The first proper in-game screenshots of Nokia's upcoming Yamake make-your-own-game title have appeared at the Nokia Developer Summit in Monaco. You can see them below.

Looks really nice.
Hope the game will come out good.
From the screenshots it looks like it's some kind of quiz game?
Little is still known about this game as you only had this website where you made your own avatar. (Can't even remember what I called it, most likely wampyre or something)

It's a game editor where you can make your own mini-games, then send them to other people (the other people don't need to have the game, they don't even need to have N-Gage, in fact I think the mini-games work through Java so they will work on non-N-Gage phones too).
I think the game types are:
-Top Trumps (they've called it something else though to avoid copyright)
-Puzzle (the sliding puzzle thing where a picture is scrambled)
-Quizzes (answer multiple choice questions)
...and perhaps some other types too.
I personally think they should give this game away for free, to encourage people to make their own mini-games and give N-Gage free publicity. People who receive mini-games might ask where they came from, and if they find out the editor is free too they might be tempted to try N-Gage.

What you say reminds me of the creature creator for spore where they gave it out free and then you had to buy the game.
Seems like this could be done or they could do the same as they did with Reset Generation (However I think the result was that it actually led to lower sales, correct me if I'm wrong)
They didin't release their "brand game" Snakes for free, but I believe that Yamake at least will come out in a lower price, or at an introductory price such as monopoly.

the screens don't look all that promising to me. i just hope we get sufficient options when creating mini-games or people might just get too bored with it too soon
