New Patch Live 11/26/2014

Welcome Everyone,

We have been working hard to update AGFPro and it's New DLC Battlemat!

AGFPro Updates:

Today we bring you a great addition to AGFPro Construct. The toolbar that our customers have found very useful in AGFPro World Builder, is now also in Construct. Offering you more options to use AGFPro the way that best suits your needs.

For AGFPro - Premium Edition: A new in both AGFPro and the Construct tool is the ability to Mirror objects that you are placing by the Z or X axis. This will make building things that require symmetry like a Castle, really quick and easy.

I made this CASTLE in 8 Minutes 30 some seconds.. using the new mirroring tools in AGF.. THE BUILD TIME IS IN THE LOWER RIGHT CORNER..



An alignment option was added in AGFPro World Builder grid system which helps in lining up Tiles for use in Battlemat. You would use this option when working with our Dungeon Tiles or with the new Interior Tiles.



AGF - Battlemat DLC Updates

We have added an Interior Tile Set so now you can build house interiors just like you build dungeons.

As well as few other little fixes, that have slipped my mind.

ADDED A CAMERA AXIS and HIEGHT LOCKING FEATURE..


* We are aware that the Dice are not tinting properly but we will have it patched soon.
DICE FIX IS COMPLETE AND UPLOADED TO STEAM, 19:14 11/26

  • Users are able to create game levels and maps using the software and also place characters (provided with the software) to play and explore their levels with multiple player style options (Action Role Playing, Platformer, FPS)

  • Just to be CLEAR – AGFPRO is NOT a game engine. It is literally made using the Unity game engine. AGFPRO is a real-time, RAPID Game Environment Development Toolkit and is made to be used in concert with Unity Free and Pro for level/map creation. – However, AGFPRO does NOT need Unity to run or create levels/maps.

  • The scene files that users create in AGFPRO “Basic” and “Premium” can be imported into Unity4 Free and Pro using our AGF/Unity tools.

  • By using the DLC we have already released for AGFPRO (Fantasy Side-Scroller & Zombie FPS), users are able to create playable levels with AGFPRO (only – not viable with Unity) with a variety of characters, assets, gameplay mechanics and special feature, “Scene-Linking” to connect game levels

  • There are limitations to some asset packs “locked (L)” that limit the users from loading these assets into Unity. All unlocked asset packs are free of copyright and can be used via Unity for redistribution per the terms of the EULA ttp://media.wix.com/ugd/43457c_ee338ac5b4f644eb8b432518a8bb3d79.pdf

  • The redistribution or “sharing” of the games users are able to make using AGF and DLC “Players” is a feature we are working on at this time and will be made available to users at no additional fee

  • Users are also able to create and place specific game play mechanics that are provided in the software

  • Full customization of your levels and maps is possible with AGFPRO Premium and Unity Pro, whereby users are able to bring in their own assets and models to make their games unique and further commercialize, making a complete Stand-Alone game

Additional Questions RE: AGFPRO?

  • If you are interested in making a complete Stand-Alone game with unique characters, models, assets and game play mechanics not provided in AGFPRO and commercialize it for sale, you will need AGFPRO Premium and either Unity Free or Pro software

  • If you are a development team using AGFPRO + Premium, you will need one seat per team member using the software, but we do offer studio discounts, so be sure to contact us for special pricing

  • We have many schools all over the globe using AGFPRO to teach game development and design in the classroom, from middle schools to elite Colleges and Universities. We have a basic curriculum available that instructors are able to include in their course curriculum and we provide additional support that includes software updates, access to DLC, non-Steam versions of the software if necessary, user support and special feature integration upon request and based on the terms of the agreement. We offer special pricing for schools and we find that schools love using the software as it allows students the ability to create complete games within the limitation of a semester and is a great introduction to begin to interface with Unity3d, without users having to program, model, animate or script.

Very Impressed,
As a student just getting involved in game development, this tool is a must. I have been learning c# for a year or so, and have created 3d assets for about 10 years. This allows me to create levels, quickly while I still learn how to integrate my c# knowledge with unity. I Highly recommend this tool. Thanks for all the hard work! - gnostic

People are complaining about how the engine is hard. it never said it was easy! After being stuck with Unity, Blender, and a bunch of other stuff (I love Unity), iit did indeed take me a while to get used to the controls. I do give this game a thumbs up, I reccomend it because with the logistics, education, and powerr... YOU can make a game in NO TIME. Maybe not no time, but... You know what I mean. It takes a while. BUT IT IS WORTH IT!

DO NOT Get this package if you own a mac!
You wont be able to import meshes, textures or anything you need to create your project.
Just ten minutes in and I couldn't get anything started.
The file system was completely untested!

