GameMaker has its niche and does that very well!

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall, GameMaker is the easiest for simple games and it lets anyone who has a computer able to make a game!

Vorteile:

If you are trying to make a simple game like an 8-bit or platformer, this is the video game engine for you. It is simple and to the point making it easy to use this software for absolute beginners in the industry. You don't need a lot of schooling or experience to make a game. I really like how much of this can be sprite based as well. Anyone can edit images and make characters, items, etc based on sprites.

Nachteile:

With any niche software, there are some downsides. GameMaker is very limited on what you can do. It is a place to start making games, but once you want to move onto other ideas, it makes the transition to other engines hard. I also wish GameMaker had a common coding language instead of using its own. This helps prepare for the transition to other engines.

GameMaker: Studio is a great way to get a foot in the door of game design!

3,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall GameMaker: Studio is a fine tool for new developers, but it will eventually leave you wanting more, since it is quite a simple engine compared to its competitors.

Vorteile:

GameMaker: Studio was my first entry into the world of game making. It's drag and drop programming interface makes it easy to make simple games, while also having the skill-ceiling to create magnificent 2d-games. It's simple interface makes it easy for new developers to dapple in game making. It utilizes it's own programming language that is a form of simplified javascript, that features simple syntax.

Nachteile:

The ability to create 3D projects is lacking, and it's hard to recommend it over Unity, unless you are a complete novice to programming and game design. It does not provide the same capabilities as its competition, but maybe GameMaker: Studio 2 can make up for that.

my experience in GameMaker studio

4,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: In my general view, it is a solid program, and it contains many powerful tools for making and using games in more than one programming language. There are ready-made projects that you can practice with or use as a game and modify.

Vorteile:

From his point of view, GameMaker Studio is a wonderful program in the game industry because it contains a large amount of tools that greatly help in creating games for the Internet or for mobile, and it also contains more than one programming language that helps game makers choose the appropriate programming language for them, and the She has ready-made game projects. Use and modify them to make it easier for novice game makers.

Nachteile:

The price is not good for some people and the interface of the program looks difficult.

Great engine for light 2D projects

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall positive experience, it's great and lightweight if you know you're mostly going to be focused on smaller 2D projects, so it's great for indies and fast projects for game jams.

Vorteile:

GMS is great for an indie developer. You have the choice of a more visual approach to coding if that's not your stronger side, but GML is also quite intuitive to learn.

Nachteile:

Moving to a subscription instead of a one-time purchase might turn off people that considered GM as an alternative to something like Construct.

Once the gold standard for 2D, though no longer a clear a leader

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: It's fine as an introductory software for game development, but it's no longer the best choice even for that.

Vorteile:

Cross-platform functionality works quite well. Though somewhat counter-intuitive, development paradigm can work well for a limited set of game genres. The YoYo compilers are good.

Nachteile:

It's too expensive for the best features, and the switch between GameMaker Studio and GameMaker Studio 2 was not handled smoothly by YoYo Games.

User Friendly & Rich Community

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I got into GameMaker as a hobby, and find it very enjoyable, perhaps one day I'll upgrade to Unity or Unreal Engine, but for just learning and building for your own enjoyment, it's a great little software. There have been some super successful GM games released, so don't let it's limitations deter you.

Vorteile:

For an absolute beginner, this is a great tool to learn game design and coding language. Although it's GameMaker own language, GML, it shares a lot of similarities with other more universal coding languages, and is a good introduction to programming. Even if you have no desire to program, you can use GameMaker's built in drag-drop code features, that let you make simple interactions between objects. Using GM1.4, I successfully created a simple "balloon pop" app for android, so my daughter could play. IT had a lot of polish and GM made it relatively easy to build, and launch on the Android Play Store. I've since upgraded to GM2, and am working on a more robust game, and find the whole process very enjoyable.

Nachteile:

It is a very limited software, as it only handles 2D game applications, and the modules for launching on other platforms (iOS, android, etc...) are not cheap. There's also been some nvidia bugs, that cause it to crash occasionally, but GM2 has a decent auto-save system, and I've never lost any progress. Using repository services helps as well.

Game Maker is awesome

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: My experience with Game maker has been great, using it ever since I was 12 years old, stopped making games for some years and when I came back Game maker changed its landscape totally different, but for the better, with so much more cool features.

Vorteile:

Game maker is one awesome engine to make games, has tons of support, very easy to use and just start making games but also, it has a very big community, they host a game jam each year, which is also one of the biggest, you'll see so many creative and amazing games that you'll just love using game maker.

Nachteile:

Probably the only con would be the cost for exporting your game to other platforms, but it isn't really much of a con, basically its very affordable since it’s a onetime payment for life, which I love, you just have to be willing to make that initial investment.

Perfect for Independent Game Developing

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: I definitely recommend this software if you are looking to start somewhere in the indie game industry and are familiar with a little coding or still learning. A lot of professional programmers on our team love it and we have produced a couple of very well-received titles using it.

Vorteile:

GameMaker: Studio is very easy to learn and use without extensive knowledge of programming and there are plenty of in-software guides that provide information regarding the tools available within the software

Nachteile:

The only thing we would have preferred is a more simplistic layout, however, once you get the hang of where everything is, there is rarely any confusion.

