It's so neat to see people talking about learning Flash and Unity. It's a really daunting task for a lot of folk, so all y'all just diving in are clearly pretty darn brave.
I thought I'd see what other tools everyone likes to use to experiment making games with. Obviously RPGMaker in all its various forms is kind of iconic, but what about Twine or Choice Script? What got you interested in making games, and what do you feel like would help you get there? I feel like we need a NaNoWriMo (or obviously NaNoRenO), but for baby steps in game making across all platforms.
