Thanks for answering. That was the only concern I had  :)
It does sound good! Looking forward to learning more when you launch it.
(Sorry if my op was confusing)

I was interested when it was mentioned in the promo (paraphrasing here),
If you can't find what you require you can tell us what you need and our team will create it for you.
It raised the possibility (and I may be way off the mark) that you are intending to use the work of other artists and musicians to draw traffic to your site? eg: using others work to enhance the content of your site for SEO purposes?
Is the real intention of the site to sell your own private products and creative services?
There is nothing wrong with that, great business idea etc, but it is presented as a lovely artistic community project. Those cynical among us could argue that you are going to get a lot of fabulous free content that will drive "perfect customer" traffic to your site for like you said "peanuts".
I hope it really is the feel good win win that is pitched in the ad.
Really interested to learn more...
To explain myself further;
When you are dealing with artistic/creative people intention is important.
Let's face it, there are many out there that will exploit talent for personal gain so it is wise for all the talented people here to get all the facts before allowing others to market their work.

Snap, just added a bit to my previous post about your art  :)
LOL at your thoughts on red rocket I assure you it is appropriate  ;D

Thanks for the very kind welcome! :)
"What kind of games am I interested in making?"
I have a Zombie song that I think has an awesome guitar riff (LOL) and a vivid storyline so...something fun to go with that? I was thinking a horror zombie locked in a room type of thing aimed at an android/ios tablet app market. Hoping people will click through and buy the mp3 from itunes and I'll win a grammy, JOKE! but one must dream... and it could happen right? ;D

Then on the other end of the scale I have a whole music/ story thing I wrote for my little ones about red red rocket to the moon (which isn't as boring as it sounds :P) I would like to develop it as a point and click adventure game but with mini platform games within it?

My plan is to try lots of different things while learning how to use this software so these ideas will probably change with more experience under my belt!

The tech side is definitely a challenge as my only prior experience is photoshop, a little beginner animation and some website creation sooo a long long road ahead.

I've read good advice on here about starting small so...that's what I'll do.

(@twotimingpete, your art is wonderful! I love the characters (assets) you have created, and my heart skipped a beat when you said you created them in photoshop, very inspiring! Just got signed up for "Creative Cloud" (this is not spam, just saying...) so I could get a 30 day trial of photoshop CS6 extended. I have been working with photoshop 7!)

Hi I'm Kate,
I'm so thrilled to find stencyl!
I have already learnt so much just reading a lot of your posts :)
My experience is limited...
I'm a mad musician that gave up travelling when I had my two gorgeous boys. Now I'm a Pj wearing "work at home" mum. I run a couple of online shops etc
I have a lot of original music and stories that I would like to bring to life with stencyl.
Looking forward to learning and observing in this forum  ;D

News / Re: Stencyl 3.0 - Design Once. Play Anywhere.

I stumbled upon Stencyl while making a desperate Google search to find a game engine I could use and understand last night.
The 3.0 version sounds amazing (mind you after reading the stencylpedia last night I'm already blown away with what the current version can do)
Anyway just wanted to say what a wonderful product you have & thanks  :)
