      Hi,
      With the recent announcement that the Nintendo Switch will support GameMaker Studio 2 later this year, I am looking for a small team to help create a game.
      There is no game concept or plan at the moment, I am hoping on building this together. I am a University Student building a portfolio, which you can check out here.
      I am looking for the following roles:
      Designer 2D Artist Sound Designer/Composer  
      Just leave a comment or send me a message if you are interested!

      You have 12 hours to search for supplies, transportation or you can continue your journey.
      But as soon as night falls, you must find shelter, turn it into a fortress to stand against the hordes of monsters.
      Equip soldiers, use bonuses and do not forget to follow the energy level of your fighters. 
      In battle be useful to your transport, it would be nice to find a tank.
      Every day the number of monsters to get more, they mutate into stronger and more dangerous forms.

        I have coded small games and put some of the features from them into a platform game. But I know my art is not appealing and I don't want to plan the story and cut scenes out. That is why I am posting on the collaboration forum to see if anyone wants to make a game out of this.
      Only hobbyists apply. Please don't change your mind about it being a hobby. PM me when making your application.
      My platform game includes:
      Camera and Movement
      Moveable camera and not binded to player when pressing middle mouse button.
      Bug free jump.
      Player direction following mouse cursor.
      Environment
      Good collisions.
      Platforms and diagonal slopes.
      Stored Statistics
      Level up with statistics.
      Health bars.
      Save system with continue room.
      Gameplay
      Basic attack.
      Self heal.
      Attack and pull enemies back.
      Attack and throw enemies in the air.
      Essential Rooms
      Zoning to a new room.
      Menu with sounds.
      Game over room.
      Randomized rooms.
      Text Dialogue
      Interacting with NPC displays a message.
      Ending conversation with a key press.
      Text typing itself.
      Fast forwarding text with a key hold.
      P.S. I know everyone suffers from jealousy if someone starts selling the game and forget about the other people that worked on it. That is why we need to make sure that we use Discord. But I do not plan to sell the game.

GameMaker Studio 2 Enters Open Beta on MacOS

Recommended Posts

sProfessional, amateur and student developers focusing on the Mac platform will now have access to the robust features and tool sets YoYo Games, creator of GameMaker Studio 2, put together in this latest iteration on the popular platform.

GameMaker Studio 2 on Mac OS is completely on par with its Windows and console siblings, keeping intact the vast upgrades and overhauls made in still-new engine released earlier this year. YoYo Games has developed a product for all levels of expertise as seen with the trademarked Drag and Drop system (DnD™), which translates desired actions into actual, functioning code designed for beginners. Professional developers retain the same powerful programming language and comprehensive set of tools for advance exporting and rapid deployment across all leading platforms including mobile, console and desktop.

“Mac owners love video games just as much as PC or console owners,” said James Cox, General Manager of YoYo Games. “Bringing GameMaker Studio 2 to Mac will help us reach as many budding or expert developers as possible. With GMS2 we are eliminating the OS roadblock many developers find themselves behind when they want to focus on the Mac platform.”

With GameMaker Studio 2 more widely available to Mac developers, students and educational institutions can broaden their usage of the engine and begin, or continue, their journey into gamecreation. Anyone using the engine will also benefit from many improvements including:

  • Workflow enhancements: a new innovative workflow and seamless path from DnD™ to actual code with multiple workspaces, user definable resource views, real-time updates from one editor to another, and cross platform source level debugging;
  • Level editing features: new layer-based level editing gives developers the ability to create more complex visuals with backgrounds, tiles, instances, assets and paths. New features also include level inheritance to create multiple levels at once, and an advanced tiling system that automatically selects the right tile for the job;
  • Cross-platform development: available for Windows (Vista and above) and soon for Mac OS X for target development across multiple platforms including Windows Desktop, Mac OS X, Ubuntu, iOS, Android (including Android TV, Amazon Fire and Fire TV), Microsoft UWP, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One;
  • Native extensions: Game Maker Language (GML) supports all native targets to simplify the cross-platform development.
