The beginner tutorial "My First Game - Code": In this tutorial we explore the interface of GameMaker Studio 2 and learn about the different resources available to you for making games.

In the progress of the tutorial you will make sprites, create objects, build a room and end up with a simple but fun "arena shooter" game which you can then expand and build on.

This tutorial focuses on using GML to code the game, but the tutorial is also available for those users that prefer Drag & Drop, here

Great Intro for GML

After doing the DnD tutorial I was a bit hesitant to try to the GML. This tutorial was just as easy to follow and makes me want to learn more using GML. Thanks!

Enjoyed the second try at the same game design

I really enjoyed that I built a much more compressed copy of the same game design using code after I tried everything out with D&D.
