GameMaker Advanced

Take your GameMaker to the next level with professionally scripted games

If you've taken our previous GameMaker course, this is a great next step if you'd like to work on more professional and advanced games.  You'll learn much more advanced techniques, starting with creating your own version of the classic Lunar Lander game. After that, we move rapidly onto GML, GameMaker's own scripting language to create other games such as a two-player tank game.  GML is a language dedicated to creating games using GameMaker, but being a 'C-like' language, and having similarities with higher-level languages like Javascript, it's a great way to start delving more in-depth into programming and learning transferrable skills.

FAQs

My child has no prior experience - can they still attend?
Yes! We don't assume any prior knowledge for our courses.  The only exception is if when we run followup courses that are labelled as 'Advanced' or 'Level 2' that normally require the prior course to have been taken.  Do ask if you're unsure.
Five Stars The online course was great and the tutor engaged with the children and helped them calmly and effectively - we were not needed at all. My son really enjoyed the course and did all of the extra challenges too.
