Thinking Worlds | Rapid Sims & Games Creation

Thinking Worlds | Rapid Sims & Games Creation | Serious Games & Homo Ludens | Scoop.it

It’s Free, But What Will You Get With v3.5?

With 3.5, we’ve changed everything. In a nutshell, you will be able to download and use Thinking Worlds for free, forever, including the publish for IOS pipeline.

There will be some restrictions, however:

You won’t be able to create sims & games and then monetise them. This would be considered commercial use and you’d need to have a licence to Thinking Worlds Pro or our IOS Pro upgrade to be able to do that.Your sims & games that you create will have a watermark attached to them until you upgrade to a Pro version.Some advanced features will not be included in the free version. Those features will be: SCORM Nodes & Flash Nodes.This version of the software is not available to any individual, business (incorporated or unincorporated), entity or organisation with a turnover exceeding US$100,000 in its last fiscal year.

 

Create a Game in Just 10 Days!

It is possible and I’m going to show you how anyone can do it.

Thinking Worlds is a powerful, rapid game creation tool. But do you know how to use it?

Last month we contacted some of our more experienced users to find out what problems they had encountered whilst creating sims or games with Thinking Worlds.

What do you think was one of the most common problems?

I can tell you.

It was that there was NO instruction manual.

This was a source of frustration for many of our users and since then, I’ve been working on a way we can try and reduce this frustrating experience and turn it into a positive one.

Although I was unable to write a manual, I have managed to find a huge collection of training material that will help you start creating your first real game.

I’ve wrapped it all up nicely in an easy to follow guide for you.
