Have you ever wondered what does it take to develop a video game? Have you had a desire to develop a game, but you were afraid to step out. If you did, you are not the only one. In fact there are hundreds of developers who had same experience. To be honest, I used to be like you, and now I’m sharing my experience with you. I started my road on similar way by developing my first game in High School, and I kept collecting and putting together piece by piece of this puzzle. Today I am still expanding the whole picture and gathering new pieces of the puzzle, and I will keep doing that as long as I keep developing new games.
Luckily, here you can find tutorials in which you will learn how to develop games using professional game developing engine called ”GameMaker Studio”. As a tool for a game development beginner no matter of programming skills it posses, GameMaker is an ideal starting point. I recommend it because of easy to understand rules, simplicity, multiplatform development and time needed to get deep into game development world. You are able to create some serious games in this engine if you keep practicing and experimenting or if you gather a team of professionals. This games can make you earn money if you do everything right.
A lot of people all around the world takes this tricky but interesting and challenging way and some of them earn crazy amount of money. Many of them use GameMaker as a development engine, although each engine has its pros and cons. For this tutorial series, just to show simplicity of using this program, I won’t use scripts despite the fact that development with scripts would be even quicker. The reason why is my idea to empower everyone who wants to take a shot, and has no programming knowledge and experience to develop a game and also understand the game development concept. Because of that, I will put some extra effort to explain the simplest possible way for you how to develop a game. All you need to get going is a computer on Windows or Mac OS and GameMaker engine installed on it.
