Game Maker: Crash Course materials are online, open to the public on Google Docs.
Here’s what you get:
Presentation slides. Be sure to read the notes, there is actual information. More than would fit into the talk itself!
Space Invaders Kit. All you need is Game Maker installed and you can build it yourself! A great way to get started. Includes:
- starter project file,
- final project file,
- final project .exe build,
- sprite images,
- sound files.
- step-by-step instructions for how to do it!
- project specification document — a good way to start out any project is to document what you want it to be. Follow this as a template for your own designs!
