    Greetings everyone! David here from Wichita, KS.

    I've been building games off/on since 2005. After a few misfires, I began focusing on consulting while looking for an idea worth pursuing.

    These days I bounce between Unreal and Game Maker, with GM being a new addition to the toolset in an effort to make it easier to whip up ideas.

    Happy to be here! Feel free to ping if you're interested in collaborating with a design/product/developer type!

    Hi, everyone! You can call me Jerry, and I'm from northeastern US. I have a year or two of on and off experience with GMS/GMS2, and haven't really made any fully fledged games myself, just some demos/prototypes here and there.

    I decided to go ahead and join the forums for a couple of reasons: in the hopes of learning from more experienced developers, having a place to receive critical feedback of my work, and simply to become part of a community.

    My key skill is programming and my anti-skill is art, although I make do with what I have. In terms of game design, I haven't had much opportunity to implement such techniques, but I do believe I have a good grasp of fundamental game design principles.

    I do view the gaming medium as a powerful art-form, and I wish to create games that are intricately designed, mechanically unique, and thought-provoking in its content. Too bad I can't do that yet... :p

    That's pretty much it for me. I hope to see you around the forums! :)

    Noblezim711 Guest

    Hello, I'm Josh (AKA Noblezim711). I'm a long time user. My first version was 1.3. I don't believe any of my games are still available as I haven't released a game maker game in some time. I picked it up again a few years ago, and hope to release a new game sometime. I have spent a lot of money over the years buying licenses, and never releasing games. I hope to stop that with GMS:2

    How long you've been using Game Maker: Since I was 12 I think, but more on and off than regular use of the program.
    Any cool games you've made: I'm working on a simple brick breaker game right now to get back into the feel of making games called Raging DinoBreak, but I have dabbled before in trying to make Pokemon-ish games, RPGs, and platformers. Unsuccessfully. One time I made a game called Pokemon Lava version and uploaded it to a site and got lots and lots of bad reviews because it was so bad, so that's a thing.
    Personality Type: I(S/N)TP


    Hi, I love making pixel art and have always had a keen desire to construct a video game using my own pixel and make my way in the world doing so. I've been making art for as long as I can rememeber, and I like to think that I have a decent amount of experience in the field. My passion is really retro looking games, because I love the simplistic look and feel and sound of games like that and they're what I grew up on. I want to bring that sense of nostalgia into the world and have people feel as if they're really playing a classic style game like that. Also here's a sprite I made. c:

    Other things about yourself: Ummm just gotta say...dang, Game Maker has changed...it's good though. I was actually getting into coding before I left but now the interface is different and confusing...I feel like a noob all over again...I wanna give it another jab but it's going to take some time getting use to this...

    I have been trying to make the standard windows executable but the compiler fails to make the application. I have made an executable of this game before, but I am now finished with the game and want to export the latest version. I have changed file names and locations. I do not know what else to do. Can anyone help me with this?

    Hey.
    My name is Peter, but whenever it's free I use Psycho_666 as username.
    I am 31 complete enthusiast of GM from Bulgaria (eastern Europe). I have been toying with GM since 8.0 back in the day simply for my own pleasure. I haven't completed any projects. Yet. Honestly I don't expect to. I still just use the GM Studio just for pleasure and to keep my skills sharp.
    Other than that I am heavy hardware enthusiast, amateur YouTuber, lover of quality food, coffee and drinks. That's why I'm fat :D
    Currently working on crazy ambitious pet project: a world sandbox, where you are a king and rely on your Knights, priests, spies, etc to do what you tell them to do.
    So there. Hope we will have a nice time together here...

    Any cool games you've made: Only stuff I've never released :p
    Personality Type: Depends on whether I've eaten food recently

    I've been working on a tactical RPG using GM for about two years now and thought I might as well start spreading the word :) I spend most of my free time working on it and hanging out with my GF and our 2 year old dog. I'll start posting stuff about it soon enough so feel free to check it out and ask questions!

    Personality:
    Passive Aggressive

    Just thought I'd introduce myself since I just purchased GMS2. I did so with the intent of getting back into developing games using a program that I havn't used for about a decade, back when Mark Overmars released GM 6 on gamemaker.nl

    Apart from game development I also have an interest in web development and have dedicated much of my time to creating Web database applications in PHP/MySQL. The only interest I have away from the computer is getting stupidly drunk :)

    Looking forward to being a part of the Gamemaker community again!

    I have big dreams, making games, enjoying making them and get this to be my main job. I also want to leave this country, as it is not for my personality. The people here are really different from who i am. They do not even know the heck is Game Maker Studio and roast me saying i can't make any games and call me a dumbass.
    Other things about yourself:

    Well, i just started out on these kinds of stuff, as i know i will enjoy them no matter what! So if you can give me some tips on what to do to start making my first ever game, i'd really enjoy that!~ I also want to have some reliable friends to support me. I really enjoy this community...

    I'm a GM noob observer, but it's still nice to be here.

    I've done a bunch of arty stuff, but haven't fused that into a video game until now, and it ain't going so well. Wish me luck.

I have a background as a web-developer so i'm handy with javascript and what-have-you. I hope to make some games early next year. Until then, I plan on networking and collaborating/contributing free content to others' projects when I can.

    BloodyHeartland here, named for a character from one of my favorite games. Underdogs like Suda51, Yoko Taro, and especially Swery for being so down to earth and taking the time to follow fans, all have inspired me to try and create my own games and tell my own stories for others to grasp their own meanings from. Had spent some time with GM5 and later 8 but it was only ever just a hobby, and now at 26 just doing part time maintenance work, my dreams of working on games had been gone, but more recently I've found my second wind. Not banking on being successful, but I figure that it will be worth it if at least someone can enjoy my work.

    Hello! I'm PocketMystic, and I'm a 25 year old game designer. I've dabbled in multiple forms of games from tabletop to video games, and I'm currently working on a project with a team of other developers.

    I'm passionate about retro games, and some of my favorites are Dragon Quest, The Legend of Zelda, the gameboy series of Pokemon games, and a lot of other old NES, SNES, Sega Genisis, and GameBoy stuff.

    I hope that we all get along!
