Nintendo Co., Ltd. is a Japanese multinational consumer electronics and video game company headquartered in Kyoto.
Recently this vintage company has decided to introduce something new for developers. Nintendo has announced Game Builder Garage, a programming tool that basically allows developers to build their own games for Nintendo Switch.
The company describes this as a game and design visual tool that features step by step by step lessons created by the mind at Nintendo.
This gameplay trailer gives a glimpse at how it works. There are boxes at the bottom of the screen containing different modules, inputs, and outputs. Players can grab an action like “jump” and map it to a button by simply drawing a line between them.
The game appears to build on the ideas of Super Mario Maker. One section shows a finger dragging platforms onto a level and resizing them. The trailer indicates that players will be able to create background music, textures, and more within the game.
The game features a colorful interface, but can seemingly get pretty complex. A quick reel of example games made in the tool shows everything from a fighting game featuring giraffes to an Asteroids-style space shooter. The game features guided lessons that teach players how to make seven different games as well as a free programming mode. It looks like a more child friendly version of Media Molecule’s Dreams.
Players will be able to share their creations with friends via codes. Nintendo says that the feature allows friends to work on a project together.
