Imagine creating a world that you and your friends come together and play... and creating it could be a matter of minutes with no technical jiggery-pokery needed at all! Of course, you can happily spend hours, days..even weeks creating your masterpiece, the great thing about GameGuru is, you won't be held up by learning strange alien languages or using complex modelling tools. The time you spend with GameGuru is all about creating and having fun whilst doing it.
With GameGuru, you can make a multiplayer game in a few minutes, including hosting and sharing your game online with other GameGuru users.
GameGuru comes with 10+ ready-made game demos for you to play and enjoy. They will show you the sort of games that can be created and how they were done, plus you can adapt these pre-made games and make them into your own games version. You’re then ready to go and design your own unique game!
