AppGameKit Launches Unlimited Bundle

We are pleased to announce a new AppGameKit Unlimited Bundle for all AGK coders out there, designed to allow anyone who has already bought AppGameKit and some DLC to buy the remaining DLC's available at a discount of 25%! If you want to complete your AppGameKit suite, this new initiative by Steam allows you to pick up all the DLC’s you do not already have in your account.  The best part of this new type of Steam bundle, is that it applies its own discount in addition to the discount already present on the existing DLC products, making it one of the most cost-effective ways to get your hands on everything ever released for AppGameKit.

AppGameKit Live Twitch Today @ 4PM BST

For the next few weeks, Lee Bamber will be hosting a 30-minute session on moving your Tier 1 BASIC knowledge over to Tier 2 C++ know-how, and demonstrate this live so you can see how easy the process of becoming a C++ programmer can be. We're doing this to help anyone who has been thinking of doing this generally, but specifically, we have a project being ramped up which will pay any coder £500 to write a small educational app if they can deliver it quickly and to a set quality standard.

As this will be a live event, you are welcome to post your questions during the broadcast and Lee will be happy to answer them. For more information on the opportunity to help us create small educational apps, you can contact Rick Vanner directly at rick@thegamecreators.com

For those wishing to join in the live session, it's at 4PM BST today, which is Thursday 21st April 2016, and Lee will be sure to post the video once it has been uploaded to YouTube here: https://forum.thegamecreators.com/thread/216950
