Zoom Game Editor is a graphical game development environment.
Game Editor provides a graphical game development environment for Windows (95 to Vista), Windows Mobile 6.0 and 6.5 and Linux. The software is distributed under a dual licensing model - the source code is available under version 3 of the GNU General Public License (GPLv3), but can - after being compiled by the user - only be used to develop open source games. Users wanting a pre-compiled binary or wishing to use Game Editor to create games to be distributed under licenses other than GPLv3 must purchase the commercial version for $95, which includes one year of free updates and technical support. No license fees are payable for games developed using the Brazilian software.

The Game Editor graphical development environment can be used to create simple game characters and environments, graphics, sounds and animations. Development is event-driven. The screenshots convey a good impression of how the software works and a short video is also available on YouTube.
