The Weekly Humble Bundle Is A Dream For Budding Game Developers

Creating a game from scratch is quite the endeavour, so many developers recruit the aid of a pre-made engine and tool set. GameMaker Studio is one such option and if you've been eyeing it off, the latest weekly Humble Bundle not only comes with the Pro version, but a bunch of games with complete source code.

The caveat is you'll need to spend at least $US6 to get GameMaker Studio Pro, with the pay-what-you-want tier offering the following games only:

  • YoYo RPG + Foliage and Items Packs
  • Another Perspective
  • WizardWizard + WizardWizard Source Code and Documentation
  • Spoiler Alert
  • Death Ray Manta

The $US6 level is the next one up and gives you access to these:

  • GameMaker: Studio Pro
  • Stealth Bastard Deluxe
  • Savant — Ascent
  • Another Perspective Source Code
  • Detective Case and Clown Bot in: Murder in The Hotel Lisbon
  • Death Ray Manta (Source)
  • 10 Second Ninja
  • Spoiler Alert (Source)
  • Super Crate Box + Super Crate Box Source Code

Finally, a spend of $US12 will open up this selection:

  • GameMaker Studio Pro: Android Export Module
  • Stealth Bastard Deluxe Source Code
  • Savant — Ascent (Source)
  • Detective Case and Clown Bot in: Murder in The Hotel Lisbon (Source)
  • 10 Second Ninja (Source)
  • Wasteland Kings + Wasteland Kings (Source)

You might not jump into the source code straight away, but it's nice to know you can play these games and be able to immediately take a peek at how a certain mechanic of feature was accomplished.

    Nice indeed. Definitely a nice choice for budding companies or homebrew developers to sink their teeth into. Add some Maya or Photoshop and you're really in business.

      Blender is a fine (and free) 3D suite for these purposes!

    There is also this one from bundlestars:
