Nintendo Game Creation Garage

Nintendo Game Builder Garage does not involve writing code and instead uses visual programming. All you have to do is connect creatures they call ‘Nodon’ to build your game. You can customize game objects, background music, effects, etc. You can switch between programming and game screens to check your progress. The game also contains checkpoints to test your skills between lessons.

“Have you ever dreamed of creating your own video games? The Game Builder Garage software is a great place to start! Anyone can learn the basics of game design and visual programming with step-by-step lessons from the minds of Nintendo,” explains the company.

Nintendo says it has added guided lessons to teach players how to make seven games, including Tag Showdown, On a Roll, Alien Blaster, Risky Run, Mystery Room and Thrill Racer. Additionally, you can share the games you created with your friends by redeeming codes. Moreover, you can also see how your friend has built their game and even work on games together.

When building the game, Nintendo offers the option of using a compatible USB mouse in TV mode. You can also use the touch screen controls or buttons to play Nintendo Game Builder Garage.
