It's been over six years since I last used any adobe products, but I'm interested in utilizing them again for the mobile development features that have been added. I simply need to know what are the bare bone essentials required to get through the development process.
If possible I'd like the following features from the software:
- iOS publishing from a windows machine (and obviously android)
- Vector graphics software
- Skeletal animation software
- A few frameworks to play with like Box2D
After looking at the Adobe website I can see that they give away a free Skeletal animation program (Dragon bones), but the rest I'm not so sure about. I'm not made of money so will Flash CS6 be all I need to create quality games like Angry Birds and have them published to all platforms, or do I also need to purchase other tools like Flash-Builder and Adobe Illustrator?
I don't need lots of bells and whistles but if anyone could recommend a good collection of tools to make the development process easier that would be great. I don't remember them having so many different applications and I'm too overwhelmed by them all.
EDIT* After a bit more research I see that Flash CS6 and possibly even 5 have more than enough capabilities to perform what I desire. Looks like there's no way to publish to the app store without a mac though, but looks like one can just be borrowed after I've developed from a windows machine.
