FPS Creator gives power to the people

Thousands of computer fans dream of making and selling their own games but lack the know-how to actually do it. Now there's a revolutionary new way to turn those dreams into reality with a PC games creation package that not only cuts out the need for programming knowledge but also gives you free licence to profit from selling your games.

FPS Creator makes it comparatively easy for aspiring games developers to produce action packed First Person Shooters of a complexity and quality never before possible. It's the latest offering from The Game Creators, the UK team of specialist developers whose impressive portfolio already includes other creation tools Dark Basic and The 3D Gamemaker.

Eliminating the need for 3D modelling knowledge, FPS Creator's intuitive 3D editor enables you to virtually paint your game world onto the screen, using Prefabs or Segments to drag and drop walls, doors and windows that click together with pixel perfect precision to construct 3D buildings of many storeys and levels.

Adding entities is just as easy with 800 3D game objects to choose from, including 62 different enemies and 18 weapons. Dramatic sound effects and lighting increase the atmosphere and you can also import your own sounds, music, graphics or 3D models. Logical scripting makes it easy to customise every aspect of your game and direct the action across some 50 large scale levels with realistic firepower, explosions and dynamic effects.

Once the game is finished it can be burnt to CD and given to friends for multi-player death matches across LAN or Internet. Multiplayer maps can be downloaded from the company's website and for the first time with any creation package of this kind, you can sell your creations100 per cent royalty free!

"This is the first game creator that produces results of such a high standard," said Rick Vanner, Commercial Director of The Game Creators. "With a full physics system, great animation, death matches, excellent graphics styles and a whole lot of other clever features, the creative possibilities are both endless and comparatively easy to achieve, and that's a combination that no other product offers. There are already over 1,000 users of our early adopter version and they're voting it a great hit."

FPS Creator will be available through retail outlets or from www.fpscreator.com. Those who have already bought the early adopter version will be able to upgrade for a nominal charge.
