      Hello everybody, i'm working on a RPG game in GameMaker Studio, and as a beginner yea still gotta learn a lot. Created the sprites(for the player and its animations), Background for a room(some basic grass), and the objects for some basic walls and the player(included collisions, move, animate, speed etc). But what I'm hoping for is a turn-based fight systems. So when I collide with an object, it will enter the turn-based fight system. How do I do that? Seems kinda hard, and there are unclear tutorials on how to do it. So may someone explain be how to do it? Step by step, or if not, just some links where to learn some stuff so maybe I'll do it by myself. THANKS

      Hi guys, I'm actually creating an RPG game by myself, a complete n00b, but the game is actually not that bad. I made sprites and animations, Backgrounds, a testing room and some code. And was just thinking 'bout getting more into game development so I may increase my game development skills. The game is actually based on Adventure Time, I named it "Adventure Time: Dimensional War". Still gotta create it's story, add dialogue boxes, hitboxes, enemies, turn-based fight systems etc. So I thought that maybe this joining this kind of forums will help. 
      Right now I just need to learn how to make some enemies objects to follow me, attack me, and animate. I want to animate them just the way the player gets animated (up, down, right, left) So may someone tell me how to do it?

      Hey guys, It Anthony from Atwo Studios bring you another game update for our game ROY. This past week we worked on fixing scaling issues for our game and in the video below i will be talking about the tutorial for our game, which we will be working on this week. 
      In-case you haven't watched the previous video where i explain the overall game, our game ROY is a color combination game targeted for android which uses your basic color combinations to traverse through our different levels and beat the different goals of that level. That video can be found on our website @ atwostudios.com or on our youtube @ Atwo Studios.
      Feel free to leave any comments or suggestions on our game, and Thank you for taking the time to read the blurb about the game and watch the video!
      If you don't want to check the video out, you don't have to but its very much appreciated!

      Hello, I'm an aspiring game designer and doing a research paper on being a game designer for high school. Part of doing this project is getting an interview from an active game designer. I was hoping someone could help me with this, If you're interested in helping me that would be great! I just need you to answer these 5 questions.
      What experience might you need for this job?    What experience might you get from this job?      What are the Hours like for this Career?   Is there anything extra that you would recommend to learn in order to get better at this job or something to learn before going to college?    Is there anything you know now that you wish you knew when starting out?   If anyone could help that would be fantastic
