2015's Best Gamemaker Games, So Says Gamemaker

Yoyo Games has compiled its favourite Gamemaker games of 2015 into one video, and while it isn’t that long, there’s definitely some quality there. Check it out for some indie goodness.

At first I was all up in arms, because the high quality, locally made Super Mutant Alien Assault wasn’t in the video. Then Alex Walker helpfully pointed out that the game is still in Early Access and hasn’t technically been released yet. So I calmed down. Sometimes games are so polished I forget they’re Early Access games.

It better be in there next time ’round, though — it even fits the music theme!

There’s also the inclusion of Nidhogg, and we’re not complaining, but we’re pretty sure that was released in 2014. Maybe I won’t be too loud about that point. Home team and all that.

As someone who’s been using it for a while, I can recommend Gamemaker as a tool to quickly prototype those game ideas in your head. The language it uses is quite like Javascript, after a few slow nights of getting the hang of things, you’ll be able to see your vision realised. I’m actually surprised the video isn’t longer, as there are a lot of people using it, and a lot of great tutorials on Youtube as well.
