GameSalad Targets Official Release

Austin-based GameSalad, the game development firm headed by Michael Augustin, announced Wednesday that it is prepping an official release of its iPhone game publishing system. The firm said it will soon allow games created by its GameSalad Creator tool to be marketed and sold on Apple's iPhone App Store. GameSalad allows non-programmers to create their own games, without having to write code. The platform uses drag-and-drop interfaces and a library of behaviors and components to enable those games.