The first thing I tried when I loaded the AGF constructor was "File>Import Object"
NOTHING.
Not even a (this feature will be implemented later.)
DO NOT BUY!

I would like to write a review about AGF, because apparantely, it needs it. I have seen all the negative reviews about this program, and most of them talk about how awfull this is, and some even say this isnt a game maker. I am here to prove them all wrong.....

AGF is one of the easiest game making programs I have ever used that anyone could figure it out, and yet, you end up getting a better game then the Cry Engine and Source SDK. The developer was very smart, and turned game making, into a game. When I doodle around AGF and make a whole bunch of stuff with it, I find it very enjoyable, because when I MAKE a game, it seems I am PLAYING a game. And once I finish a project and test it, I find it even more fun. If you are the type of guy that doesnt like making games, and hates putting all the work into it, and likes playing games more, well just try out the Demo they give and give it a try. You will find out you have been fooled about all the negative reviews about this program, and end up have loads of fun just MAKING a game. Plus, the developer works day and night making AGF a better program, by adding new stuff such as workshop. (COMING SOON WORKSHOP) And not to mention, you can easily make stuff in AGF, and simply export it into Unity.

The main thing I am trying to point out is, AGF has a lot of potential, and should be used by people such as yourself. I only ask one favor, and that favor is not to take all the negative reviews to seriousley. They are people that have no idea what awesomeness AGF has to give you.

Try it,
Test it,
Read about it,
Watch about it,
Doodle around with it,
Play and have fun with it,
but most of all, just enjoy it.

EDIT: More and more updates are coming out for AGF, and in each one, it gets better and better. The developer is open minded, and listens to other people requests on what to add next.

I'm not entirely sure who this program is designed for. It's basically a very simplified version of Unity, which lets you edit maps by deforming the terrain, and adding a limited number of assets.

You can then "test" your map by playtesting the map using a variety of pre-build "games". For example... if you choose FPS player, you will spawn with a gun, life meter, and if you set zombie spawn points, there will be zombies that spawn that you can shoot. That's about it.... there's no custimization options regarding any of the game elements in this "game factory".

After building a few maps in this program, I felt extremely limited as to what I was able to create, and there's not much creativity when the assets provided are a few basic houses, some rocks, and some walls...

Judging by the trailers, I'm assuming this was meant as a beginner tool for children to design their first "games", I personally thought it would be a fun way to design creative, and in-depth maps with a large number of provided assets, and then be able to design basic games to play with friends. (like RPG Maker) But sadly I was mistaken, and this program is mainly a "tool" to help Unity game developers design maps more efficiently.

Ok 1st of all this is NOT A GAME ENGINE. But it's awesome level/world design tool. It's really simple to use and at the same time makes really pro-looking resaults + is not that expensive if you compare that you'd give hundreds oh dollars for assets like that in unity assets store. I really like assets, weapons, materials and so on, they are all really useful if you have some imagination and creativity in your blood. Over all this is a great programm and a deal for its price I deffinatly recommend it!

While not the most intuitive program, Axis Game Factory gets the job done with an easy to use level editor and ways to import your own resources for more variety. This is not a game engine, only a level editor.

I've been dabbling with Unity for close to year and have tossed a lot of $$$ on the asset store - a significant percentage on terrain assets and tools. Had I known about the capability of AGF, I could have saved a lot of money. Simply put, this tool takes one of the biggest headaches out of Unity: that of sculpting realistic-looking terrains. I have spent countless hours on creating, deleting and re-creating outdoor environments in Unity. AGF makes it easier than pie. The asset base is not very big yet, but for me, that is not a problem. I need AGF to build my base terrain on, sort out my vegetation, my lighting, better-looking fog effects, etc. Once happy, I can import my scene into Unity and add the rest of my prefabs to it.

This tool is a timesaver and for someone who constantly nit-picks over silly stuff like 'that mountain just does not look right!', AGF helps a lot. The developers are active in responding and assisting with issues and I really appreciate that. I certainly look forward to seeing how this product further develops and recommend the investment for anyone looking for an edge in their terrain creation.

