Love video games, but never had the opportunity to create your own from scratch? Insert Pixel Press, an app that allows users to draw their own video game. Yes, you read that correctly.
The Pixel Press app removes the hardest part of interactive storytelling, which is writing the code that creates the most intricate and detailed levels possible. You only need the bare essentials to create your adventure: a computer, a printer (to print out the Pixel Press sketch sheet and instructions), a pencil, an eraser, ruler and an Android or iOS device.
Pixel Press starts out with a blueprint that allows users to create and shape levels with terrain, hazards, power ups and portals. By simply taking a snapshot of your sketch, you have the power to design your level on the Pixel Press app with graphics, music, character animations and sound effects.
After drawing and testing your game, you can upload your level to the Pixel Press community to share with gamers and designers around the world. Pixel Press will be available on iOS in December 2013 and Android Mid-2014.
