As many of you will know GameGuru uses a community voting board to choose the next big feature we work on and in the last round the community voted overwhelmingly for a graphics engine overhaul, which means porting the existing DirectX 9 engine over to DirectX 11. After two months of work, progress is good and we can already report much faster loading times and terrain rendering in our early builds. There is still plenty more to do and lots of new assets to source. Those interested in the technical side can follow the development blog.
We also wanted to let you know that the Steam Summer Sale has started and you can now get amazing discounts across most of the GameGuru range of DLCs and Bundles, bulking up your collection of game-making assets to provide even more choice for your next game making project. We highly recommend the Sci-Fi Mission To Mars Pack if you want to add floating robots into your game, and definitely, check out the Fantasy Pack if you are looking for a friendly Imp to stand as Ally on your quests.
This week sees a complete refresh to our AppGameKit website which now communicates the improved features and benefits of AppGameKit and showcases the best released apps. The showcase gallery is now accepting new submissions so please post your own games to get featured on the official AppGameKit site.

Here are some of the great AppGameKit deals on offer – the main AppGameKit product is 60% off, the AppGameKit Premium Bundle is great value at 60% off and both Giant Asset Pack 1 and Giant Asset Pack 2 are 60% off.
