    Hi, I’m OmegaYoshi. I’m 14 years old and I have been using Game Maker for about a week now. I’ve recently finished my first game entitled Avoid the Pits!, which is a simplistic 2D platformer. My forte is level design, and (unfortunately) I lack experience in programming. Not much else to say, really.

    Where you're from: California, but currently Nebraska.
    How long you've been using Game Maker: Since GM8, so 8ish years.
    Any cool games you've made: Nothing.

    Other things about yourself:
    • I haven't really used GameMaker in a long time (I've owned every edition since 7 though).
    • I am proficient in C# and PowerShell (used for my day job)
    • I am not a designer whatsoever, I don't have any art skills.
    • I have never been to college, so I have that going for me.

    Hey peeps!

    Nico, 40, from Windhoek, Namibia.
    Artist & graphic designer.
    Currently working on backgrounds & props for some South African game developers.
    They are using GameMaker, but I personally don't know how to use it.

    Am interested in using games to deliver cool art & storytelling.

    Other things about yourself:
    I used to teach Web Development at a design school, and now I build websites full time. I've always been interested in Game Development and picked up Phaser for a while before deciding that using an IDE like GameMaker Studio is a much better use of time. I look forward to sharing my projects on Itch and GitLab!

    This seems like the appropriate place to put this.

    I've made a video specifically addressing this community, and my excitement on being back here.

    In short, it's a testimonial to the role this community played in getting me where I'm at today.

    How long you've been using Game Maker: Barely a month
    Any cool games you've made: none


    Other things about yourself:
    I compose music using DAWs and MIDI with my keyboard, and I am learning how to play electric guitar. I also program in C ( and little bit of C++ ), MSDOS console programs via djgpp , Linux programs via gcc, but this has been at rest since I got GMS2. So I am transitioning from C and C++ to GML. Before I learned C , I learned the worst programming langauge ever - Commodore Business Machines BASIC, Commodore Business Machines Licensed version of Microsoft BASIC called Amiga BASIC on a Amiga 500. I will never touch BASIC or even Visual BASIC ( which I saw on Windows 3.x long long ago). I wont touch Oracle's ( formerly Sun Microsystems ) Java programmig language, in any way - it does not do object-oriented programming like C++. JAVA does not have even a ISO standard like C or C++. I just remembered , I think I need to update my copy of the C standard to C11 ( C1X ) - I still have the C99 standard .pdf but the update is too expensive at the moment.

    How long you've been using Game Maker: I used a bit of 1.4 a couple of years back, but never delved into it. Purchased GMS2 about 3 days ago.
    Any cool games you've made: HAHAHHAHAHHAHHAHA
    Personality Type: ESFP-A

    Other things about yourself: Moderate Weeb. Currently in an Early/Middle College Program. Getting my AAS, then moving on to University. I'm very easygoing, and I try to be as likeable as possible ("ESPF-A", remember? The "A" is from me forcing my jokes into odd situations. I'm workin' on it). Now going into Programming (C++) and figured I'd finally follow my childhood dream of making games along the way. Mainly inspired by Pokemon, Castlevania, Megaman, I Wanna Be The Boshy, and Shovel Knight.

    P.S. Hmu if you'd take a newbie in for development for a game. I'm in desperate need of experience, as show by me buying GMS2 3 days ago.

    Thanks for reading my life!

    Hello, everyone. My name is Lucas and I'm totally new to Game Maker. I don't have any IT background but I work within game localization. I'd like to learn some more things about making games, using GM and maybe even make a little game by myself one day.

    Name: Kyon
    Age: 23
    Where you're from: The Netherlands
    How long you've been using Game Maker: 10 to 12 years or so. (GM6.1) (an on and off relationship haha)
    Any cool games you've made:
    The only game I every "finished" was this game for YoYoComp06: https://tinyurl.com/y77ur6nf . Which was when gamemaker tried that PSP export.
    I guess the game I've been working years and years on was "Dirkels" which was quite popular on the old forums. But this was just my way of learning gamemaker, I redid that game countless times, like, starting from scratch again all the time and using new skills and codes I learned while making the previous Dirkels. The latest demo is here: https://tinyurl.com/y9z933nz (mind that that latest demo is atleast 4 years old)
    I probably never finish Dirkels haha. At the moment I'm working on some cool projects though, one is "From Here On" and storydriven game about social anxiety and some sci-fi elements. But mostly at the moment I'm working on "The Magic Bowman" which will be an adventure/action-platformer with some cool comedy ideas I have.
    The game started out as a test project because working on From Here On for over 5 months really broke me haha. I started on Bowman a month ago and it feels more like a game than from here on was...
    You can read about my games on my twitter, I tent to update them at least once or twice a week.

    Personality Type: INFP-T

    Other things about yourself:

    I'm a musician. As in, I have a band, we perform a lot, and I study music. My end goal is to make music for movies and games (which is what my study is about).
    If anyone is interested, this is my band: http://shermanoaksband.com/releases
    We recorded our first EP last year in Los Angeles, which was a life-changing experience.

    Hello everyone!
    I'm Elena, I'm from Italy, and I've only just started learning GML. I'm familiar with C++ and html and I've taken a few classes about informatics and programming at university. I decided to take up game making to create a small RPG as a gift to a friend, and also because when I was a child I used to say I wanted to become a videogame programmer when I grew up, so I'm sort of keeping a promise. Looking forward to learning!

    Hello I'm Misty, and I'm a Narcissist, because I want nothing more than to play videogames with my mom.
    Also a narcissist because I stand up to people who bully me, also a narcissist because I look down on people who don't like pizza. Basically, if you don't like pizza, Houston we have a problem here.

    Hello, everybody. My name is ROman POkorny (that's the reason why you can call me ROPO), I'm 16 years old and when I'll grow up, I want to be a game designer. The problem is that It's little bit hard, because I live in Czech Republic and there isn't such a big "boom" about games. But still, I want to learn a design (2D and 3D) and by that I want to work with some american people :).
    I'm still working in GameMaker 1.4. I have a sensitive relationship with that, because I was really excited about it. I made 3 games in total. I also had other projects, but they still were unfinished and they weren't so cool. I made 2 games when I was a little kid (in 8.1. version ;) ) and 1 I guess 6 months ago. I was so proud of myself that I made something like this. It was jist so wonderful. And I want that feel back!
    So I want to try something: If you want some pixel-graphic design of something, write down here under this status and let me show you my graphic style. I hope I can fit into this community, because IT IS one of the best communities I've ever seen in my life.
    I'm really excited of your reaction at me and thanks for your time, If you've read it into the end :).
    Thank you.
    -Roman Pokorny.

    Hello!

    Let´s introduce myself using the "standard" format:

    Name: Alberto
    Age: 38
    Where are you from?: Spain, but I live in UK since 2010.
    How long have you been using Game Maker?: since 2016
    Any cool games you have made?: Doomsday Lost Echoes, a text adventure for the Amstrad CPC.

    Other things about yourself: nothing very special I guess. I am a biochemist, I live in Oxford and I have been reading these forums for a long time until I finally decided to register :).

    That is the miracle of the Internet and the English language. Your english is very well so you should have no problems.

    Hey guys, relatively new to Gamemaker and extremely new to game development (I keep changing my 'ideal career'....)

    Any cool games you've made: Working on an interactive poem, and a much larger project (I'm an ambitious newbie). The main cool thing about anything I make is just the fact that everything's traditionally painted really (was a self-proclaimed artist before)
