If you like playing games but want to find out about designing your own, this is the perfect introductory course. Using GameMaker software allows you to create professional-looking games quickly.
You'll be using GameMaker's in-built GML visual system to start creating games without code. GameMaker has an in-built image editor for designing your own sprites (graphical characters), manipulating sound effects and even handling animations. GameMaker can be used for creating PC, Android, iOS and even HTML5 games.
You'll work through tutorials to teach you the core skills as you create two games - a maze-based game with "bots" and a simple platformer. After that, it's up to you to use what you've learnt to create your own exciting game with the help of your tutor.
