stories, but to also make it a learning tool so that users can learn the different facets of Game Design and become even better Game Designers.

There is now a MAGE Newsletter for MAGE so if you’d like to receive updates please sign up!

Please feel free to post your feedback either on youtube or in the forums.
