Description

Become a Game Developer in 2 hours with Game Maker: Studio

Learn Game Development with Game Maker: Studio, and in just 2 hours become a Game Developer!

In this course, we use Game Maker: Studio. It has been discontinued by YoYo Games so you no longer can get a new licence. Only existing users from before the release of GameMaker Studio 2 can use GameMaker: Studio.

The Course is structured this way:

  1. First I introduce you to all important elements of the software.
  2. Then I teach you how to create these 2 games: An Arcade Shooter and a Top Down Shooter.
  3. Then there are little quizzes after every section ends, which helps you remember what you were taught.
  4. NEW BONUS: A Game Project at the end of the course. It will help you learn Game Maker: Studio more effectively. There is simple explanation along with every line of code. Further you can change the game and make it yours!

I use simple coding to create games. The programming language used in Game Maker: Studio is called "Game Maker Language", often abbreviated as "GML". GML is in fact very simple, which is an advantage as it is easy to learn and you can easily master it.

This course will help you become a game developer. Further, you can create your own games, and you can even sell them, so you can actually earn with games. You just have to start from somewhere; and this is where you start.

Further, I am always ready to help you. You can always get your doubts cleared just by messaging me.

Either you want to learn game development to earn, or to just unleash creativity - this course is for you!

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is perfect for anyone who has never developed games but is looking for an easy & best way to create games
  • If in the future, you want a career in Game Development, then this course is for you!
