Hi! A game company in my country is hiring communication graduates(which I am) for a games designer position. The thing is, I need a few games under my belt to at least show some skills or knowledge in game design(designing levels,game mechanics etc.) and I'm thinking of using game maker to make a few games. I'm learning c++ right now and I've heard in some places that using game making tools will make you develop bad programming habits and will slow down my progress. Is this true? Is learning game maker while I'm learning c++ a bad move? Thanks a lot in advance!:)
