About The Game Creators

As the name suggests, our principal focus is to develop and publish easy to use game creation software.

Based in the North West of the UK, we are one of the most recognised indie providers of game creation software, with a great range of affordable game creation tools that make it easier for anyone to make their own apps and computer games.

The business was co-founded in 1999 by Lee Bamber and Rick Vanner, who met while the two worked for Europress, one of Europe's foremost publishers of education software. Over the years they have created many game-making products including Dark Basic, FPS Creator and The 3D Gamemaker.

Lee and Rick joined forces with Europress founder Meash Meakin in 2012, and brought in marketing guru Deborah Ascott-Jones in 2013.

The business is now focused on two key brands; AppGameKit and GameGuru.

AppGameKit and GameGuru both have established passionate and loyal communities and by listening and engaging with our users, we are continuing to expand the products based on their feedback and needs.

As you look around, you'll see that this website acts as a hub for a global game creation community. We welcome newcomers and experienced developers into our community and actively encourage them to ask questions and meet other like-minded developers in our online forums.

Our aim is to make the process of game-making as easy as possible and at the same time ensure you can be as creative as you like.
