GarageGames Game Development Kit Kickstarter

GarageGames announces a Kickstarter campaign for 3 Step Studio, planned as a free suite of tools for the development of video games with no programming experience. The Torque engine developers seek a half-million dollars for this, and here is part of the pitch:

The 3 Step Studio suite includes free genre-specific templates and tools that help aspiring game designers create and share their game for iPad, iPhone, Windows and Mac in three easy steps: Select a template, customize the game play and art – or upload your art to ‘make it your own’, and then publish the results for others to play. The basic tools and templates will be available for free to use, with advanced tools, templates and additional content available through micro-transactions.

Don't forget there's also RPG Maker, too. It's pretty easy to use, you have a lot of different options within the app and it has excellent support via the developer and a robust community around it...

I think if anyone is wanting to try developing games, from what I've found it would be best to learn PYTHON, HTML5 or UNREAL/ActionScript...After that, if your brain hasn't liquefied, you can move on to something a little harder such as C++ or C#...

I went on a programming learning binge last year and tried to grab every pdf, tutorial, book or site that I could get my hands on but in the end, I just couldn't get my head around it. I'm lucky if I can balance my checkbook and math has never been a strong trait of mine, so maybe I just wasn't meant to be a game dev/game programmer... *sigh* I have lots of ideas though, like a modern version of EGATrek or Rules of Engagement 2...
