Following the success of the early access version of GameGuru, the developers, The Game Creators, today launched
the refined retail release of the easy to use game maker on Steam.
GameGuru received great reviews at GDC and from the early access Steam community, with feedback that it was very
easy to use, could create games in minutes and was a bargain at under $20. Plus the variety of graphic styles was
a welcome feature meaning the games created with GameGuru will look different for each user - perfect for beginners,
hobbyists and Indies alike.
The refined release of GameGuru (today at 18.00 GMT) includes a number of new and significant features added
since its early access launch on 27 February 2015 including:
- New Character Creator - create your own characters!
- Third person gaming mode

- Co-op multiplayer mode
- Story Mode (playing videos)
- Decal animation support
- Enhanced weapon features

- .3DS import support (Sketchup Pro & others)
- Many new LUA script commands
- Plus hundreds of other tweaks and fixes!
In addition to the new features detailed above The Game Creators have released six DLC media packs, providing
users with an opportunity to add a huge mix of new media and updated legacy assets to their collections. The packs include
buildings, deserts, jungle, dungeons, warzones and combat characters in Middle Eastern, Aztec and medieval themes.
