One, Amazon charges nothing to put an app on their store, zip, zero, NOTHING!
And there are other stores also,
Along with Tizen which if I could get that damn SDK of theirs to work properly I might make a version of any game I develop.
Two Spending money on a system has nothing to do with the professionalism of said Game delvelopment system and or game engine.
There are plenty of free Java Game Engines out there that are great. I just dont like piecing things together. More in too that one click deploy method thats all the rage with the kiddies!
And when did using the free or 35 dollar version of GameMaker become a kids thing? You both yourselves just stated how proffesional gameMaker was. Didnt know the Cheaper versions had a kids only mode built-in,
i'll have to read the help files more closely (stops sargasmic mode..REBOOTS system)
Anyways, maybe 200 dollars falls into both your laps freely whenever you need things. Me... I work for my money, and yes, in a month or two after paying my heating bills, and my car payments, and buying my food, I might come up with an extra 200 dollars I have free to buy the Droid Module,.
But by then I'll have purchased Monkey X , 99 bucks, used the IDE I already own for it, so that I have code folding, and starting working on a game that will work on Droid, Iphone, (yes i have a Mac,. OS X 10.6, I really need to upgrade for the new Xcode), on HTML5 and Flash, all for the small price of 99 dollars and the cost of my IDE that I bought.ahead of time so i could see if i really wanted Monkey X..
But I had a thought, that would benefit us all, why not ask for a sale for one module for each loyal GameMaker user, and yes I am Loyal, I think GameMaker is a great program and was willing to drop buying a new language, just to get a crack at using the Android version of gameMakers engine.
Would have been cool, but alas, The people have spoken ( all two of you), guess I'll have to stick to using AGK and the New Monkey X i'll be buying in the next few days, thanks for making my mind up guys, you really have helped loads. jk
silly me, buyin stuff for cheap (AGK (cost me $111) and Monkey X) to make games with, which when done, will be put to free sites like Amazon that take a 30 percent cut of whatever you make. silly silly me...
Oh and a P.S. Most Apps make little or no money, hence my reluctance on spending more than 100 dollars on any engine...
peace out ya'all
