[NOTE] This book was written for GameMaker Studio 1.4. A large portion of the general programming principles in this book will carry over to GameMaker Studio 2 but there are some differences. Keep that in mind before purchasing the book.

Are you ready to build your game? GameMaker Studio is a professional development engine used to build games like Hyper Light Drifter, Death's Gambit, Risk of Rain,  and many more.

These great games show the power of this tool but the very best part of GameMaker Studio is that it's one of the best places for new indie game developers to begin their journey. It is where I started and I have loved every second of it. Helping you on this journey is my goal with this book.

This book was written for GameMaker Studio 1.4.
