Yeah I saw that, I feel cheated!!!

There is actually a couple of model packs I don't own in there so its worth a £20 note for sure.

@Zaxxan I don't think it's amazing deal . I think better go with Steam deal instate . May be steam pricing vary Country to country . But I always get very low cost on summer/winter sell on steam , and even www.fanatical.com unknown to me . So my opinion better to go with steam or official website .

But there is a " ref=gamefromscratch " if this reff is @Virtual Nomad then we can trust .

Steam is lot more expensive. All of the supplied keys in this bundle are for Steam anyway. I believe Fanatical are similar to Humble Bundle.

Does anyone know if the GameGuru DLC can be used in GameGuru Max?

I'm sure the Tier 3 was £18 last night?? It's now £13 or I need new glasses.

@Tambam, Fanatical is ok, ref=gamefromscratch is the affiliate link for the youtube channel GamesFromScrach a good channel

I trust them both and I'm a suspicious person, its fine

Yeah, Max still uses the fpe system, you might need to edit them for dynamic objects with animations not sure but the models are compatible, pretty sure Lee said the DLC packs just drop right into Max

I've got everything except some of the media stuff, and I'm tempted to get it just for that. It's a really good deal!

I've bought it even though I already have most of it. There are 6 DLC's I don't have which are selling for £112 on Steam so its still a good deal. I now also have Steam keys for AppGameKit as i originally purchased them through TGC.

Good price just for all the assets alone. But I'm still trying to figure out the need for AppGameKit studio, just seems like the same product rebranded with a few extras. I also noticed that all the bundled games with this deal are by the same guy JimJams.

The main differences I believe are that Studio supports Vulcan and has a Scene Editor. It's personal preference what you consider to be the best editor. I generally use Classic but I have also started to use Studio as well. With this deal you can buy both at a ridiculously low price and then just use what you feel most comfortable with. I do think though if Studio was developed further it could be the better editor.

I do find the help system on the Classic to be better for beginners as examples are included when F1 is pressed. As a fairly new user of AppGameKit I found the integrated help system of Studio somewhat lacking. An option to change the F1 key to use the Classic help system would be useful.

I like very simple, basic editors. Give me only what I need and nothing more. I use notepad++ for all my web programming. Even though I use Eclipse for java stuff, I find the editor overly complicated.

I'm the same, if I use Studio I close most of the additional windows as it is quite cluttered by default.

I am super impressed with notepad++ and it's ablilty to be customized using plugins.
With notepad++, python plugin and NPPEXEC plugin you can do anything

@TamBam This deal is official as it is mentioned on The Games Creators website in the news section:

https://www.appgamekit.com/news

TGC have also said it's their best deal ever!

For someone who is thinking about trying AppGameKit or gameguru it is amazing . I was happy to get studio for 31.59 but if this offer would of been on I would of thought all my Christmases had come at once.
