I've been using this software for around 2 or 3 months. It may be tough to master, but it's in no way hard to use. For beginners, they have the easily simple drag-and-drop functions, but more experienced coders can simply type in the work. Best of both worlds! Anyway, I'm currentlly making a game of my own, and this is FOR SURE my go-to game engine to use!

"I can't believe I'm actually writing code!" - Me

I have a fundamental understanding of HTML and building web pages, but was always scared of getting serious with coding. Always wanted to learn but found it intimidating and I really just don't have the brain for it. I'm more creative/street/common sense smart than book smart.

Main reason I tried GM was because I've read some articles saying "No coding required!". Which is... true'ish. When I first started messing around in the program I became disheartened because it felt overwhelming. 21 hours later I created (with help) my first game. By "with help" I'm talking YouTube tutorials. Theres a guy there who's made incredibly helpful videos name Shaun Spalding - Your First Game. He breaks it down for you step-by-step and after a quick dozen videos you have a working game!

If, like me, you're wanting to nerd out and take a stab at coding your own game... this is it. You got this!

some of the greatest games were made with game maker, plus it doesn't require you to code every last detail (though, you're still going to have to code.)

Went from imagining what a video game made by myself would be like to creating videogames from the ground up by myself using extremelly helpful tutorials. One word, ThankYouGameMakerForMakingMyDreamComeTrue. Trust me, that's one word.

This software is amazing and I would highly recommend a YouTube search for "Shaun Spalding" for tutorials.
I am using GameMaker:Studio Pro to build my game Box Maze which was Greenlit and is coming to Steam in September 2016.
It has a bit of a hefty price but the features and usability along with Shaun's tutorials makes it quite worth it but I would recommend to rather grab it once it goes on special.
I would recommend to instead use GML with it and not rely on the in-app features to create functions for your object, this helps to add more variety and if you already know anything like HTML, java, or any other language GML should be easy to learn for you.

I give it a 7/10 (Looses points due to it being quite expensive)

GameMaker: Studio is amazing! I'm currently creating a game with some friends, I'll update the review when it's released. Haven't found a single glitch yet. Shoutout to HeartBeast on YouTube, cause with him, I would know NOTHING about this software. My only request is that you could use this on Mac, since that's what I have. I have a Windows 10 virtual machine though, so at least I can use it. :P
