We love GameSalad. Not only is it an awesome way for everyone (even idiots and lowlifes) to develop iPhone and iPad games, it also provides employment for beloved ex G4-ian Jon Hunt (long may he wave.) GameSalad is doing very, very well, too. According to the company, over three percent of all iOS games are developed using their drag-and-drop game creation tools. December saw GameSalad developers design, build, and launch close to 300 original titles, comprising more than 6% of all games submitted to the App Store that month.
Since the tool launched in 2009, GameSalad developers have created multiple games with over a million downloads and numerous hits in the iTunes “Top 20,” including a #1 Entertainment Title that generated over $3,000,000 in revenue.You could buy over 17 hamburgers with that kind of money!
So join me, oh, The Internet, in congratulating GameSalad for their total pwnership of the iTunes app store. When you're finished, go and download the creation tools for free, and make a game about me. (Put lightsabers in it, pls.)
