I was a beta tester on this and it does just what it says, it's crazy the amount of things you can make, the only limit is pretty much your imagination.
You can import pictures and sounds from your device library to make your games or use the in game assets.
If your into making your own creations this is pretty cool.
There's even an arcade section where you can share your games with the world.

It's a very polished game creator for sure! I hope it sells at this price point! I'll pick it up when I can. (I beta tested this aswell)

At that price (I'm not one to complain about prices, this is for comparison's sake) you can buy Codea, an app woth a lot of support and time in the appstore. Just something to think about.

Thanks for the comment.
We're aware of Codea and it is definitely a great product, but we serve a different purpose and offer many more features that codea does not.

One major feature is the GamePress arcade. Codea has no easy way of sharing your creations. Collaboration is a real pain, due to them using the lua scripting language which conflict with apples policies.

GamePress is a completely visual interface allowing users to jump in with far lower technical experience (we have had kids as young as 7 using GamePress).

It is true that GamePress is a new app, but feature wise we are very comparable to Codea, and many desktop applications.

We have been working on GamePress for over a year now, and have no plans to abandon it.

At that price, all I would really ask for is a lite version so I can see exactly what I am getting.

Does GamePress allow us to compile and sell our games on the iOS store like Codea?

Not yet. We're working on a method to make this as easy and seamless as possible.
