    Hey people.

    I put my epic Retro Knight game down for a bit to crank out a different game Dino Maker. Dino Maker development started on Sept 1, and its already moving along nicely! What with all the semi-recent Mario Maker craze, I thought I could make my own... and I can!

    This game will be exclusively on iOS. I might consider porting to Android if I can properly test it.

    Like Mario Maker, Dino Maker features the ability to create and play your own 2D-platformer levels. However, Dino Maker pushes the 'puzzle/maze' element a bit more with all sorts of cool switches, keys, puzzley elements, and so on. You can make any crappy level you want and share it with your pals, or you can submit it to the Dino Maker Judges for a chance to get your level placed in one of several modes (and get paid SCP Coins for doing so):

    Dino Maker features:
    Arcade Mode - Select from a series of "playlists" and earn SCP Coins when you get on the Top Scores.
    Adventure Mode - Progress through 50 Levels, collecting both Dino Eggs and Dino Parts along the way.
    Random Mode - Have a playlist of 20 levels created for you made up from any of the "Approved" Levels.

    Also, it's got a bit of RPG fun as well!
    Dino Parts - Find Dino Parts (Head, Limbs, Body, Tail) throughout Adventure Mode to customize your Dino, including things like super speed, fire breath, or maybe just a cool mohawk.
    Dino Eggs - Tend to your Dino Eggs daily, and maybe they will hatch into prizes, Dino Parts, or ... other.

    You can try out the current Dino Maker Beta 10 at http://smileycrewproductions.com/dinomaker. Just know that its only Day 11 of production at this point, so functionality and art are not fully completed. I will be updating this page almost-daily, so always keep at eye out for what Beta Number it is. I'll probably have Beta 11 up by the time you finish reading this. Maybe.

    NOTE: You CANNOT Create An Account yet. You can Log In if you have an account with one of my other games like Retro Knight, SCP Games, or Jobin The Penguin.
