Downpour is the best way to make games on your phone. Collage together photos, drawings and text, and then connect them together into a branching story. It's genuinely quick and easy to use — you can make a game before your tea has gotten cold.

Once you've made a game with Downpour, what then? You can share it within the app, allowing other people to play games and follow you, or you can share the link and anyone can play.

Downpour encourages creativity and meaningful engagement

Downpour (still don’t get the name) is a really neat way to produce gamified art. Anything you post is elevated by its interaction with the audience. It’s oddly similar to social media in a way, since you upload images to use as the background. But can be a lot more intimate when you interact with an post rather then be a passive observer. That’s before you begin to actually make a game, and there are plenty of creative examples of that.

Refreshingly fun!

Remember creating things on the internet? Remember HyperCard? Remember feeling like you had a stake in making a cool personal space online and then sharing it with friends and strangers and they would tell you “hey! this space! very cool!”? These are the things I remembered immediately upon starting up Downpour, and I’m sure I’ll remember a lot more as I go.
