What You'll Learn

We've broken down this course into easy-to-understand modules and lessons that you can revisit as many times as you'd like.

Get familiar with everything you need to make your game!

We've laid out all the tools and assets you'll need, and it's all free.

Learn the ins and outs of what goes into making a character.

The character is the most important part of a video game, so we'll want to spend plenty of time learning how to create great characters.

Explore all the options GameMaker Studio 2 has to offer to get our character moving around.

By the end of this module we'll have a character running and jumping around.

We'll also spend some time learning how to create animations (like fireballs) for our character.

Now that we have a character moving around the screen, let's build some spaces for them to move around in!

We'll go over how to create level layouts and add some fun mechanics to our environment.

Every game needs a title screen, and we can create ours using GameMaker Studio 2!

We'll also use GameMaker to save and load game data.

Giving the player goals is a crucial part of any game, so let's explore a few ways to do that in our games!

You'll learn all about collectibles, enemies, and creating big boss battles.

The difference between a good game and a great game is its audio.

You'll learn how to implement great sound, and we'll go over the best ways to add sound effects and music to add life to your game.

Much like sound effects, adding visual effects to our game makes the overall experience much better.

Even tiny visual effects can make a feature of the game come to life!

By the end of this course, you'll learn to add effects and animations your players will love.
