Make an Action RPG in GameMaker Studio 2

A Beginner-to-Intermediate Step by Step Guide

This course teaches students how to build a polished Action RPG engine inside of GameMaker Studio 2 or GameMaker Studio 1.4. Although the course can be taken using GameMaker Studio 1.4 if you are new to GameMaker, I would recommend using GameMaker Studio 2.

Students will learn to program in Game Maker Language (GML).

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 2 one at a time. The majority of the course is made up of video lectures. Each lecture also contains a GameMaker Project file for the completed lecture.

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 2.

I'm dedicated to turning my students into professional GameMaker Studio developers. Teaching GameMaker is my passion and my full time job. I've been using GameMaker Studio for over 11 years. I've created several indie games and I even wrote, and published a book about GameMaker's scripting language, GML. My courses are fun, up-beat, and jam-packed with information about GameMaker. If you are a young, aspiring, indie game maker, you are in the right place!
