Games in Alice:
 
On the home page it says you can create 3d games....? How?!
I only know how to make movies. (I have the story telling Alice)

Please help.

Thanks.

You can make games, but what you want to make can be VERY limited since Alice doesn't have a lot of the functions, or abilities that normal programming languages have.

You should check Dick Baldwin's Alice tutorials (they're very helpful).

what i do usually is to find a game that is simple and fits alice well (like Battlezone 1980 arcade goes with alice perfectly) I try looking at older title games... or you can come up with your own simple game.

Who would have thought that nesting would look so colourful and candy-like...?
Thank you for the tidbit. It sort of answered a question I have been mulling about.

Creating games
 
I do not have story telling Alice, but I think that you would be much better off creating games with the regular Alice.
