April 24th, 2014

A fix for the issues brought into Steam’s latest client API preventing external SDKs and build tools to be called within GameMaker: Studio has now been pushed to Steam’s public client beta prior to being released live.

Anyone can access the Steam client beta, so for instructions on how to opt into the beta, please see here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/SteamClientBeta/discussions/1/864957817328247556/


A huge thank you to everyone for their patience while we looked into this and to the guys at Valve for responding and fixing this issue so quickly!

Gamemaker: Studio™ Master Collection
Bringing all of GameMaker: Studio™’s best features and modules together, GameMaker: Studio™ MASTER COLLECTION gives you the power to create, test, monetize and distribute games to iOS, Android, Windows, Windows Store, Windows Phone 8, OSX and HTML5.

Key features:


Dedicated, game-focused IDE
The GameMaker: Studio™ IDE has all you need to deal with fonts, sounds, images and music, as well as other resources needed to create a game. It enables you to define game entities (known as 'objects') and their behaviours in an intuitive, event-driven way and has an easy to use drag-and-drop interface.

Powerful scripting language
With GameMaker: Studio™'s built-in GameMaker Language (GML), you can control every last detail of your game – path finding, physics, object interaction, particles, data structures and more …
And should you find that even that is still not enough for your project, you can easily expand GameMaker: Studio™ by using GML, JavaScript and Dynamic-Link Library Extension Packages.

Multi-format export
When combined with format-specific modules, GameMaker: Studio™ can take your game's single codebase and produce ready-to-run executables and apps for multiple platforms, with a single click.
With modules already available for Steam Workshop, Windows, Windows 8, Mac OS X, iOS*, Android*, Windows Phone 8* and HTML5* - and more to be announced soon - GameMaker: Studio™ is the fastest and simplest way to develop multi-platform games for mobile devices, home computers and the Web.

The YoYo Compiler
Games written in Studio can now harness the full speed of the CPU with the new native YoYo Compiler (YYC), allowing projects to run up to 100x faster than before, across all native platforms supported by Studio. Unlocking new possibilities in CPU intensive areas such as artificial intelligence, procedural techniques, real time lighting, enhanced physics, real time geometry deformation, collision and data manipulation.

Shaders
Fully integrated, totally cross platform shader support allows you to write shaders once, and then deploy them on every platform that supports them. This powerful system allows full access to low level shaders, while still letting Studio do the heavy lifting and keeping totally cross platform. The built in editor has been extended to have full colour syntax highlighting and intelli-sense for shaders, making creation a breeze.

Source Control
GameMaker: Studio™ also includes a comprehensive source control scheme so that working on a project within a team is easier than ever before.
Currently incorporating Subversion (SVN), and with more solutions on the way, GameMaker: Studio™ is the only development tool your team needs to get things done in record time.

Developer Services
To help easily monetize games, we’ve given developers unprecedented access and removed the technical hassle of connecting them with some of the biggest advertisers, analytics and engagement services on mobile and web.

This is a quick, fun (if you like this sort of thing), and easy way to program simple games. I highly recommend you follow all the tutorials you possibly can. You will find that you will learn something new each time that you can add to your arsenal. So far this is how I am progressing.

The first day I made a simple click-the-moving-fruit game that even had sounds. Sure it’s simple, but it’s neat to be able to actually make something. I recently finished Pong by following a youtube series. I recorded my own voice going “boop” when the ball hits the paddles and an unenthusiastic “yaay” when you score a point. That alone cracks me up to no end. I find making games can be just as entertaining as playing them.

You can make some powerful games with this studio. Hotline Miami was made with it. I have no delusions that I will make the next indie hit, and I don't want to. I'm just happy to learn something new and make something of my own.

Starting game projects is easy – finishing them is hard. Great to make both easy, simple games in minutes for beginners, and tons of options for those who are willing to go one step further. The game maker community on Yoyogames is strong (well over 100 000 members) and very supportive. I highly recommend for you to try out this program, and I am sure that you will have great fun with it.

Gamemaker is a great tool for creating your own games. What is it? An all-inclusive development suite for 2D games. You can either create rules with a drag-and-drop interface, or write code in its scripting language, GML. Some programming knowledge and familiarity with C-based languages would be helpful, so that you can take advantage of Game Maker's scripting language GML right off the bat.

The limited version is free and gives you a limited amount of sprites, objects, rooms and such. But you can aways try it out and then upgrade to standard later. You can make games for PC and Mac. iOS and Android. It shouldn't take more than a couple of weeks to get the hang of Game Maker. It's very intuitive and there is a wealth of tutorials and scripts for it online.

You can try out a short game that i made with Gamemaker called ''Zombies vs Pixels'' it can be found in the Steam Workshop.
