    I'm Digitalizer, nice to meet you all! I'm using Game Maker Studio 2 since august and I posted a demo of the game I'm making. :D It's name is, for now, Foxstorm, the same as the protagonist.

    I love programming, drawing and making game mechanics.

    How long you've been using Game Maker: 1 Week.
    Any cool games you've made: The Arena Shooter and BreakThrough GML tutorials.

    Other things about yourself:
    I was introduced to Game Maker like 10+ years ago back in college. I was never serious with it and quickly fell off. I love what I do for a living but 9 years behind a desk has left me feeling uninspired. I am attempting to rekindle my creativity and thought a medium where art, music and story telling are working together to create an experience would be fun. The game I am dreaming to make is a 2D, pixel art, escape room game with a good story behind it. Inspired by movies like Exam/Fermat's Room/Saw/Escape Room (2017). I'm looking to learn all I can here and working in GMS2 to slowly make this a reality.

    Hi everybody! Was so busy with looking at the forum and trying GMS2 that I forgot to introduce myself.

    Username: The Boy In The Attic

    Name: Michael
    Age: 46
    From The Netherlands, Utrecht (Born & Raised)

    Started using GameMaker Studio 2 last week, bought the Developer version and like it a lot!
    Never used GameMaker before, but like its real cool way of first trying the DnD and sneakpeak the code.
    Will try the basics with DnD for now and look at the code, but soon will dive in GML, as it seems to be
    a nice way to dive deeper in the engine. Also want to learn more of Esoterics Software Spine and use
    it in GMS2, bought the professional license today.

    My personal journey brought me to be an artist, digital and old-fashioned analog in airbrush and painting.
    Am great fan of playing games, producing music, music listening itself (Pink Floyd, Jean-Michel Jarre
    and many more) and playing guitar. Behind all that, I'm just a humble person that likes to be creative.

    Thanks for reading,

    Cheers,

    Michael

    Hi.

    I'm known as Robo4900 pretty much everywhere, though I never had an account on the OG GMC, so... Unless you hung around on the Yoyogames sandbox and played any of my one or two really damn terrible games I posted there, you probably won't recognise me.
    In any case, I first used Game Maker back in like the GM6 days, though I think I once found a copy of GM4 or 5 my brother had on an old PC somewhere, back before I got my own license.
    I seriously got into it around GM7, when I got my own license for it, and toyed around with it constantly for years. I was grandfathered in through to... Uhh... GM10, I think?... But I kind of fell out of it after that, and now I don't even know where I could in theory get an install of any of the GameMakers I have a license for... Still, these days, I'm more of a Unity guy anyway. :oops:
    I never released anything notable made in GameMaker; I tended to just not finish anything in GM. Well, except for a couple of crappy things I made when I was like 7, called Mr. Ice or something. I had a long-running platformer project for a time, but I eventually decided the idea wasn't fun enough to bring past prototyping and design, and Mark Of The Ninja kind of did everything I was hoping to do with it that was worth hanging onto, anyway, so I moved on.

    To be completely honest, main reason I registered here is I'm trying to dig up a copy of an old Game Maker game from the OG GMC days called Randomness, which I remember being a super-fun puzzle platformer, but I haven't played it in like 12 years (I think it's the one made by GizmoKidNeo); download was taken down not all that long after its initial release like 15 years ago, and I've never managed to find anyone who still has it, or even who remembers it. :(
    Last time I saw it was on a laptop that died years ago. I recall backing it up -- among other things -- to a disc, but I lost the disc, and I think it was mistakenly thrown out well over a decade ago.

    Hello I’m new to GMS2
    I’ve played around with a few engines but I’m mostly coming from construct 2/3

    I was kind of code averse for a while until I realized gml is quite simple compared to other programming languages and that it can be mixed with dnd which is cool.

    I’m mostly interested in messing around with creating platformer games.

    Hey guys,

    I'm Adam and Im 24 years old.
    Currently I'm studying philosophy and sociology at the Goethe-University in Frankfurt, Germany.
    I bought GM 1.4 back then but never used it.. it was a permament license and since this license doesnt cover gm2
    I have to stick with the trial version for now. Which is a shame because that feels like I threw my money away.

    Anyways, now Im super motivated to learn GM2 and build my very first game!
    This means I will probably need alot of help and need to research alot. Which is why I joined this forum.

    Cheers!

    I used to create games with game maker before yoyogames big switch to the new branding and website. I don't do a whole lot of that anymore, but I am dabbling in the game maker platform again. Also in my spare time, I create techno and chiptunes using Beatwave and FamiTracker. I used to write songs with the intention of using them in videogames, but they are sort of just sitting in cyberspace now. Hit me up if you are into electronic music or chiptunes!

    Hello, my name is Germán and I'm not from Germany. I'm a 40 years old software development and always wondered about game making, this year I've resolved to start making games and my journey took me here, to gamemaker studio 2 and this community. So, to cut it short, I just wanted to present myself and get to know you people the GMCommunity, cheers and pleased to meet you.

    PS: Here's a gif of the game I'm currently working on, not sure where's it going to go from here, just trying to find out what I can do in gm and figuring out stuff, how to translate an idea into some gameplay...

    Welcome to the GMC!

    Looks like you've made a good start with your learning with your first game, it reminds me of Minit from the art style.
    Good luck and have fun making games with GMS2!

    Yeah! You've made a good start, I guess you're pretty experienced in other things so learning gml won't be too hard, and it's great the way it's built all for making games

    I'm getting a message saying "You need 5 posts to add links to your posts! This is used to prevent spam." As such, I guess I need to spam everyone 5 times before I can post links :p

    Where you're from: I live in Washington, but I'm originally from Arizona
    How long you've been using Game Maker: I first used it about 10 years ago, but I haven't been using it constantly that whole time or anything
    Any cool games you've made:
    • Using GameMaker, Open Ocean (Available now on itch.io, and on Steam June 11th, 2019): https://allyproductions.itch.io/open-ocean
    • Not using GameMaker, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Middle-Earth: Shadow of War. I've also worked on about a half dozen games as a QA tester before that.
    Personality Type: Other than being an introvert, I have no idea :)

    Other things about yourself:

    I like drumming, making and playing games, and watching movies and shows with my friends. I used to enjoy indoor rock climbing, but my wrists are getting old :p

    Hi everyone, I'm bunny or Alyssa I guess. I don't really have any experience in gamedev or programming, anything technical other than building my own computer honestly. I'm here because I've always loved video games, always loved the idea of making games and have always been plagued with idea after idea. There's been one specifically that won't stop nagging me and I guess I've finally given in and hope to make it a reality, eventually. GMS seemed to be really beginner friendly but also quite capable so I chose to start here.

    I guess it helps that some of my more enjoyed games of the past few years (Undertale, HLM, Nuclear Throne) were made in GMS.

    Welcome to here, Bunny. Good luck with your idea. Use the manual and this forum, and you should have few problems. (Also, googling for answers works pretty good too, when you get stuck.)
