GameSalad Creator is an authoring tool developed by GameSalad, Inc. (formerly Gendai Games) aimed primarily at non-programmers for composing games in a drag-and-drop fashion, utilizing visual editors and a behavior-based logic system. It is used by consumers and creative professionals such as graphic designers, animators, and game developers for rapidly prototyping, building and self-publishing cross-platform games and interactive media. The application runs on Mac OS X for producing games for iPhone, it also runs on Windows which is optimised for producing games on Android devices although games developed on Windows have to be converted to Mac OS files to be published to the App Store, web browser-based content in HTML 5, and Android applications. On December 21, 2009, Macworld Expo partnered with Gendai Games, the developer of GameSalad, for the Macworld 2010 GameSalad Challenge to promote Mac and iPhone game creation before and during the Macworld 2010 conference.
