Create your own computer games

Have you ever fancied having a go at creating your own computer game but don´t have the programming knowledge? If so, take a look at Game Maker.

Game Maker requires no prior understanding of programming or game creating experience. It simply requires you to cut and paste elements into a game much as if you were using a word processor.

Game Maker is very much community-driven meaning there is a thriving forum of users and reams of user manuals to help you get to grips with it. YoYo Games offers eight clearly explained lessons to get you started.

This is not to say you'll be able to create great games in minutes. Game Maker still takes some getting used to and learning. Game Maker is also limited by size - once your creations reach a certain size, you can't develop them any further although for beginners, it will be a long time before they get to that stage.

Game Maker is an interesting project that provides a great platform to take your first steps into game creation.

Have you ever wanted to be able to design computer games, but didn't want to spend countless hours learning how to become a programmer? Then you've come to the right place. Game Maker is a program that allows you to make exciting computer games, without the need to write a single line of code. Making games with Game Maker is a lot of fun. Using easy to learn drag-and-drop actions, you can create professional looking games within very little time.

You can make games with backgrounds, animated graphics, music and sound effects, and even 3d games! And when you've become more experienced, there is a built-in programming language, which gives you the full flexibility of creating games with Game Maker.

  • Lots of instructions and user forums
