GameMaker: Studio

GameMaker: Studio 2.2

Creates 2D games using Drag and Drop environment

Teaches you how to create and program a game from ground zero to finish, using the integrated tutorials. The created games can be exported to Windows desktop, Mac OS X, Ubuntu, Android, iOS, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The main operation or the most used will be Drag and Drop, a very simple way to create a game.

Game Maker is a program to develop games without programming.
With drag-and-drop actions, it allows you to create games in few time, using backgrounds, animated graphics, music and sound effects.

You can use the Lite Edition for free, if you want more complex functions, you will need to upgrade to the Pro Version.

You can even sell the games you produce.

Game Maker lets you use its ready made sprites, background, music, objects and rooms, or design your own. You can even use its ready made games to learn from them, or adapt them to your project.

You can use the built-in script editor to fine tune your game, and you can save your work in progress in its native .gmk format. Once everything works fine, you can compile the source code to make and executable that everyone will be able to run.

The program lets you design screen with information about the game, import and export scripts, search for specific values in the code, run the program in normal or debug mode, and more.
