    Financial Stability

    Oh no I wasn't. I was just trying to find other ways of making money while working on an indie game. As much as I hate my job, I know I can't quit, your two stories alone are proof enough on how risky the idea of gambling on game development is. Right now, I'm just trying to find a new job, other ways to earn money, or advice on the whole thing... whichever comes first really. Also, still new to the field, but exactly how would it be your fault for the failure of his game?

    Financial Stability

    I wanna thank everyone who helped me out with my last question, but now I got something possibly bigger than the last one. I just wanna know, how do you guys earn money while making your games to? Do you work a full time job and work on the game at the same time? Cause I gotta say, my full time job is awful, leaving me pretty much drained to the point I really can't do much of anything. So, I've been trying to figure out ways to earn money and work on a game at the same time. Cause I have a school debt to pay off, and now a car payment, so I can't not be working. I can't work at my current job any more for personal reasons. So I'm hoping I can get the help I'm looking for.

    First Game Maker Program?

    @Scouting Ninja, @Rutin, and @kburkhart84 I just wanna thank all three of you for the advice and information you've given me here. I'll be honest, I wasn't expecting to get much of any response. I'm thankful you guys took the time to give me the advice I was seeking.

    First Game Maker Program?

    Oh wow, didn't realize just how much of a limitation you have by just getting the trial version... but, as you said, and from what I've seen, the prices are indeed pretty fair. $40 a year is a great deal, and $100 for a permanent license is just as good. I didn't realize so many great games came from GameMaker! I'm really going to have to give it a try here soon. Huh, never heard of this one. But it doesn't look bad at all. Might have to keep an eye on this one.

    First Game Maker Program?

    Thanks for the advice, I really appreciate it! I actually worked with Unity while in College... honestly wasn't a fan of it. It's a good program, don't get me wrong, but like you said, it was complex. From what I've seen though, GameMaker looks pretty promising. So I can basically get the license to use GameMaker for free, but will need to pay for a license if I want to publish my game on Steam or somewhere, right? Just want to make sure I understand.

    First Game Maker Program?

    To all the game devs out there, what’s a good game design program to start with? Mainly for platformers and/or rpgs. I've heard of quite a few, but I don't know where to start.
