    How long you've been using Game Maker: Started using it around 2009 / 2010, but haven't used it for some years.

    Other things about yourself:
    Software Developer for a living (first Backend Developer, currently Embedded Developer). Came back to the community due to nostalgia regarding GameMaker (although I don't think I'll be using it again... don't want to have a Windows machine and don't want to go through the trouble of trying to add compatibility layers in Linux for using the IDE) and since I hope the community is still half as good as it was before. I've had several accounts throughout the years (both in the old GMC forum and in the current one) but I no longer have access to the login details of my old account in order to ask for it to be reactivated so I decided to have a fresh start. Hope to get back into game development in the near future, in which case I'll be back to relying heavily on this community once again.

    Where am I from?: New Orleans, Louisiana :) (jazzy town :cool:)
    How long have you been using gamemaker: about 5 or so years if I remember correctly,
    Personality type: INFJ-T (it's kinda wack how many people have similar personalities on here but I guess that makes sense)
    Cool things I've made: uhhhhhh....I'm really bad a finishing projects...but I've made about 2-4 small little games.
    Future things to create: I'm setting my sights on some bigger, RPG style games now that I'm more confident in my programming abilities!
    Other things about myself: I love to play music and draw, I'm not super good at either of those, but I do enjoy doing them. I've been interested in game design for about 5 years now and I am currently studying computer science in the hopes of furthering my skills as a programmer. I try to be as friendly as possible so feel free to reach out to me if you want a friend or if you maybe need some basic programming help (though I'm by no means a pro programmer), I'll help if I can :).

    Waaaaaay back in like 2008 - 2009 on the old YoYoGames site, I was called NewMetra Creations. Man how quickly time passes! I went looking for the old sandbox site to hopefully grab some of the games I had made, but it appears to have been shut down quite some time ago. Oh well.

    Any cool games you've made: https://darkera-studios.itch.io/jolt-fully-charged I mean, I think it's a pretty cool game.
    Personality Type: The personality test says I'm a "Turbulent Adventurer." Okay then. >_>

    Other things about yourself: I'm still rocking Game Maker Legacy. You know, like Game Maker 8.1? From 2010-ish? I own Game Maker Studio 2, but haven't made the switch yet. After work on Jolt: Fully Charged is done, I figured I'll lay the old girl to rest. I work with a small group of other individuals going under the name Darkera Studios.

    Hi. I am Marius from Norway. Been using Unreal Engine for a while, but decided to try out Game Maker since all my favorite games the last couple of years was made in it. I really liked it, and so I bought the Desktop version. I've made lots of small game-jam stuff in Unreal Engine, but I want to try to make my first complete game now, and Game Maker seems like the perfect choice. Also, I can do everything on my Mac Laptop, which I could never dream of doing with Unreal Engine, so now I can lay back in my couch and watch Mike Matei on Twitch while making games. Awesome!

    Me: I used to work as a sound engineer in a studio, and a lighting engineer at concerts. I grew tired of that and decided to re-educate myself and now I am a full-time Computer-Engineer student. In my spare time I make chiptune music using 3 Commodore 64s. I also like to stay fit, so I run in the mountains a lot, and I train thai-boxing.

    Favorite game: R-Type 3 Lighting Strike for SNES.
    Favorite game music: Golden Axe for Commodore 64.

    Anyway, nice to meet you all!

    Hi I'm Skeletor, He-Mans older sibling. He got the looks and I got the bony yellow complexion. But the chicks dig it, so I can't really complain.

    My cat is way tougher than his though.

    Hi everyone, I'm Y3KSteven and I'm from the past, despite what my username might say. I've been using GM since 5.1 back in the good ol gamemnaker.nl days, and have never completed a single project! Hooray! I'm currently working on a new project (which is a revamp of an old idea) = An adventure/survival (with full story) crafting RPG set on a distant planet.
    Anyways, nice to meet everyone, and it's good to be "back"

    Any cool games you've made:
    I've made a lot and finished very little. Some of it is still lurking around the web but nothing worth sharing here.
    I typically work on 2D Platformers. I'm hoping to eventually create something original...and actually finish it.

    How long you've been using Game Maker: Approx. 6 months
    Any cool games you've made: I made a chess-inspired puzzle game, but lost it to a hard-drive crash :'( Now I've been working on small simple games just to get some experience under my belt! Being too ambitious when first learning to make games can kill creativity, so I'm currently working on the GML-equivalent of "doodling" :)

    I do have some big ideas brewing which will likely take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years each to complete, varying from Metal Gear inspired stealth arcade puzzles to cyberpunk JRPGs to a fantasy-style Oregon Trail type of game.

    Other things about yourself: I have too many interests to keep track of. I've been filmmaking for 15+ years working on a variety of short films. I love skateboarding but as I get older the risk of injury limits my interest in pushing my skateboarding skills. I've always loved drawing, sewing, and anything visual. I love camping, hiking and the outdoors.

    I realized that the only thing I watch on YouTube is videos about games and game making and figured I should start applying myself. None of my friends are gamers or anything closely related to being "nerds." They all skateboard, are active, adventurous, and will only sit at a computer unless necessary. For this reason, I've always limited my interest in gaming but lately I'm finally saying f**k it! I want to do what feels right for me :) I'm super social and outgoing and looking to build some friendships through this community! Please don't be afraid to send a message, say hi, and share ideas :)
