Packt video courses are designed to cover the breadth of the topic in short, hands-on, task-based videos. Each course is divided into short manageable sections, so you can watch the whole thing or jump to the bit you need. The focus is on practical instructions and screencasts showing you how to get the job done.
This course is a step-by-step walkthrough that will showcase GameMaker: Studio and Game Maker Language (GML) through a series of small, practical examples. You'll begin with an overview of the UI and interface to familiarize yourself with how things work, and steadily work your way towards building a platformer.
This course is perfect for people just getting started with GameMaker: Studio. No previous knowledge of GameMaker: Studio is required, and any experience in game development would be handy, but not vital.
