Announcing CAT Game Builder for Unity
Tricky Fast Studios is proud to announce CAT Game Builder! CAT Game Builder is the easier, faster way to make games in Unity. With CAT’s scores of modular Conditions, Actions, Triggers, and integrated game systems, you can create prototypes, demos, or full games with little or no additional programming.
Over the years, we have found one need that is common across all our clients: a faster way to create content and new features. Unity provides an excellent framework for laying out the visuals of a game, but you still need to do a fair bit of programming before the game comes to life. While working with Story Arc Media on Poptropica Worlds recently, we found ourselves with exactly this problem. A ton of game features and content needed to be created for the initial launch and accelerated content generation was desired post-launch.
Building upon the ideas behind systems we had designed and developed on previous projects, Mike had devised a relatively simple, yet extremely powerful, state machine based toolset for content creation. Rather than trying to create a flowchart style state editor, we relied on the inherent editor UI in Unity. Virtually every system in the game interfaced with CAT. Meaning creating additional content, even new systems, could be done without any new code. We could update the game without triggering a new submission to the app stores. CAT was the toolset that allowed us to meet our deadline with relative ease. Making content was so fast!
Upon shipping Poptropica Worlds, we decided to create an even more robust version of CAT for the public (ok for ourselves too). Enter CAT Game Builder!
What is CAT Game Builder?
CAT Game Builder is a fully extendible framework designed for use by professional teams yet easy enough for beginners to master. Using a similar workflow and design to built-in Unity components, CAT Game Builder seamlessly extends the Unity editor to become a complete game making tool. Its power, ease of use, and versatility make CAT an excellent choice for individuals and teams of all sizes.
With CAT Game Builder, building custom Conditions, Actions, or Triggers to use and reuse in your own games is a breeze. Additionally, it is easy to integrate into both new and existing game systems with just a bit of programming, so you can make new games or add features to existing games easier and faster than ever before. Future add-on modules will provide CAT integrated systems to make it even easier to build many genres of games including RPG, RTS, FPS, Casual, MOBA, Casino games, and more.
