Getting started with GameMaker Language
GameMaker Language (or GML) is GameMakers unique own programming language and is very similar to other languages like for example Java. So if you have some experience in other languages it won’t be that hard to get started. If you have no programming experience, getting started with GML might seem a little tricky at first. But after going through some of the basics you are also good to go! The best way to learn is in my opinion to just start building. And a word of advice: start small and try not to make the biggest en best game ever. If you make a lot of different small games or prototypes you will learn a lot of different aspects of GML, which will make it easier to make that bigger game in the end.
Unfortunately like a lot websites, this one also lacks updates :'( If you wanna know what up? Just head over to Twitter! Click here dude!
