This course teaches students how to build a polished platform game in GameMaker Studio. Students will learn to program in GameMaker Studio's scripting language, GameMaker Language (GML).
If you are interested in game development, programming, level design, platform games, GameMaker, or indie game creation, this is the course for you.
It will take roughly 10 hours to complete this course.
The course is structured in a way that introduces the different concepts of GameMaker Studio one at a time. All of the lectures are video lectures except the very first lecture which contains a download link for the resources you will need in this course.
This course will build and strengthen your programming and game development skills. By the end of this course, you will be ready to tackle a variety of different video game projects using GameMaker Studio.
Because this course is for beginners, many people have asked me if it is good for children. I would recommend this course for children if they are at least 14 years old or if they already have experience in programming and enjoy math.
You must have a Windows operating system in order to take this course. If you are on a Mac you will have to install Windows on a virtual machine.
