Is Game Maker Studio a “Game Changer”?

My oldest son and step daughter are taking a game programming course at a local college. We figured it would keep them busy for five half days this summer and who knows they might even learn something and enjoy it. My son has really taken to it so far.

They are using Game Maker by Yo Yo games – who has an impressive list of executives. I checked out the software and its pretty impressive, the video tells a great story – check it out below. The new version will allow compilation to multiple platforms – iPhone, Windows, Mac, iPad, HTML5 and Android – way cool! The development tool supports all kinds of scripting, drag and drop, custom DLL’s and a whole lot more. The platform looks good enough to create some high quality games and can definitely be used by hobbyist.

With export to HTML5, look out Zynga!
