As you may have noticed, things are looking slightly different around here! We've gone all out to re-launch Monkey with a new website, new domain name, and new free versions of Monkey.
www.monkey-x.com is our new domain name, with X standing for 'X-platform'. We believe this to be a more distinctive, memorable domain name than monkeycoder.co.nz, so from now on, all efforts to promote Monkey will be centered around the new domain name. Please use it when mentioning Monkey to friends and colleagues!
The new free versions of Monkey X replace the old demo versions, and come fully equipped with two targets - desktop and HTML5 - which can be used without restrictions to develop and release commercial games. Also, free version users can now sign up and use the website the same as everyone else - we hope this will encourage more users to try Monkey and join the Monkey community.
Finally, of course, we have the new website, which I'm sure everyone will agree is a huge improvement on the old one! Apart from the sleek new design, which is fully responsive and fluid (try it on your phone!), we've added many new enhancements.
A massive thanks must go to Arthur Bikmullin (devolonter), the hugely talented Monkey user and professional web developer who has very generously donated his free time to improve the website. It was Arthur who approached us around about a year ago with the idea of redesigning the website - we loved his designs, and since then have been working with him to produce the new website. None of this would have happened without Arthur's involvement, so please show your appreciation by offering him a star when he next posts :) (stars can be clicked in the top left corner of posts - one of the new enhancements!).
