With the upcoming release of Game Maker Studio and html5, which both promise cross platfrom development for iOS and Android, I thought it would be worth spending some time, finally, checking out Game Maker. I’ve spent the last three weeks getting to know the environment by developing a shooter that has become quite the emergent little experience for me. I’ll be bringing it to the next Atlanta Game Dev Meetup this month.
So far the experience has been really great. One of the best things that’s happened is often I’ll set out to do something one way and after a while, usually through misunderstanding and mistakes, something better happens.
If anyone wants to take a look and has Game Maker installed, then just let me know. I don’t believe the lite version allows the making of an executable.
