Very few great Stencyl games
I’ve used StencylWorks since 2009, and had no proper game development experience before that. My first game was pretty subpar, as most first games are. I like to think I’ve improved a great deal since then, and I’ve produced a couple games that a lot of people legitimately enjoy.
The issue isn’t that StencylWorks isn’t capable of producing good games. The issue is that its “easy to use” appeal is attracting a large amount of newcomers, and those newcomers are all making their first games and publishing them. There are a lot of bad games that aren’t developed using StencylWorks too, and I can never recall a time where the “newest” games listing didn’t have those bad games. Most games that are posted simply aren’t good.
I know there are quite a few good Stencyl games in the work, but they take time.
