Game Builder Garage Software Revealed

It looks like the Toycon Garage feature from Nintendo Labo will be getting its own release as a game maker software.

Nintendo has announced that Game Builder Garage will launch on Nintendo Switch this June.

The software will teach players how to create and share their very own video games in a fun way. It features a group of creatures called “Nodon” that guide you through lessons of the basics of visual game programming. You can create and move a human-like character with an analog stick just by connecting “Stick Nodon” with “Person Nodon”. Many types of genres, including platformers and racers can be created. All Switch controllers are supported and a USB mouse can be used in docked mode.

Unlike the Toycon Garage in Nintendo Labo, these games can be shared over the internet or via LAN. You can also view games created by other players and check out their programming. Sharing seems to be done through exchange codes. You can also collaborate on making a game with friends.

Game Builder Garage launches for Nintendo Switch on June 11, 2021 for $29.99. It is available both at retail and on the eshop.
