Many people's dream is to create games and knowing how to program is often not so easy. The way out for many people (including me) is to create a simple Powerpoint game. Nowadays this is almost a reality, but PowerPoiunt needs minor adjustments to make it perfect (some of these adjustments are not limited to just creating games):
Iframe in the web version for PPSX files could have an option to not show the control buttons at the bottom of the screen. The click of the mouse would be at the discretion of just how the user chose (for example, passing the slides by command of a button);
the iframe could adjust itself automatically, according to the device's screen (desktop, tablet, cell phone), in addition to rotating the screen;
Pass slides by command of specific keys;
In the Windows version, in the path "File - Information - Protect presentation", we do not have a function to block for editing by password. What I see today are two different things: or the user can only open the presentation if he types the password. Or we managed to block the edition, but with a simple command, PowerPoint releases the edition. Ideally, users would be able to view the content, but blocking the edition would be possible only with a password.
Hidden slides: the idea here would be similar to the previous item. There could be a password lock to view hidden slides. If the person did not have a password, they would not be able to see the slides hidden within the software.
Creation of animated gifs: In "file - export - create an animated gif", we could have the option to create with transparent background.
Remove background from images: for this function to be perfect, there could be a function to smooth the edges.
Color substitution of photos: when selecting a photo and going on the "image format - color" path, I see that the tones are not applied as faithfully. Example: when selecting a red color, I notice that it is in a shade closer to a pink / brown.
These are the contributions I remember so far. If I remember more, I will post more.
This would also help a lop for making games in PPT.
I've tried to create a PowerPoint game called Mouse Cursor Game (Mouse cursor should be on the line or you will lose). But until now it have a major issue, where players can hold right click to bypass the Mouse Over action, even on Kiosk mode. I've asked the community and someone said it will be hard to fix this issue. I hope Microsoft will make us as PowerPoint games developers more easier to use PowerPoint to make simple games.
it's just an observation i forgot to mention. Powerpoint is already used to make simple games by some users. many people have already woken up to this potential of PowerPoint, minus its developers. I think it's past time to officially make this official.
