History

Before co-founding Clickteam, François Lionet was the programmer of STOS BASIC in 1988, a programming language for the Atari ST and in 1990 AMOS BASIC, a more advanced programming language for the Commodore Amiga. Both of these have since been released in open-source form on the Clickteam corporate website. Yves Lamoureux was also a successful game developer prior to co-founding Clickteam, working with multiple companies on games.[1]

Products

Clickteam's debut software was Klik & Play released in 1994,[2] this marked the team's first successful software release. Subsequent releases included Jamagic, a 3D game-making tool, The Games Factory, The Games Factory 2, and Multimedia Fusion. Clickteam's most recent application is Multimedia Fusion 2 (MMF2). Released worldwide June 30, 2006, the title is the successor to Multimedia Fusion the company's most well received software application to date. The MMF series was designed to be a user-friendly, yet powerful drag-and-drop game and application creation program; easily accessible to either those well-versed or inexperienced in programming.[3][4]
