Using Wick Editor to Make Games!

Posted by GoodL - April 24th, 2019


USING WICK EDITOR TO MAKE GAMES

iu_21207_5484611.png

So Wick Editor is a really neat little browser-based software, very similar to older versions of Flash. Tom made a news post about 12 hours ago (at the time of posting this) announcing that we're going to have a Wick Game Jam, which sounds awesome to me! I decided to take the opportunity to learn my way around the software so that I can hopefully participate. I made this little test game (by no means a completed game) which, if you'd like, you can check out here:

Probably should read the Author Comments before you give it a go.


I said this in the news post too, but if some people want help getting started with Wick, I might be willing to help if I can. Keep in mind, I just learned of the software today, so I'm an absolute noobie too, but I'm hoping that if we can all help each other out then we can get more entries (and better entries!) in the jam! Not to mention that I just think Wick Editor is cool and want to help spread it.


Here's the newspost about the jam too, in case you missed it:

have you found the hotkey for a new frame
on flash it was f7

F7 in flash created a new blank keyframe. In Wick, if you go forward one frame using > , and then start drawing, it does basically the same thing.

Very nice man keep workin hard

You work fast! Less than a day after announcement and already this far along. Impressive. I'm thinking I hope I have time to make something but if I keep commentin' on news posts when i could be doing just that...

Gonna follow your example. Proliferating proficiency.

Also really like the design of this program. If it's as good as it seems there may be a way away from Flash after all!

OoOoh
