Popfly already closed its doors on Aug 24th; however, Microsoft have created & released Popfly Game Engine, under open source license and allows melancholic Popfly users to access a small “remember me by.” Now this’s just the game engine, that plays the game data files. It doesn’t include the creator, nor any server-side support code  – I took out the portions of the code that communicated with popfly.com for high scores, badges and the like.  However, I do think it’s an interesting bit of code showing how to create a simple game engine in C# on Silverlight. This should also provide an avenue for those of you who would like to take the leap from the world of the GUI game builder, look under the covers to see how things work and actually get your hands dirty with some real code!
