When I first had the idea to create my game, it was a struggle deciding which of the many frameworks out there I would use. Phone Gap, Titanium, Xamarin, Unity…the list goes on. Then I found Corona SDK, which used this scripting language I had never heard of called Lua, and I fell in love with the ease and simplicity of everything.
Today, Corona Labs announced that their SDK is completely FREE! Corona always had a free tier, called Starter, which was actually very generous with the amount of features that you could use. But if you wanted access to certain plugins and features like in-app-purchases, then you had to upgrade to either Basic or Pro.
Not anymore! Under this new structure, everybody gets access to all plugins and daily builds without having to open their wallet. I am very excited to see how I can integrate these new features into my game, and to see what other developers will create. I think this is excellent news for developers everywhere!
