Nodon are creatures with big personalities that are used to help build your games from the ground up. There are dozens of Nodon in Game Builder Garage, each with a unique function, and players can learn how to build games just by connecting them in various ways.

It’s also possible to create a wide variety of different types of video games too – from side-scrolling platformers, to kart racers, to space blasters!