(And yes, AGF can now do a lot of other scene activities, but I can only talk about what I’ve been using this tool for :) )

Axis Game factory (AGF) is an unique piece of software. Let me start by telling you right off, that this IS NOT A GAME MAKING SOLUTION. With that said the software can be used in one of two ways.
1. Using the included assets or those from the DLC (Zombie and Side Scroller) one can make mini games (more along the lines of levels) and share them with people that have AGF as well. This is a neat feature and is fun to mess around but you are limiting yourself with this option. Of course this would be great for those interested in making games and do not want to go through the hassle of coding. For example I have a buddy who loves the Walking dead show. He has no wish to be a game programmer but using the zombie DLC him and his son can create fun little stages.
2. AGF can be used as a landscaping tool (terrain modeler) where you can create your landscapes and export them to Unity as a starting framework for your game. Using this method you can even build the file as an executable in unity and send it to anyone, even to those who do not own AGF or Unity. Importing can be done between AGF and either Unity pro or the Unity free edition. NOTE AGF uses some higher level textures that are only available in Unity Pro; your levels will still load in Unity Free but some features may be downgraded. For example Unity Pro has better water shades and textures than Unity free. So if you build a map in AGF that uses the water (pro) it will be downgraded to the standard water textures if imported into Unity Free.
Should you buy premium or stick with pro
The big issue between AGF pro and premium is exporting out of unity into AGF. With AGF premium you get an asset kit that allows you to export asset packs out of unity into AGF. Unity free does not support the creation of Asset packages. So if you are using Unity free you will not need this but if you have pro you may find this useful. SIDE NOTE the development team is tring to find a way to get this to work in Unity Free
Should I buy the DLCs
As I already said the DLC add some fun little playthings. I could see someone who wants to mess with game development but either do not want to learn or have not had the time to learn coding. One thing that you may want to know is that some (few) of the assets are locked so they cannot be imported into unity. The only real one that comes to mind is the zombies; AGF does not own the redistributing rights to those so they cannot allow people to use them in their own game. This is not a really big deal, since they can be used for play testing and level design in AGF. Anyone who is thinking about selling their own zombie game would probably want to have original creations anyway
Final thoughts
AGF is a nice little tool, something people at all levels can mess around with. With more DLC on the way I doubt it will get old anytime soon. The big issue is how much you should buy just starting out? This is really one of where the buyer is at:
Just wanting to mess around: I say buy the pro (standard) version of AGF, and maybe a DLC or two and see what you think
Someone looking for a terrain editor: In this case it depends on the version of Unity you are using. As mentioned already if you are using Unity Free you really do not need the Unity to AGF exporter found in the premium edition.

Really great piece of software. Support is great and they won't give up until they find the problem!

Looking through a bunch of the negative reviews it's quite obvious a huge share of people just bought this product without reading the description or doing any research.

I am a Game Development student and I have to say THIS is literally the best tool ever made by developers for developers. The main reason for it to be so perfect is not that it offers so much functionality that often seems to be too overwhelming for some people making them desperate and do nothing else but to blame others for their failures... Don't fall that low.. :) It's the huge amount of effort that has been put into the making of this master tool. The program is ideal for people who are new to game development and want to focus more on the technical part of the games, it is also a great tool for people who do game level design you can very easily make changes to your scenes. Often when I make my levels I feel like I am making a painting it's that easy!!! For me to unlock the full potential of this you really need to spend some time on learning how to use the program, do you think its not fair? Think about it... what if it was Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator or Flash? If you don't put enough time and effort to learn to use them you could never make that one masterpiece that will blow away everyone's mind.

Still not sure whether to buy it or not? Well for the money you spend you get more support than what you would get from your teachers and lecturers.

Best regards,

OK so first off, know that it is NOT a game engine. you can NOT make a stand-alone game.
I honestly can say that Axis Game Factory is kind of a mis-leading name, because this is a Map/Level/Enviroment Maker. It'd be better if it was called Axis Enviroment Factory or something along those lines. Other than the name though, I don't understand people who paid for this, not realizing it's only a map maker, then downvoting it.

If I am going to pay $20-$110 for software, I am going to do research about it. I knew going into this that is was just a map maker, and I didn't read the reviews, I visited Axis' website and read about all it's features. So if you feel cheated or scammed, maybe do more research. I honestly think a dev should not have to put NOT A GAME ENGINE in big bold print. It seems like they have on the steam page though.

Anyway to the software. As I said it's a Map, Enviroment, Level, Terrain, whatever terminology you'd prefer, maker. It's good for beginners in 3D map making like me. I dabbled in top down RPGs and hand made my graphics with ms paint. It took forever. I downloaded Unity and found it difficult to make Terrains or textures. With Axis, I can make Terrains with ease, then transport them to Untiy4. You need UnityPro in order to move things from Unity to Axis though which sucks but it really doesn't affect me.

I just wanted Axis for the terrain, and I am not dissapointed.

The developers are really dedicated always adding new stuff and improving it.
I'm very impressed by everything and would recommend this software to anyone.
It's so simple to use and great value for money.

If you like playing games, try making them with axis game factory.

10/10. GET THIS!

I've had AGF for a few months now and its a fantastic toolset that is constantly being updated. Also the user support is amazing! It's relatively easy to get the hang of and i cant believe how fun it is to make game maps
