Dec. 6th 2020 Edit: This journal is now outdated thanks to some good news, everyone! I'm still learning javascript to make new games, but old ones are no longer dying. See my latest journal for that reason.

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!

I sure hope your dragon creator comes back soon.


That game was really useful for character development ideas for me.

Oh! I keep forgetting to update things, but I made a new journal here, if you haven't already found it:

Also, awesome 3D models! nn

Wow! This is great! Thanks!


Hopefully dolldivine games will be on here soon, too.


Glad you like my models!

If they aren't already on there, I believe anyone can request them? They have a channel in their discord and something on the website. Luckily mine were already up there when I found the program, so I didn't have to do any extra work to save my games. xD

I'm going to miss your dragon makers so much. I still use them to generate ideas.
Wyndbain's avatar

Well, there is some hope nowadays. nn I posted this journal over a year ago, but since then, there are .swf and flash player apps and programs popping up that can run these old games!

LostToTheMind's avatar
Yes! I didn't know that myself.

There's an app in the chrome store called supernova SWF enabler, hopefully it'll let me use flash post-2020
Wyndbain's avatar

Heck yeah! Knew someone would come up with something! And I guarantee that won't be the only one. I may try out a few free ones myself to link to them for the games.
