Welcome to my account!
I am a young aspiring game developer and have been coding for a really long time. I currently use GameMaker Studio 2 for development.
My current projects:
If you look over to the right you will see Gravity Well, my first project on itch. It was not made with GMS2, but with Godot. It taught me a lot about how proper game development is done.
My Game-making History:
I have always had a passion for coding in general, I find it's logical and structured nature very fun to work with. Making games with it is the cherry on top. The first games I made were with Scratch and MIT App Inventor (drag-and-drop based game engines) when I was 9. Then, my dad showed my Xcode, an apple-based app for developing apps for apple-based devices (That's a mouthful). For 2 years, I used Xcode to make some games, but eventually, I realised I did not want to be stuck making games for only apple-based products, so I searched for a better game engine. First I looked at Unity, a game engine I had heard of quite a lot, but I was put off by it's (seemingly) complex nature. I went to Godot, and found it quite useful, but put off by the lack of famous games made with it. Lastly, I went to GMS2, an engine I knew had been behind Undertale, Hyper Light Drifter, Heat Signature, and Hotline Miami. Now, here I am!
