Most of us game lovers (or fanatics) have fantasized about making our own game at one point or another. Because seriously, how awesome would that be? The truth of the matter is, however, that unless you got at least some programming skills your options are pretty limited. I wouldn’t even know where to start. So how does PLAYIR fit into this?

Next week, there’ll be more exciting things happening, like… cheeesetoastieandvideogames’ first interview! YAY! So remember to check back for all that awesome content!
And now it’s time for an epic quest into the nether…
