    How long you've been using Game Maker: Er... two months.

    Any cool games you've made:
    I just finished my first functioning, complete, non-Asteroids, exactly-as-I-envisioned-it... PROTOTYPE for a game I want to make! I know, I know, but it's a big deal for me; it took me a whole month, and this is a single-level prototype you can beat in ten minutes if you do literally everything and three if you run straight to the boss without talking to anyone, picking up any notes, or fighting any enemies that aren't directly in your path. Granted, I'd probably have been able to finish it a lot faster if I'd just stuck to the tutorials instead of saying things to myself like, "Self, let's use tile collision instead of object collision. Everyone says I'll be using that for most of my collision checks so I might as well get used to it now. And I want a gun I can map to my favorite shooting face button, which means mouse-aiming is out... and I want multiple types of enemies with different behavior... and I want to be able to go in and out of rooms in the background, and I want a cutscene of the heroine driving her old van, and I want a big boss at the end that floats, swoops, and fires homing projectiles..." because this often meant I had to break tutorial code up into little pieces and rearrange/rewrite the pieces into horrifying Frankenstein spaghetti that's probably going to come to life and digitize me in my sleep (but does what I wanted it to do without crashing).

    Personality Type: Every other time I've taken this test, I've gotten the Engineer, but this one gave me the Architect instead. I therefore declare my personality type to be Sobble.

    Other things about yourself:
    If this has taught me anything, it's that I still have a LOT to learn. My next goals are a) get comfortable with state machines, as the other bosses I have planned are way more complex than "swoop and spit glowy orbs," and b) get more control over the camera, as the ones I have work.. okay, but there are places I had to muck around with enemy placement because the camera was hiding them, and I'd like to avoid things like that in the future.

    Other things about yourself: Hello I am Shellephant! I went to a university to study game design and managed to get an associates in computer science. To be honest, I'm still rather inexperienced and have loads to learn. I've been working a 12 hour shift at an auto plant to pay off my student loan, so it does not leave me with a lot of free time to work on my game. Any help and support ya'll could provide me would be very much appreciated!

    I wanna introduce myself :)

    My pseudonym is Ashiné Subtlety.
    I am 21 years old a beginner game developer.

    My goal is create a PC and Mobile game named Soulbeast.
    Game idea is:
    2D Action Hack and Slash RPG
    but... here is long … long way to reach this goal :)

    I got my first experience with GMS 2 from the hospital when I had an epileptic seizure and I was on neurology for 14 days.
    I was intrigued and I had the dream of creating a game once, but unfortunately there was no time for that.
    Now I'm on sick leave because I can't work yet. I have to keep the rest regime before surgery.
    Now I dedicate and learn how to handle GMS 2 correctly, how to create graphics, etc ...

    Now I want to show you my little creation when I tried to understand the logic of RNG and the percentage chances of eg critical hits etc ...

    I will be very happy if you spend a few minutes of my time on my Patreon site, where I also published my first project, which tries to describe and test this logic.
    It is available for download in rar format. You can look at it and use it for your purposes.
    I am interested in your opinion, any tips on how and where to learn programming better.
    Since I do not have the money for the license nor for online courses, I rely on free tutorials.
    I would like to continue to do this and continue, because I really enjoy it and it is a very interesting world for me.

    Thank you.

    Project can be found on: https://www.patreon.com/posts/my-first-game-2-34190066
    I would like to know your opinion.
    If you are interested I will be glad if you spend a few minutes of my time on my Patreon site.
