Game Maker
 
Check out this free download for making games.  It looks like it would work to make some neat games.  I have been working with it for a few hours and I am learning how to use it pretty fast to make an ESL game.   It would be kind of neat to be able to download and upload this type of executable game on ESL printables.

The gamemaker lacks the ability to generate labels to use as questions or answers.  I have to use powerpoint and then save them as images to use with gamemaker.   Other than that, the games I am making are pretty neat and my students seem to like them.

I found a way to generate questions and am using sound recording.  Thus, making the game more realistic.  Gamemaker is pretty cool.  In a week or two I will go with the flash version for making games.

Starting to edit the sounds to reduce noice to save space and make the sound clear.  Working on shooter type games and others that forces the student to look for the or shoot at the words that I call out on the speaker.  This is pretty cool stuff and not hard to do.  Just a lot of time spent learning.

It is becoming easier for me to make whatever I want to make with Gamemaker.  I am making some pretty neat stuff now and find it quite fun making the games. Sounds are quite tedious as it would be also for powerpoint but it is well worth it in the long run.  I found a program that helps to install your games.  Pretty proffesional stuff.  I hope someone out there is reading this, as I believe it is a better way to go.
