This course is beginner-friendly, however it also contains advanced concepts. It is beginner-friendly in the sense that I explain everything I do so that no one feels lost. The advanced concepts allow you to do more in GameMaker. So, you can take this course regardless of your skill level!
The style by which I teach is to-the-point without any filler or unnecessary talking. I get things done quickly while explaining stuff comprehensively.
