In addition to making games development 80 percent faster than coding for native languages, developers can create fully functional prototypes in just a few hours, and a full game in just a matter of weeks.
Focus on What Matters
Keep your focus where it matters with Studio's fast, efficient and intuitive approach to game development.
Studio's fully integrated development environment gives you the power to create professional games without any knowledge of programming. Already a pro? Then control every last detail of your game with Studio's built in scripting language, Game Maker Language (GML).
Import images, animations, audio and fonts with ease through Studio's Resource Tree.
Stay focused on keeping your games on time, on budget and most importantly, fun by testing instantly on device either tethered or wirelessly to allow fast iterations of your game.
The Studio Environment
GameMaker: Studio is highly intuitive. It has everything that you need to deal with fonts, sounds, images and music, as well as other resources that you may need for creating games. It enables you to define game entities, known as 'objects' and their behaviours in an intuitive, event-driven way and has an easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface.
With GameMaker: Studio's built-in scripting language control every last detail of your game - pathfinding, physics, object interaction, particles, data structures and more.
Assets are the visual and audible components that are used within your game. GameMaker: Studio™ provides you with all the tools necessary to import as many of these as are desired into your game.
Testing is one of the most important aspects of game development. If you want your game to be successful not only does it have to be fun but it also has to be bug free.
To help you have the best possible release of your game we have created some key features in Studio™ to specifically make it easy for you to play your game on a device before going through the process of creating an executable and to also track down any elusive bugs.
