About the Instructor
Hi, I'm Gurpreet S. Matharoo! I've been teaching game development for years, and making games for longer. I've taught over 5 courses on Udemy, published numerous tutorial posts on my blog, and regularly create free tutorials on my YouTube channel, GameMakerStation. I also work at YoYo Games as the Technical Writer for GameMaker.
About the Course
Whether you're a beginner with no coding background, or a game developer looking to gain more experience; this course will help you get where you need to be. We're gonna go through many practical lessons, learning something new at each step!
Here are some things we'll be learning in this course:
GameMaker Language basics
Player movement with pickaxe
Breaking objects with pickaxe
Setting up data with arrays and enums
Stacking inventory using data structures
This course is based on v2.2 of GameMaker Studio, but includes updated lectures communicating the structural changes introduced in v2.3.
You'll be given a download to the finished project, along with all the resource files used. You can simply use the given images to build the game, so that you don't have to create your own sprites.
I'm looking forward to you joining the course. Let's start our journey!
Who this course is for:
- Anyone looking to get into game development for the first time
- Beginners in game development or GameMaker
- Developers somewhat experienced in GM but looking for more learning opportunities
