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 roduct=flash">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!

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.

Gamemaker is OK, but only for amateurs. It's OK for kids and whatnot, but other than that, it sucks

There are a few decent games made with GM, but they are few and far between

I like GM.
I can make some halfway-decent games in it, and it's a lot cheaper than Adobe Flash... =)

I quick question...in the first post is says that adobe flash cs3 is the ONLY program that can be used to make games for AG site...does this mean that I CAN'T use my Macromedia flash 2004 MX??? it does .swf files and all :S

so do I need to buy the new flash or is my old one good enough?

I think I'll try the game maker. Most of the games on there look pretty decent... And I bet I could do quite a bit there.

anything that exports to .swf files will work; cs3 is just the most commonly used one. flex sdk, etc works too

Game maker sucks, flash rules. End of story. BTW flash is worth the money, kind of hard to use, but worth it.

Flash is an awesome software! Not good at coding though...I love interface designing though!
