A couple of days ago I received an e-mail by Blitz Research Ltd offering me a nice discount on Monkey X Pro, which I took advantage of. To show some love towards BRL and Monkey X Pro I thought I would share the offer here.
Monkey X Pro is a programming language for creating games which can be deployed to several targets including, but not limited to, Android, iOS, HTML5, Desktop, XNA, Ouya and more.
When you buy Monkey X Pro simply enter the coupon code MONKEYX30 for a 30% discount.
Now go buy it and support BRL!
Note: this offer is only available for a limited time and is available until 2nd June.
With the re-branding also comes a new free version. Before, the free version only supported the HTML5 target but now also includes the desktop target. Other targets can be acquired by purchasing a Monkey X Pro license.
Now that the desktop target is freely available as well I think I’ll go give Monkey a try soon. I haven’t used BlitzMax in ages (and I consider it a dead end as well) and since Monkey is very similar to BlitzMax I don’t expect too much trouble to get adapted to it.
