      Hello,
      Me and a friend have been thinking of making a game, but the thing is that, we only have someone who only knows how to write and very VERY basic coding (Me) and another person who can make the music and know a bit more coding and know how to use Game Maker.
      We are thinking of making a top down Action RPG with some crafting elements, is it possible to make it with our limited abilities? obviously we are open to learn and improve, but, can we start and do something with what we already have?
