GameSalad Creator is an authoring tool developed by GameSalad, Inc. used by educators and non-programmers alike. It consists of a visual editor and a behavior-based logic system. GameSalad is used in over 223 schools for teaching computer science concepts, logic based thinking, and problem solving skills without all the pain of syntax.[1] GameSalad is used by consumers and creative professionals such as graphic designers, animators, and game developers[2] for rapidly prototyping,[3] building and self-publishing cross-platform games and interactive media. The application runs on both Mac OS X and Windows computers. Access to a Mac is required for publishing to iTunes, but all other supported publishing platforms are accessible for both Mac and Windows users.[4]

Behavior system

GameSalad provides a graphical user interface for describing the rules and the behavior of game objects, called Actors, without knowledge of programming or scripting languages.[5] Behaviors are components of an actor that can either instantaneously, or persistently, affect the actor depending on the rules and conditions that govern them. The application comes with a library of behaviors (for movement, changing attribute states, affecting collision, saving, etc.) that can be inserted into rules and other behavior groups to create new effects.