Another fine game engine

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: It was pleasant to work with gamemaker. And openly speaking I would surely recommend it to others also. But they should work little bit more on 3d sector also

Vorteile:

I have used many different game engines and like others,it is also quite different from others. The best thing which I like about it is ease to arrange assets for the games(for example like in Gdevelop if you disturb the main folder where the assets were kept then assume that you almost lost your source code. But it does not happen here) Also there are inbuilt many features (especially for 2d game development) which I love from the core of my heart And last thing which simply blows my mind away is their community ( you can simply check on twitter) . The community is highly active and many users keep on posting what they are currently making in gamemaker

Nachteile:

The biggest issue is its cost . The thing which makes me furious is that one has to pay for different platforms ( different payment for mobile platform and different payment for desktop platform) And going ahead their own developed language-GML is not something which I really approve. In my opinion they should have used other language like lua etc Also the thing which sometimes scare me is its future. They have rarely talked about their roadmap for the game engine. And I strongly believe that they should do it And also they never focused on 3d sector (but their 2d sector is awesome)

As an animator/instructor I've both used and review courses on Game Maker Studio

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

Hands down, Game Maker Studio is one of the top development packages for making 2D games, and pretty good one for 3D games as well. In addition, as a beginner developer, you really cant beat the tools set offered in Game Maker Studio. Their visual scripting system couldn't be any easier and will allow you to piece together a game with little (or no) programming at all - a really awesome feature for those who are intimidated with learning a programming language. Fortunately, as expected, you can program within GMS as well, so the option is there if you need to go beyond what is offered with their visual node system. In addition, GMS is arguably the best bang for your buck when it comes to development engines. Hands down it beast the competition here, and this alone makes it stand out above any of its competitors.

Nachteile:

Sure, some of the 3D gaming features aren't as robust as other engines, but everything you need is here. Also, as strong as the visual node-based script system is, there are times where it cant do everything - no necessarily a con given how powerful and amazing this system is, but it is worth mentioning. Overall this is a great engine and should be considered by any beginner or indie developer.

Easy to use for beginners and experts alike

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: Put together new prototypes in hours or days rather than weeks or months.

Vorteile:

Drag and drop allows even novice programmers to get started. Those with more experience can quickly learn the programming language and throw together fully-functional prototypes in a matter of hours rather than the days or weeks it would take with other software.Easy deployment to multiple platforms including desktop, mobile, and more.

Nachteile:

There are a few smaller issues with the IDE, and some quirks to get used to. Once you overcome these, GameMaker: Studio is a valuable tool.

Great for beginners!

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall, GMS was a great software for beginners. It certainly can do great things as long as you have the patience to learn how everything works.

Vorteile:

GameMaker Studio was the first DND (Drag-N-Drop) software interface I ever used. It took a little getting used to before I built up enough trust to use the feature without hesitation. It is very easy to set up a game and see what the end result will look like.

Nachteile:

In the version that I began with, sprite editing could be a little tricky and time-consuming. I was told there were better ways to do than what I was doing, but at that time most of the tutorials were in Japanese and I could not read them.

Great for build games cheap and can do a lot in this engine

5,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: Well made a lot of games in the software for personal use, it is easy to use and a great little engine to start with as some of the bigger engines can seem very hard to understand.

Vorteile:

I like the fact you can add your own assets and objects with the level design editor in gamemaker. The programming is easy and can be picked up by anybody really and the power you can put into some of your games are great some amazing titles on the gamemaker showcase at the moment.

Nachteile:

Nothing bad to say really the ui could do with a bit of work and maybe the add ons could be cheaper but all round a great product.

Kommentare: Tried as an alternative for our web and mobile games

Vorteile:

GameMaker has a long history in the game engines market. It helps to create a game with little technical setup, and the result is good.

Nachteile:

It's not as powerful as other solutions. If you require more customization or even better performance, go with the other engines.

GameMaker: Studio is a great tool for creating 2D games

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

GameMaker has a lot of great libraries and can be used for projects of any size - We've used it for everything from minigames up to full-scale commercial projects.

Nachteile:

The export options are a bit deceiving - They claim to be one-click exports and should theoretically work out-of-the-box, but in the majority of cases you'll need to tinker significantly with the options and with optimizations to make it work.

Great engine for 2D game

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

The software is very easy to use. I recommend it for somebody that start in game making industry.

Nachteile:

The GML language is a weird language. I'm sure that if they go with an other language like c# in the future, the software will gain in popularity.

A simple game engine

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I worked on a game developed with gamemaker and it was pretty nice, the team could focus more on the visuals and mechanics than being worried about the algorithms and code.

Vorteile:

Is simple, and you can modify/customize the behaviors as much as you want/can. You can make a simple game way faster than any other engine without knowing being a programming guru.

Nachteile:

The first time can be very expensive as they sell every build module separated. Is only for 2D, so it can get behind other engines that can create more powerful projects.

Beginner game development app, easy to learn and easy to use.

Vorteile:

You just need a bit graphic design or programming knowledge to create your own projects. It's easy to use and there is a variety of tutorials to learn how to properly use it.

Nachteile:

You need to buy some formats to export your game to other platforms like HTML5, iOS and Android. For the ones that have more experience on programming languages, they will find some limits on the scripting language that the app uses.

Very good software to build games.

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

The best feature of this software is that you are able to create games easily and publish them to various platforms.

Nachteile:

Some of the licences are a bit expensive, but I assume that's acceptable since it offers the more complex features you only need if you are already selling the game or publishing to multiple plaforms.
