What kind of games can you make with the JoyMaker System™?
JoyMaker is especially well-suited to creating games that feature your art, writing, videos, music, and other multimedia. JoyMaker can easily create:
- Visual Novels
- Adventure Games
- Role Playing Games
- Interactive Storybooks
- Interactive Comic Books
- Interactive Movies (FMV)
- Virtual Pet Games
- Trading and Crafting Games

If you want to create arcade-style games or 3D games, or your game requires a lot of custom programming, you may be better off with a different engine. However, JoyMaker integrates very easily with Unreal Engine, allowing you to use JoyMaker to enhance and speed up development of your game's dialogue, storytelling, inventory, crafting, etc.
What kind of computer do I need to make games with JoyMaker?
You can create games using the JoyMaker System™ with your Windows, Mac OS X, or GNU/Linux computer. JoyMaker works well on older generation hardware as long as you have at least 2 GB of RAM, but will make use of hardware accelerated graphics and processors if available.
Where can the games I make with JoyMaker run?
JoyMaker creates games for many different systems. JoyMaker games run natively on 32-bit or 64-bit (Intel or Apple silicon based) computers running Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10/11, Mac OS X 10.6+, or GNU/Linux. For mobile, JoyMaker games run natively on Android and iOS phones and tablets. For web, JoyMaker games run on all popular modern browsers including Chrome, Edge, Safari (iOS and Desktop), Firefox, Opera, and Android Browser. And, finally, JoyMaker games may be embedded within Unreal Engine 5, allowing for playing your game on gaming consoles, smart televisions, and other devices.

Who made the JoyMaker System™ and why?
JoyMaker was created by me, Kimberly Blais. I’m a game designer, technology entrepreneur, and mom of four amazing kids. I made JoyMaker because I believe that game making is an amazingly powerful and creative artform that currently only a very small number of people can do. Most existing tools are very complicated and oriented towards programmers and other technical profesionals rather than artists, storytellers, and other creative folks. The assumptions and requirements of many game creation tools effectively exclude people due to varying economic, educational, and technical backgrounds.
I believe making games is a creative human activity that should be open to people of all ages and backgrounds. I’ve made JoyMaker to help more people get into game making and share their art, stories, imagination, and creativity with the world. I hope you'll join the fun and make something that brings you joy!
