Programs

Adobe Flash CS3 - Newest version of Flash and the first to be published by Adobe.  This is the ONLY program that Armor Games supports for games on the website, unless you have another way to create an .swf file.
Cost: $699 (30-Day Free Trial Available HERE)

Game Maker 7 - An extremely popular program that's used by many indy developers to create games.  It's extremely easy to use, and is great for those of you starting out.
Cost: Free!

[color=red]This topic is a work in progress and will be edited to include more programs at a later date.  If you want to see a program added, or need help with game development, please leave me a comment of my userpage.  Thank you.[/color]

No, in order for you GM7 game to be shared, it must be done through a .zip or a .exe file.  Armor Games accepts .swf ONLY, and there's no sign of that changing.

You weren't kidding when you said Game Maker is extremely easy to use. It's been very helpful to me over the past few days though. Thanks for the advice.
