I started programming back in September last year. I had just moved a few months prior and started a new job in a new state and was a little bored. I had always wanted to learn to program just because I have always been fascinated by computers in general. In fact I originally had plans to major in computer science but went a different route instead. GMS2 has been great since I really only get to program as a hobby. My first game was just out of being board to see if I could program a working game. Once I had something I gave my self a couple months to make it into something and Score Attack Ninja was born! Inspired by the arcade game Asteroids originally, and themed with an NES japanese style I always loved. Now I have another Score Attack Ninja game finished and am just having fun programming and making games in my spare time!
