~~ The Course ~~
In this course, we'll build our own game from scratch, using GameMaker Studio 2. This course is perfect for complete beginners, as you don't have to deal with any coding.
GameMaker Studio 2's Drag & Drop system makes it easy for anyone to create their own games. You can program your game using simple "actions", and add functionalities such as moving the player, collecting a power-up, killing an enemy, and much more.
While Drag & Drop is easy to use and get started with, it still takes a lot of practice and knowledge to use it effectively and build a complete game. This course will help you understand how GameMaker Studio 2 and Drop & Drop work, and in 2 hours, take you to a level where you can start creating your own games.
~~ The Instructor ~~
I'm Gurpreet Singh Matharoo, a professional GameMaker developer and instructor. I've been teaching game development for over 4 years and making games for longer than that.
I've taught GameMaker lessons on Udemy and Skillshare, and have a tutorial blog called GameDev Palace and a YouTube channel called "GameMakerStation" with over a thousand subscribers.
I also programmed Tubetastic World Splashfest (on Steam) and am actively working on another multiplayer project, both made in GameMaker Studio 2.
~~ Course Content ~~
The course is divided into separate sections, with lectures covering different topics.
The first two sections cover the basics of the interface of GameMaker, and some Drag & Drop theory.
After that, we jump into practical game development, by making an Arcade Shooter game from scratch.
Resources for the game (images and audio files) are provided, which you can use for making your game alongside the course.
So join in, and let's start making our game!
