Camp Overview

Gamemaker Studio, developer by YoYo Games, is a coding platform that enables you to create your own games using drag-and-drop visual scripting blocks or using a programming language called GML.
Gamemaker Studio breaks down game design into simple concepts like sprites, rooms, players, and allows you to specify the game logic behind how objects move, how to track and respond to events, and keeping score of points and lives.
You will also be introduced to finite state machines which are an intuitive way to keep track of game progress and define how actions affect the state of the game.
This course will primarily cover the visual programming elements and we will also give a sneak preview into the underlying GML language that can be used to embed more complex logic into your games.
