PushButton Flash game engine in open beta
The PushButton developers have announced that their PushButton Engine is now in open beta. PushButton Engine is a free open source development framework for building Flash games that works with the free Flex SDK and Flex Builder. The open beta includes updates to the Project Manager AIR application and the overall folder hierarchy.
PushButton is comprised of the seasoned game developers that originally founded Dynamix (creators of Tribes and Incredible Machine) and developers from GamesGarage (creators of the Torque Game Engine). As the engine itself is available for free, the developers will be making money from selling premium components and assets that users can purchase to improve their games. The model also allows for game developers to sell components that they have created and PushButton will collect 30 per cent of each third-party component sale in the PushButton open market.
