In computer programming, Klik or Click is a game development RAD tool using visual programming, released by Clickteam. The term Klik originates from the first product, Klik & Play, where the alternative spelling "Click" originates from the name "Clickteam", the creators of the software product range.
The Games Factory, created by Clickteam, is a point-and-click authoring tool. The computer program The Games Factory, and all the other products in the Click series were produced by Clickteam S.A.R.L..
Clickteam became their own distributor on November 1, 1999. Clickteam bought the rights for the name of their latest creation from IMSI, which enabled them to continue selling new products in the Click series using the Multimedia Fusion name.
All of the Click products enable people with no coding experience to make their own computer games. The latest products in the Click series are also designed to be able to create utilities and applications, for example, an interest rate calculator. This application would only require the end-user to input relevant information, such as their bank balance and interest rate.
The Click series has tried to appeal to the embedded internet applications sector, to add games and applications run inside a web-page. The products in the Click series are listed below:
- Klik & Play (1994: US, Europe, – 1996: Portuguese edition in Brazil);
- Click & Create (1996-1998: Corel);
