    "Anyone can be a game programmer", is the tagline to Nintendo's latest first-party title. The newly-revealed Game Builder Garage goes beyond the idea of a Mario Maker, letting you build anything that you can think of. Opening the floor to anyone that's willing, Game Builder Garage, is, as the name implies, a game making game that simplifies the process greatly. You'll be able to go through step-by-step lessons that show you how to make a game, where you'll be able to swipe through concepts and apply them to your game. A teaser trailer shows tons of possibilities, from simple undefined platformers, to fully-realized games from varying genres. Games can be shared with others, and friends can play finished projects, or help further build upon them. Game Builder Garage is due out on the Nintendo Switch on June 11th of this year.

    Wonder what they'll call their custom scripting language: SwitchScratch? :P

    Also, RIP poor Smilebasic and Fuze : (

    They pretty much ripped out the Labo game/software and made it a standalone.

    Maybe someone would make Metroid Prime 4 or Bayonetta 3 happen with this. Although, I remember trying out RPG Maker XV on the Switch and all the top ones are pretty awful.

    This is pretty fucking great. My entire path in life and my addiction to software engineering and computer science was shaped by my early exposure to game maker as a kid. Nowadays, it seems like the only choice anyone ever considers is Unity or Unreal, both of which are giant bloated messes, and the community/tutorials surrounding them seem to be focused on get-rich-quick schemes, rather than actually learning the stuff that matters.

    So maybe some stupid little kid will get this dumb looking game for christmas, make some crappy flappy bird clones or whatever, but that will be a gateway drug into programming and computer science, and they'll become a super awesome person like me when they grow up.

    Good job Nintendo!
