ArtStudio is just too good not to leave a review for. I’ve been using Photoshop on my PC for drawing, photo editing, and professional work for the past six years and when I finally got an iPad with Apple Pencil support I was really hoping Procreate or one of the numerous other drawing/editing apps would be able to replace the feel of PS. Unfortunately, even though Procreate is indeed an amazing drawing program, it still doesn’t really satisfy my need for the familiar feel of photoshop and drawing with photoshop brushes. ArtStudio Pro solved all my problems. It’s got everything you could need and MORE (I especially love their amazing smoothing/line weight algorithm and pressure customization). It’s basically Photoshop, but without having to pay the ridiculous Adobe subscription every month. The price for this app is perfect, in my opinion (and honestly it’s even a bit low, for all it’s able to accomplish) and I really want to give a huge thank you to everyone who worked on/is working on this app and updating it. You’ve saved me so much money and frustration. Hats of to you!

Amazon to launch its own Lumberyard game engine

News

Amazon has recently launched a brand new game engine for tiple-A games called Lumberyard. Developers can use it for free to create games for PS4, XBox One, PC, mobile devices or even VR. The only problem is that despite no price is charged to download it, developers will still have to pay for Amazon’s web services. That is how the company is going to make some money.

Amazon Lumberyard is a free, cross-platform, 3D game engine for you to create the highest-quality games, connect your games to the vast compute and storage of the AWS Cloud, and engage fans on Twitch.

By starting game projects with Lumberyard, you can spend more of your time creating great gameplay and building communities of fans, and less time on the undifferentiated heavy lifting of building a game engine and managing server infrastructure.

Developers will be able to develop wonderful single-player titles for free, but if they want multiplayer features, Amazon’s got a price for that. Streaming will be surely connected to Amazon’s own Twitch as developers are not allowed to use rivals’ services and game studious are now allowed to use cloud servers of Microsoft or Google, but is that a potential problem? Twitch, for example, is one of the most profitable ways to stream your games as of today and there is probably no doubt that Amazon servers will be of use to developers.

Lumberyead itself seems to be quite powerful – it is created with the help of CryEngine tools. It is reported that it has all the necessary feautures –  from particle effects and and real-time water dynamics, to “vegetation tools” for super-realistic plants. Lumber looks to be a win-win choice, unless you are against Amazon’s web services. What are your thoughts on new game engine? Let us know in the comments below.
