An affordable and easy to use engine for making a CV fangame

If you're looking for an affordable engine to make your Castlevania fan-game without knowing any programming, this is the engine for you.
I'm not with the company mind you, but i've been working on my fangame using this engine, and folks have asked what i'm using.
Right now as of this date Feb 1st 2021 the software i use is only 28 dollars.. and the sell ends on February 11th. The usual cost is around 80 bucks.
I can't recommend this enough.

I'm sure there's some free engines out there that require programming know-how.. but if you want something easier than Game Maker Studio to make a fan-game, this is it!
I hope it was okay to post this here... if not, maybe move it to the appropriate section.
But this software has been great for making my CV fan-game... if you only want to make a 2D game and don't want to type out code.. this is what i use.

The software

While it does look interesting I'd be nice if there was a free trial version available. Just to see whether or not I might actually be able to use this program as I have a very difficult time trying to do anything program-related.

Yes it is.
I felt that it sounded funky enough for a city type area.
There's not many CV themes that would sound good in a modern city.

That showcase video was pretty good. Simple yet effective  :)

It's just mean to show what can be done with it as far as CV fangame goes.
I just figured something this easy would be appreciated here.
I used to see folks all the time wanting to make fangames, but have no idea where to start or having issues with the available software... a lot of folks.. including myself, just weren't programmers...
This software helps with that.


I just want to update everyone that the sell of this software ends on the 11th in 3 days on Thursday!
After wards it goes from about 28 bucks up to around 80 bucks.
Link is in the first post.

Looks interesting.
I'm up for trying out a new game making engine.
And your fan game looks interesting, too!
