Our friends at the Penn State Great Valley School of Professional Studies are pleased to host this meetup of Philly GameWorks!
The topic for the evening is an introduction to GameMaker Studio from YoYo Games with Amanda Lange. Amanda is one of our local Technical Evangelists from Microsoft eager to help you learn to make and publish games.
This tool helps you make games that you can publish directly to the web or many mobile and desktop platforms. GameMaker has concentrated on animated 2D games and has scripting support for advanced game logic. It also has a robust eventing system that lets you connect events to actions all within the toolset to keep you focused on your game development as much as possible.
This is no amateur game engine as hit games such as Risk of Rain, Spelunky, and Hotline Miami were all created with GameMaker.
Join us as we expand the tools we have to make games and continue laying the foundation for you to publish your first game!
