Long time listener, first time poster (I think).
When the crew started talking about getting into game dev via modding, I racked my brain in an attempt to remember my first modding experiences. Turns out I skipped all that at first and went straight to super mega hardcore game development with the Unity of the day, back in '94:
Maxis / Europress Software's Klik & Play!
Any other Teh Hardc0rez Klik & Play devs from back then? I don't have any of my old projects (they never amounted to a "full" game anyway, just individual levels), but I'd love to see any games anyone else might have made using this awesome tool.
Also: Imagine my delight when I found that it is possible to download it! http://knpforschools.webs.com/
Back then it came on floppies. Who's up for a Klik & Play Wizard Jam?
