What is Action Game Maker?
Action Game Maker (AGM) is the latest entry in Enterbrain’s series of game development engines. Enterbrain is known for its wildly popular RPG Maker series. Action Game Maker is a departure from the fixed RPG genre and will allow users to create games with action-oriented gameplay. Classic SNES-style platformers (Super Mario Brothers, Metroid, Sonic), shmups (Gradius, R-Type), and action RPGs (The Legend of Zelda, Secret of Mana) are all possible!
Play your games on your Xbox360!
AGM has a brand-new feature that allows you to port your finished games over to Xbox Live! All you need is a XNA Creator’s Club membership, and the program will make it easier than ever to release your own home-made games on your Xbox360 console.
