This is a reintroduction and it is a pleasure I'm sure.

I'm a project manager, architect and designer, city planner and developer, and medical specialist, who also specializes in self-awareness and relationship management.

I'm especially skilled at property and risk management and communications. I'm also an information broker, and I've studied many different empirical topics.

Name: Brooke
Age: 24
Where you're from: United States
How long you've been using Game Maker: A little over a year now.
Any cool games you've made: I'm currently developing my first game (check my handles below).

Other things about yourself: Nothing out of the ordinary except that I plan to begin homesteading in a few years.



I am a middle-aged GM:S 1.4 user from the USA. I started using GameMaker: Studio years ago, around the end of 2014. Since I was just getting started with game development, I liked how approachable GameMaker's tutorials made the learning process.

My favorite type of video game is the turn-based RPG, so I have spent most of my development time working on RPGs. I have been warned about how difficult RPGs are to make, but since I didn't have much desire to make any other type of video game, I worked on RPGs anyway. Nowadays, I do feel OK about working on other types of games.

My favorite aspects of game development are gameplay design and music composition.

Hello All,

Im fresh to this. 5 months now in trying my hand at 2D platformer coding. Unreal engine for me just to insert your own sprites was a headache it seemed and i got no where fast smh. Unity was OK for a while until coding simple script basic movements got annoying. I Got my character to run, jump and attack (even enemies moving) but Just to get my character to crouch was like a science project to pull off so i left that alone to try a different path. So here i am now at Game maker studio 2. Originally i was going to get it anyway before the other tools (since i heard it was best for 2D projects) but the price tag turned me away so i went to Unity Free for a good 3 months. Then some things fueled me to Return and to get the full license of GMS2 for the Windows UWP. I got tired of holding money anyway for a PS5 ill never get it seems plus Unity was becoming a drag just to code on it so here i am. The goal in the end is having my first game either on steam or xbox one. Its an investment

I have a ton of ideas. i draw. i sprite a bit. got more familiar with coding but i think i can really pull off something great if i can just get the wheels going in the right direction with this engine. So with that said can anyone point me in a solid right direction of docs and tutorials on Basic 2D platformer building? You know for full dynamic movement? run, jump, crouch, attack etc? So far i got my sprite to move horizontal and jump and thats it. I started last night. it seems easier to script this stuff on GMS2 than it is Unity but importing your own PNG sprites on GMS2 seems a bit off at times. on and off distortion

Anyway thats my rough introduction. ill be around the forum trying to learn the engine

HI! I haven't been in the forums since the forums were migrated from the old site. I'm a database person, but been doing side projects since I was a teen in GMS. Fun stuff.

Username: AnthonyRose

How long you've been using Game Maker: I started using it all the way back when GMS1 was made free but didn't use it for long and forgot about it, I started to use it again last year soon after the bad virus stuff happened and been learning how to actually use it and all of that since then.
Any cool games you've made: Only one which currently is in beta and it's called Moldermind

Other things about yourself: As a solo developer I learned how to do simple and small pixel art, chiptunes and retro sound effects. When I decided to start with game development I saw game maker (GMS1) as the better option for me, especially because when I obtained it, it was free at the time.

I’m both an autist and an artist, been gaming since I was 3-4, work at some solar panel company now but would love to try to make at least some living off one of my passions.

Have been trying to learn some music but haven’t got very far.​
