We are already starting to get impressive results from Nintendo’s game-making suite, Game builder garage..
What if the rights owner of your favorite video game series seems to have little or no interest in creating new games in the franchise? You can write a petition or make as much fuss as the media asks about it in an interview … but another answer, well, might be to make it yourself.It uses Nintendo’s new game builder garage F-ZERO prototype.
Twitter user Zelda Boi1 posted a prototype video. It’s basically a full-fledged 3D F-ZERO track in SNES original style, with some sprites carefully reproduced using Game Builder Garage’s clever toolset. Make sure it’s running embedded.

This isn’t easy, but it also proves the strength of what Game Builder Garage offers. Sadly, there are also restrictions. For example, Game Builder Garage only allows one camera setting per game, so it seems that split screen mode isn’t available. It is possible to build multiplayer experiences, but they should be essentially the same screen.
However, creating F-ZERO is a proof of concept and in the future you can easily build it using other elements to achieve a more authentic single-player racing experience.
The F-ZERO demo is actually a continuation of similar work by the same user. The appearance of Mario Kart in the SNES era is also properly reproduced. With a playable demo.. The same user is working on a game that recreates the original The Legend of Zelda game. But from a first person perspective in 3D..
Of course, Nintendo’s latest creation games aren’t used by just one user. In fact, if you look at the hashtags on Twitter, you’ll see that the author is creating something really impressive. One Japanese user has even reproduced Nintendogs in-game.

All of this appears in the popular #GameBuilderGarage hashtag on Twitter. This is what they have to do, as the game does not have its own sharing capabilities. This seems to have missed a big chance. But – this is cool. Game Builder Garage may not be as complicated as PlayStation’s Media Molecule’s Dreams, but it still stimulates incredible creativity. It’s only the first week.
