Summary

We have had games that allow you to make your own games before, Little Big Planet is the most memorable one outside of Dreams. Fuze 4 is making a game maker that goes right down to every character in a line of code. It’s all about coding and learning the languages needed to make these games you play every day. As you could imagine a game of the is depth requires a lot of time and patience, they do add demos and pre-made games that you can play and use to edit and learn. What Fuze4 does is it introduces more people to the art of coding, it educates yet entertains and I cannot believe how powerful this game really is. It has just got so much in there and so many resources and help written in such a way you cannot help but take it in. I recommend Fuze to hobbyists and coders alike and I cannot wait to see what people come up with.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
