Game Builder Garage Nintendo Switch – Is It Worth It?
Game Builder Garage is an upcoming programming game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch. It is scheduled for release on June 11, 2021.
In Game Builder Garage, the player uses a visual programming language centralized on the concept of creatures called Nodon. The Nodon represent various facets of input, game output, and game logic, such as a Stick Nodon that reports input from the Joy-Con analog stick or a Person Nodon that represents an on-screen character. More examples include Timer Nodon, BGM (Background Music) Nodon, Counter Nodon, and Effect. The player builds a program by adding Nodons and making connections between the various nodes on Nodon, such as connecting the Stick Nodon to the Person Nodon as to tie the analog stick to movement of the character on-screen. Nodon are available to interface nearly all features of the Switch and Joy-Con, including the infrared sensors and motion controls.
