Game Builder Garage Coming June 11


Get ready to build the game of your dreams when Nintendo’s Game Builder Garage comes out for the Nintendo Switch on June 11, 2021.

With this title, all would-be directors can learn the basics of game design and visual programming. Step-by-step interactive lessons that are broken down into parts will help players learn at their own pace. Colorful creatures known as Nodon are also on hand to help, moving your character, pressing buttons, and adding sound effects. When in doubt, players can also consult the Nodopedia for an activity log.

As players design the game of their dreams, they’ll be able to swap between the Programming screen and the Game screen to get things down pat. Just be warned though – one’s skills will be tested during a number of different Checkpoints. No need to sweat the small stuff though; players can use the touchscreen in Handheld mode, make use of traditional button controls, and can even plug in a mouse while in TV mode.

Game Builder Garage was designed to be versatile as well. Titles one can make include Tag Showdown, On a Roll, and Thrill Racer. Once done, players can exchange codes with friends to download their games and also share your very own.
