This is a video of a very early alpha stage of WorldGameMaker. I’m currently in the process of re building it. I had a quite stable version before this one but as the architecture of ND2Dx has changed quite a lot, I had to rethink the way the editor manages its resources, the nodes and the components. Also, I changed the file format from xml to a byte format as it is much smaller and faster to load (especially on mobile devices).
Well, because I think it is the best, most mature and features packed multiplatform tool at the moment. Stage3D offers a quite decent performance boost on desktop and mobiles.
Why not HTML?
I need to concentrate on one platform but I do really keep HTML in my mind. I’ll just see how things evolve as I would really like to keep flash as its main target.
Also thinking about this one but I think more people are still into AS3 at the moment.
Interesting article from Felix Turner - compares Stage3D API with WebGL. Containing two demos with equivalent code, see how they perform on your own hardware.
This is a very special release for me. While the last few versions contained mainly polishing and optimizations, this one comes with a major new feature that makes entirely new games possible, and it makes full use of some of Adobe’s very latest Stage3D improvements.

Demo of new Query Graphics API introduced in Flash Player 11.6/AIR 3.6. Make sure you have Flash Player 11.6. Just click anywhere to sample the graphical objects from the MovieClip then reconstruct it at runtime.
