6 Creative Softwares I Loved When I Was A Kid

When I was a kid, I spend most of my time playing with creative software. I made one game or two for some local competitions and built a website for a photographer (who was actually a friend of my big man and wanted to encourage me).

Here are the softwares I remember from that time. Some now have new epic versions. But I enjoyed the older version back at the time. Did you try any of these tools?

Adobe Photoshop 7

Not need to introduce It. I had a lot of fun using the lasso tool to create awesome fake images of my favorite animes and making horrible designs. I spent hours using it. I even made a giant map of my home city.

Macromedia Dreamweaver 8

Dreamweaver (later Adobe Dreamweaver) is a proprietary web development tool from Adobe Inc. It was created by Macromedia in 1997 and developed by them until Adobe Systems acquired Macromedia in 2005. I remember spending hours in split mode, doing very bad looking websites.

Macromedia Flash MX

It is popular now as Adobe Flash. It lets you create animations, apps, and games. I used the MX version from Macromedia, and I remember making a CD that automatically runs a Flash application and provides a quiz to users. It was a fantastic software.

RPG Maker

RPG Maker, known in Japan as RPG Tsukūru. I used this software to build my first RPG with two of my childhood friends. It was my first game, and I enjoyed it.


Blender is an open-source 3D modeling, animation, and game creation platform — the first versions were very light. I also played with It for sometimes and enjoyed following and watching the movie projects each year from Blender Academy.

Game Maker

GameMaker Studio is a software for creating 2D and 3D games. I used it to make a clone of Rayman with a friend of mine.
