OK this is only the first bit but the full project will be on a power point for you to download this week so please dont be leaving comments saying this instructable is rubbish or saying there is no information on it. it takes a few hours to make the game and even longer for me to explain it. i will try to finish it as soon as possible.

THE NEXT STEP WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO MAKE A VERY SIMPLE GAME.''

Step 2: A very simple game

First we have to add sprites( these are images that will appear in the game) to add a sprite
1.right click on the sprite folder and click add.
2.a box will appear and you need to click on load.
3.chose an image for the game bored. (a gray block looks best for this game)

do the same again only instead of adding a gray block add a picture of a ball or another picture that you want. the ones you get free with game maker are best. i used a small football in one of the sprite folders.
1. right click on sprites again and click add.
2.load another image of a ball
3.now there should be 2 images in the sprites folder.

it was a helpfull material......

Sorry for my links not working, they were

for 3d rad

You can make and 3d cool loking race game with 3d rad in 1-2 hours (including learning) official site: http://www.3drad.com/ which is free ; some examples;

If you look for something more professional, you can go for: polycode (completely free and superstrong but needs hell lot of programming skills and experience);

http://polycode.org/ ; Unity, strong and with easy to use editor requires less programming experience

http://unity3d.com/unity which has free and pro versions (pro is around 1500 usd) but you can create and even sell games with free version, example game

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xaTS5UF_2yI (even there is contests you can win pro version of unity) and lastly unreal engine

https://www.unrealengine.com/

which has no free version (you can have 1 year free if you are student) but it is only 19-20 usd per month+ %5 of revenue if your game is sold over 3k usd , i can count : Mass Effect, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas, Gears of War etc. Unreal engine is said to have less programming knowledge requires compared to unity by some users (??) Well all these: Polycode, Unity, Unreal Engine, CryEngine are top engine you can create AAA games with (i dont know anything about CryEngine other then Crysis is created with it), but i am using the engines i listed for a while and my favourite is unity free so far.

Why you don't take a look in visual studio, XNA tool will help you make a simple game maybe in 5 minute, and 15 minutes to learn something simple about it. It's very helpful.

Hey. Amazing tutorial, easiest I've seen. Gonna make a game soon, but, I wanna know if there's a way to make a sprite (like a character) jump, move, duck and stuff. I'm kinda making a game like the old Sonic the Hedgehof games. But is there a way to make a character jump up onto objects and such? Like bouncing off a spring or jumping up steps? And is there a way to create cutscenes or make people talk with each other? Or is that too complex for this game maker?
You're probably better doing that in flash, but you can do it in GameMaker. Set an event, if key is pressed, make character change image. So if the up key is pressed your character changes image into his "jump pose". You can set the gravity, and at collision with the floor object, he changes back. Same thing for everything else.
Yes there is o know this is an older comment but if you haven't figured out you just make the sprites and animation then use variables to set the main sprite change to the crouch and then have its own set of instructions that's what i did with my street fighter game.

When I start the Game Maker.exe, nothing happens but when I look at "Task Manager" it says that the program is running but I am unable to use it.
This was an amazingly easy tutorial. My cousin and I made a bucket list where you get 10 points for every time you finish a task. Our goal is to get at least 100 points by the end of the year and finish the list as soon as possible. Making a computer game was on the list, but I realized, considering our age (12 and 13), it's almost impossible. You proved it anything is possible when I began to doubt. Although the game is super simple, I'm proud of gaining experience at such a young age. I appreciate you posting a tutorial on this. The only tutorial I found, it's so thorough, even a baby can do it.

Hey my friends and I are going to make a game that's like a MMO except one player... I don't know how else to describe it other than like Poke'mon. Except really different. Could you please email me via ebag123@gmail.com on this? Thanks.
gernig Ebag1235 years ago
so a single player mmo... wounds like an RPG. learn your self some knowledge.
Maybe he meant a sandbox type game. That might be considered "an MMO only single-player". Or maybe he just didn't know what an RPG was. Learn yourself some politeness (and perhaps some punctuation).

-Y
Agreed. Isn't there a "be nice policy" ?
lmao i like that, "Learn yourself some knowledge"
right now im making a game somewhat like pokemon using a program called Scratch (scratch.mit.edu) very easy, made for kids (like me, lol :P) by MIT (Masechusets, er however u spell it Intstitute of Technlogy or something :) ) very fun and easy.
 that is funny. "a game that's like a MMO except one player"
:P Yeah... My friend and I are having some trouble with this... Anyone know of a program we can mess around in? Flash might work... we're working in it right now, but its not going too well...
You could use Adventure Game Studio (AGS). It requires learning a scripting language, but if you really want to make games you should be doing that anyways. It's really easy to learn.
