Phrogram release preview ready for download!

The page at www.phrogram.com includes an introduction, lots of example screenshots, and the information required to download, set up and begin using Phrogram today.

Phrogram is a fully functional programming environment, and is far more fun, productive and easy to use than any other programming environment in the world today. Phrogram is designed specifically to help beginners get started, but unlike other beginner-friendly environments, Phrogram is as capable as it is easy. Even experienced programmers will be able to write games and graphics programs more quickly with Phrogram.

Phrogram also has a formal partnership with GarageGames, makers of the Torque and TorqueX game engines. You might have heard the recent news about TorqueX and XNA. TorqueX is the game engine which runs atop the new XNA Game Studio which Microsoft is making available. Together, they allow for cross-platform games to be developed that run on both Windows and the XBox 360! Check out this analysis about how much of a danger this is to Sony and Nintendo, if users in large numbers are really able to write their own games that run only on the XBox 360.

So what does this have to do with Phrogram? Phrogram lets you do things like display and control a 3-D spaceship model with only 30 English-language-like Phrogram instructions. And the core game engine for Phrogram is about to become the same Torque game engine which, atop XNA, allows for user-developed games to run on the XBox 360 as well as Windows.

Do you like the idea of putting your own programs on the XBox 360? Yeah, we do, too.

    Pls consider this quote from forbes.com, analyzing prospects of a new MS media player,

    “Moreover, the analyst likened Zune to Microsoft’s Xbox and Xbox 360 video game consoles, which he views as a “financial failure” with its huge cost to the company and profitability not in the cards for years.”

    Are you sure you want to align your amazing app with Xbox exclusively ?

    Thanks for the feedback! There has been confusion about this because of the series of articles we wrote that Microsoft published, but we’re not Microsoft, and we’re not exclusive with them. We don’t have a formal partnership with Microsoft at all, only with GarageGames. I should mention the Torque engine also runs on Mac and Linux. šŸ™‚ We have contacts and plans to talk with several other companies, and will when the release is done and some good buzz is going. That’s only a month from now! If you have specific suggestions or contacts, please feel free to mail me.
