New Website & New Version!

We have a new version of 001 that fixes a whole bunch of issues and also a brand new website that we're finally unveiling to the public!

NEW Website

After many months of hard work, we've finally built a brand new website for 001! Our old website was looking pretty dated, and a lot of the information was similarly out of date, so we've spent some time creating this new website to provide users with a better experience and to also introduce a host of new services in the process!

NEW Standalone Version - We used to offer a cheaper subscription version of 001 that required users to pay a monthly fee to continue using its features however on numerous occasions we noticed Steam users asking whether they needed a subscription on top of their one-time purchase. It's this confusion which led us to offering a standalone version instead. The standalone version has the same exact features, at the same price as the Steam version but without needing Steam itself.

NEW Game Submission - Our new game submission system allows you to showcase your 001-created games with the world! It also allows for HTML5 games to be submitted and played directly on our website!

NEW Services - On top of that, we've introduced a whole bunch of new services that we'll be offering starting today! These paid services range from one-on-one support to asset creation and even full game publishing/optimisation! Whether you need some assistance where you can speak directly to another person or you need some graphics/music to be created to sprue up your project or you need help publishing and marketing your game on platforms like Steam, then we've got you covered!

Also, all services are currently listed at introductory prices!

NEW Version (v1.020.003)

We've also updated 001 Game Creator to v1.020.003 which contains a host of bug fixes as well as a couple of new additions and changes. Here are some highlights:

- Added importing/exporting of TXT/CSV files for Collection and Table editors respectively.

- Added "Retrieve Position X/Y" options for Fields.

- Made it warn in log when projectiles instantly hit the ground, with a legacy option to disable it; will never show up in built games.

- Fixed AI Actors not going back to post when enemy is too far (it was also not properly triggering "Lost enemy" in that case).

- Improved game load times, especially on HTML5

The following all generally encompass that Actor movement has been resolved in several ways:

- Fixed collision/walking bugs introduced in last version, by properly fixing flat Actors going through the ground.

- Applied smooth Actor auto-climbing to event/AI-based movement and velocity based movements.

- Made Actor auto-climbing higher when Actor's speed is higher.

You can see the full list of changes at this new location here: https://engine001.com/changes/

Until Next Time...

We're still hard at work on our upcoming Turn-Based RPG Template and will have more details to share with you soon! As always, we appreciate your continued support of this project and we hope you're looking forward to seeing what we have coming down the pipeline in the upcoming months!

Steam Summer Sale + New DLC Prices

It's time for Steam's Summer Sale, which means big discounts for 001 Game Creator and its various DLC Kits. We also have an important announcement regarding DLC price changes, so please make sure you read our notice below!

Steam Summer Sale

From Today (June 21st 2018) until 5th July 2018, 001 Game Creator is 60% off with all of our DLC Kits being 30% off!






Following this sale, we'll be increasing the base price of all of our current DLC Kits (MMORPG, 3D FPS / Survival Horror and Point & Click Adventure). The reason for this is because we plan on introducing new asset DLC in the future and realised that the template DLC we currently provide is undercut considerably, when you stop to consider just how much content is provided. We also didn't factor in just how much on-going support work would be involved.

If you want to grab these DLC Kits at their lowest price, then now is the time to do so!

NEW Version: v1.020.002

We've also updated 001 Game Creator to v1.020.002. This update mostly consists of bug fixes and minor additions (some of which we've highlighted below). You can see the full change log here: https://www.engine001.com/changes.htm

NEW "Used Item" Trigger - a new Actor trigger that executes whenever an Actor uses any Item, with optional Equipment Area and Item filters. This trigger can take advantage of our Item Constants feature that we added in the last version! See our previous announcement for details on how Item Constants work.

NEW Audio Conversion - right-clicking an audio file (from within the Sounds and Music window) and selecting "Effects" will bring up a new audio conversion window that allows users to convert any audio to OGG or WV format. This is particularly useful when developing HTML5 and mobile games where MP3/MIDI files aren't supported.

UPDATED JDK for Android - we've made Android building work with JDK 8, instead of relying on an outdated (and no longer supported) version.

We've also updated Android building to target Android 8.0.0 (API Level 26) to coincide with new Google Play requirements effective August 2018.

Until Next Time...

We hope you enjoy these version changes and are understanding for our reasons for increasing DLC Kit prices. We have plenty of new content just over the horizon and we look forward to sharing details of those with you soon!

Graphically Assisted Scripting
001 Game Creator offers creators the ability to craft intuitive and imaginative games without any prior coding knowledge. This is especially beneficial to artists and designers who prefer a more hands-on and visualised approach or developers who don’t wish to spend hours bashing their head against a wall. Unlike traditional Event-Driven Programming applications, 001 Game Creator offers a huge set of built-in events, with the ability to also create custom events for specific tailor-made functionality just for your games.

PC, Steam HTML5 & mobile development all-in-one
001 Game Creator allows developers to build their games for Windows PCs (exe) - with Steam API support (achievements, statistics, etc.), HTML5 (js/html) and mobile devices (apk) all-in-one! Unlike other similar engines, 001 Game Creator provides developers with the freedom to create their games for all available platforms without paying anything extra. Best of all, there are no additional license or revenue fees for selling your games - so if you’ve purchased a copy of 001 Game Creator you can sell your games without having to share the profits with us!

Play games with everyone
001 Game Creator gives developers the tools to create ambitious online multiplayer/co-op experiences with built-in networking features (TCP/IP). In addition, 001 Game Creator also allows developers to create local multiplayer experiences with up to four players - with multiple gamepad support included.

The possibilities are endless
001 Game Creator unlocks the doors to a wide range of possibilities. Make any game you can think of, including (but not limited to) RPGs, shoot-‘em-ups, racing games, fighting games, simulation games, platformers, tower defense, card games and even 3D games! If you can imagine it, you can create it with 001 Game Creator.

Please note: Our documentation is currently only available in English at this time.
