Trion Gaming : Creators Of Rift : Just About Ready To Launch A New Free Gaming Platform : "GLYPH"

By Avatar Jay R Cela

    I have recently been exploring the world of game development, unfortunately my CinnaMateStudio is currently waiting for the next Ubuntu 14.04 / Mint 17 / Debian 7.x / Sabayon, LTS releases, so I'm off on a side track for now / LOL :)

    If you are unfamiliar with Trion, the creators of a MMO named RIFT, and it is one phenomenal game indeed. The easiest comparison would be W.O.W. In itself it is FTP, with a crap load of power up's available ( of course for a RL $ price - or - just plain slash your way onward and upwards  ) but the game is so good, the company is doing very well, and making a lot of cash. They want to increase that revenue stream by offing a new SDK for game Devs. Altough it has just been announced, it should be available very soon.
     With the amount of power and battery life soon to be available to all platforms, wither it be a Tower, Desktop, Laptop, Tablet, or Smartphone, the ability to create some very incredible, ( and profitable ) games for the independent developer is going to be a  potentially huge marketplace, an especially the Laptop and phone segment's.

     MicroSoft is going big time with their Kodu Game Lab, and VisualStudio Express 2013 could potentially be used for game development. Unity3D has already proven it'self time and time again as a very popular Gaming SDK environment. Valve has Game Maker Studio, and perhaps a new one in the works as well.

    The best part about all of these is that they are free for the basic, get you up and running experience. And that's perfect if you are just learning modern game design, not to complicated and great tutorial's are available as well.     ##    ##
