 Is front page of Garage Games site misleading?, They show games not made with Torque!
 
Would you assume those games were made with their products?
Yes. It just seems like the most obvious thing. But I'm sure a company like Garage Games would never deliberately mislead us. [ 0 ]  [0.00%]
Yes, and I do believe they are doing this on purpose to boost sales, since they haven't really had any major hits, other than their rip off of the 1980's game Marble Madness. [ 1 ]  [100.00%]
No. I wasn't confused at all. Its quite clear that despite being a company that sells game making products, some of the games they feature are not made by their products at all. I don't see how anyone could be confused. [ 0 ]  [0.00%]

When you go to their official site, you see them showing off their game making engines they have to sell, as well as a list of games they sell also. When you see these together, wouldn't you automatically assume these games were made with one of their products?

http://www.garagegames.com

I mentioned that before when I first made the mistake of buying TGE and the RTS Starter Kit, thinking I could make a game like Tribal Trouble without any difficulty at all. Alas, it was made in javascript, not TGE.

When you click on it, or the other games listed, they don't tell you what they were made in.

Be honest with your choices please. By looking at the page, and clicking on any of those games, can you tell what they were made with? Would you be potentially be confused into thinking you could easily make a game like that with their products?

When you click on a game, if its made with Torque there is a stamp that says "Made with Torque", but if not, there is nothing. But someone just stumbling upon the site for the first time, I believe, would be confused and just assume all the games were made with Torque.
