Flash Game Maker
Simply create the best online game

This paper is designed to present Flash Game Maker AS3.
Flash Game Maker AS3 is an open-source amateur project. The main goal of Flash Game Maker is to facilitate and enhance the quality of web flash games. Flash Game Maker is a framework supposed to evolve through collaborative work.

As mentioned above, Flash Game Maker is a game builder. Flash Game Maker is designed to help creating any kind of game such as platform, action or simulation games. Flash Game Maker is based on IsoEngineand 2DEngine. It permits to create persistant game thanks to GameOBDD, an Oriented Object Data Base. Flash Game Maker is also able to create multiplayer game when used in parallel with GameServer which is an XML socket Server.

Flash Game Maker is not only a hobbyist project. Let’s have a look in more detail to the opportunities offered by Flash Game Maker.
To begin with, the current environment is suitable to flash games. The number of casual gamers is increasing (Flash Games Market Survey 2009 provided by Mochi). Besides, flash games are released on mobile phone and hopefully soon on Iphone and Ipad. It is a really huge market. Besides, there is a new trend directed toward social gaming (ex: farmwille).
There is plenty of flash games online but only few are really interesting. Thus, differentiating by focusing on quality game is

Flash Game Maker is a new kind of project. The idea is to build a community willing to share, learn and benefit of participating in the achievement of Flash Game Maker. Indeed, Flash Game Maker is still in its implementation phase. Therefore, gathering human resources to develop Flash Game Maker is fundamental. Moreover, as presented in the following section, Flash Game Maker’s business plan relies on the community involvement.
Why people would be interested in joining the project?
First, to be part of something big! Flash Game Maker is an ambitious project which could be used as venture in a CV. Second, collaborating in a project is the best way to grow and achieve a goal. Thanks to team working you can realize things far quicker and better than working alone. Also, it is more fun !
Finally, there is a win-win strategy that will be discuss later on explaining how people could make money thanks to Flash Game Maker .
How to postulate? At the moment, the only way to join the project is by sending me an email with your contact info, competencies an skills, general background, motivation and expectation in the project. There is no limit of postulant and everybody is welcome to join the project. The best contributors will be rewarded. My contact is

Business Plan
The idea here is to determine if Flash Game Maker could potentially make money; and if ‘Yes’, how?
There is many way to make money with flash games. The most common strategies are integration of ads, sponsorship, licensing, paying games (Dofus) and prizing contest. Flash Game Maker is designed to create infinity of diverse great games. Therefore, Flash Game Maker is by definition able to profit of each of these methods. Moreover, Flash Game Maker benefits different other channels. As any good marketers would have noticed the precedents approaches are all product focused. The advantage of Flash Game Maker is it persistency and community. Indeed, unlike a game which will have a birth and end, Flash Game Maker will continuously grows and attract more and more customers. We can imagine a set of services related to the creation of games with Flash Game Maker. If we create a portal of extra services such as customization for instance, the community could provides sounds, graphic tiles, characters, items or weapon that other members could buy and integrate to their games. In addition, it gives the opportunity to any member of the community used to Flash Game Maker to propose individuals or businesses to develop their games. Also, the portal may be used to incubate the best project and help them getting sponsorship. It is possible to envisage a strategy were a share of the profit made from Flash Game Maker will be reversed to the community in accordance to their participation. In other words, another business profitable for everyone can be created around Flash Game Maker.

The marketing phase is an essential part to the project. As presented before, Flash Game Maker is a collaborative project. Flash Game Maker need to attract as many people as possible. That is why a careful attention will be put on the image of Flash Game Maker. That includes it visibility n the web, its graphical aspect (logo, blog, and website design) and its promotion.

Concerning competitors, we observe that there are only few worthy peers. Each of them has a particularity. Citrus for instance is focused on classic 2D games whereas FFilmation is 3D oriented. TheoWorlds, OpenSpace and PushButton Engine are the real direct rivals to IsoEngine since they permits to elaborate isometric games and provides range of big features; In particular PushButton Engine, since it is open source and uses the famous physical engine box2D.

After having read the previous chapter I hope you believe in the possibilities of Flash Game Maker. The most skeptical will say: “Your story is beautiful in paper but what have you done so far?” Flash Game Maker is a sophisticated framework but its core engine is mainly IsoEngine. For the last few 4 years I worked on its achievement. At the moment, IsoEngine is reasonable stable to think that it can be used as a base of Flash Game Maker (ex: kawaii-fight). The architecture of IsoEngine has been totally refurnished and adapted to the standard of oriented object computing (design pattern). Flash Game Maker use mainly IsoEngine, 2DEngine will be used as a complement to offer the opportunities to add extra mini games or interactive loading phases.

Things to do
So what is needed to do? That is a big question (thanks to ask ^^). The project can be divided in two, the product Flash Game Maker and the services. Concerning the Flash Game Maker, the code need to be finalized and features must continuously improve. Also, it is a key to ensure that Flash Game Maker is easy to use. All parts of the framework could be distributed to different teams. A second effort must be directed toward the elaboration of a website, logo and platform collaborative (SVN, forum…). The services will have to wait till the product is completely finished but I am sure that would be a really interesting part. To see in more details all the tasks please refers to the complementary documents.

Technical Aspects

The difference between IsoEngineand 2DEngine is the perspective. Indeed, 2DEngine uses a classic 2D view while IsoEngine use an isometric view. An isometric view is a perspective imitating 3D only using 2D graphics. It has the advantages to consume fewer resources. Besides, graphics are easier to find or create. Both engines are supported by an editorresponsible to build the maps. Editors can also be used dynamically in games like in strategy games to build unit or modify the environment (ex: Farmville, Sim City or C&C)

Yes, I also experienced flash. And my experience was very good. You divided your project into two parts but my question is how you managed your tasks?
