How to Make a Simple Video Game!

About: i love doing random stuff completely out of the ordinary for no reason....

At you can make a simple game for free without writing any code!! All you need is a hotmail account and A LOT of time!

Step 1: Go to the Website

Go to and click create a game, it should ask you to sign in with a hotmail account. If you don't have one you need to make one and come back. You will also need to install microsoft silverlight, so your computer needs to be somewhat fast.

Step 2: Deciding

Now you will need to decide what you are going to make for your game. Make sure it is EXTREMELY simple and 2 dimensional. I have made a few games and they were all super simple and not that much fun, it is just cool to able to say "I made a game!" If you want to see my games look for xander1 username.

Step 3: Make Your Game

From here it is pretty straightforward, to add people click actors and find the people you want. Make sure you set their behaviors to what you want and have fun. There are much more detailed instructions and walkthroughs on once you make a game be sure to send it to me and be my friend on popfly, my name is xander1.

    This isnt even a video game. You all should just download ds game maker. Its much better.

    I thought hotmail, yahoo, aol, etc. were all forms of windows live IDs. so can have anyone. I guess some people prefer yahoo over hotmail.
