Hello guys,

Yes I am a brand new member here and you probably guess, I am also new in AGK2, but I have been programming games since the age of 16 years old. I remember when I start programming on a old Commodore Vic-20, it brought some many memories back then. I just bought the AGK2 with the Unlimited Bundle package last week, I am still learning it's own BASIC language. All I can say it's pretty easy especially when it comes to 3D games. Now all it need is a good level editor for both 2D and 3D sceens. Anyway if I am here is to learn and share with other members of the community, I have some great game ideas for the future.

I am glad to be part of the community, hope to see you soon,

Marc

Virtual Nomad, yeah this is where I learned BASIC for the first time and when I've look into AppGameKit for the first the time time I was very impressed about what that language could be used for professional game development. I was about to get The AppGameKit Studio but I am not sure if it could handled my internal NVDIA GPU. I got one of those GTX650 only, but anyway AGK2 will do a great job
