Because Adobe is killing flash games! D:<

BUT... that just might mean it's time for a "reboot".


(Fwooh-boy it's been a long time since I've drawn a wolf... don't worry, that's just the sketch...)

Edit: I know said I wasn't making makers anymore, but when I stumbled across a new program to make maker games again—MY SPARK WAS REKINDLED!!! Feel free to tell your friends and possibly everyoneyouknow.

Why "rebooted" makers? BECAUSE FLASH IS DYING. Also, it's expensive to buy the subscription for the adobe programs(for me, anyways). I no longer have the actual program to open/edit the original game files. But mainly because Adobe has stated that by 2020, they will no longer be supporting or updating flash player. So all of the browser companies pretty much agreed to boot flash from their own agendas, which is why a lot of people can't even run flash games anymore(flash is now disabled by default on all browsers). This means that ALL Flash games that aren't available in an HTML5 format will be unplayable. All of my maker games will no longer work(so I suggest saving them to your computers if you like the old ones), because they are .swf and not HTML5. I've heard that some folks are trying to figure out ways to make converters, or program javascript to open .swf files, but either way...

Zero score and seven eight years ago, I made the first wolf maker in 2010. That's about a decent enough time to make a reboot, right? (Here's lookin' at you, Ben 10.) Time for some serious upgrades.

I'll call it... Wolf Maker Redux!

So far, I have planned on trying to re-make the original 2010 Wolf Maker, sticking with a more "realistic" wolf base(as you might be able to glean from the picture). I plan on adding in all the items/markings/growths, etc. that are in the original, so nothing will be missed. I even plan on bringing back the glow-stick necklace that I replaced(for some stupid reason), and the open mouth that was done away with in the Wolf Maker Unleashed. A hefty goal, but I'll be releasing the game in stages to testers(Beta, then Alpha, but more on that later) before reaching the goal and considering it a "full release".

Also, in my tests with the new program, it already has a "Save File" option. No more screenshots! (Unless you like screenshots, then carry on.) AND it will be available for mobile devices as well!(Gotta keep up with the tech!)

Anyways, more to come once I have a base game to preview for you guys. Tah-tah for now!

is there a wolf maker that works on ios?

Sadly, no. Wolf maker was made in Flash, and Flash has never been touch-screen enabled. There is no way to update this either, as the company will no longer be supporting flash, and all of the browsers have already disabled it by default(which is why some folks can't even see my games anymore).

The future one that I'm working on building will be touch-screen enabled and can be run on any ios and mobile device. When the Deviation/Art/Upload is Just Right (icon) You'll be able to download the redux wolf maker on your phone/tablet and take it on the go!

Are you talking about a screenshot, or saving the game itself?

This new program... what is it called?

The one I was looking into before is called Wick Editor.

Although with the components I want to create, I actually took a look at javascript and may be going with that instead. xD

Hi Wyndbain just one more question: I downloaded your Wolf Maker and how can i convert it to open it without Flash Player and Internet? I´ve got a Windows 7 which is going to be cut off internet in January. I really would love to play other flash games without using internet or Flash Player!

Flash player is a component of internet browsers, so it will only work in a browser. As far as I am aware, there is no other way to open a flash file, however, that doesn't mean that you need internet to use it. I believe that as long as you have the file, it will open in an internet window regardless of internet connection, kind of like how google docs has an offline mode. You may need to test that, though.

Otherwise, using a flash file outside of a browser is beyond my technical know-how. If someone has developed anything to do so, I am unaware of it.
