Over the last ten years or so I have written many books on game programming, and have completed over two-hundred game projects.
During that time I have learnt GML coding to a reasonable level, and have picked up many skills, tips and tricks and methodology for making games in GameMaker & Game Maker Studio 2.
The purpose of this book is to provide you with some of the knowledge that I have acquired. I make no claim that I’m the best coder or designer, but I do have a proficient understanding that I would like to instill on other budding game makers.
Unlike previous books of mine that focused mainly on the actual GML code, this book covers the full design progress, along with in-depth explanations, examples, and project for commonly used code.
