Stencyl lets you build games, without any coding, which can be published on any mobile or desktop platform - iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows, Mac, Linux & Flash. You can start with a free account that lets you publish to the web and if you decide to publish to the mobile platforms it is only $197 per year. No monthly fees and no royalty payments to Stencyl.
When my son first looked at the website he was not impressed (16-year old used to the latest Xbox graphics), however, when he saw how popular some of their games were, he took more of an interest in its money-making potential! So before you dismiss it for being too simple, or thinking the graphics are not good enough, give it a chance and look at what other people have done with it.
Starter - free and lets you publish to the web
Indie - $99 per year and lets you publish to web and desktop
Studio - $199 per year and lets you publish to web, desktop and mobile platforms
Stencyl takes no royalties from any sales you make so you keep 100% of the profit and they make no claims on ownership of the games. You can make money from your game in a number of ways:
Charge for it on AppStore, Google Play, Steam or other alternative stores.
Offer it for free with in-game purchase options for upgrades.
Sponsorship from companies like Kongregate, Armor Games, Newgrounds etc.
To test your app before it goes live you can choose the “preview” option on our web browser or you can download an Appery.io tester from Google Play or iTunes for your mobile devices.
Best of all the service is free to use for 1 person and 1 project, if you like what it does and you have other app ideas and projects, there are various pricing plans which you can pay monthly or yearly on subscription. The standard yearly subscription is $25 per month when paying monthly which is reduced to $19 per month when you pay yearly and this gives you 3 apps and 1GB of cloud storage.
