Subject description: Game Engine Review
Reply with quote

I've modded many C&C games over the years and in the past few months have been developing Indie Games using game development software called Game Maker Studio. I've learned the custom language it uses called GML and have developed 2 platformer style Indie game engines from scratch in the past 5 months. I started with zero knowledge of programming and had only slight previous experience with my mod for Tiberium Sun.

I know a lot of you have a great RTS game in mind and have been trying to use the non open source C&C game engines to develop it, but there is only one place those mods can go, on the shelf. Game Maker Studio is very user friendly and might be what your looking for. It is also free to use for windows games but can also be upgraded to export games to MAC, IOS, PS, XBOX, etc. It supports RTS style games and even isometric view!

The reason I'm posting this is a see a lot of drive and talent from modder's and those skills should be put to better use than a large scale total conversion of a game engine that's already property of another. Go and make a new RTS title of your own and even if it's simple I guarentee you will gain a fan base. Thats what I'm doing and hopefully you will consider it.

sometimes it's easier to coast off of another game's sails than to jump into an ocean of other indie games all alone.
It all depends on what you want to get out of it, and who you're doing it for

Sorry to dig this one but I just found this topic and opportunity to promote my game using this topic. :p

Those game look really great I really want to learn more about it if you have any project website to visit.

http://www.moddb.com/games/metaloidorigin

https://www.facebook.com/retrorevogame



Me [Artist] and my friend [Programmer] create side scrolling platformer game call "Metaloid:Origin" using Game Maker Studio focus for IOS/Android but still can be play better on PC, Unlike most action game on mobile we really try to make it as "Real game" which lack of microtransaction thingy.

We was plan to release Alpha Demo on next month I hope if anyone interesting to help me test it and give me idea how to make the game better. Smile

and truly I really want to see more GMS user show their project here.

Gorgeous. Don't think I'd mind testing it. Is it multiplayer?

I've been messing around with game maker for, well since an old version before it became studio, but never came up with anything interesting honestly. Recently been working on a Hotline Miami meets Resident Evil thing...

Looks like a AAA game to me, if AAA game companies still do pixel art that is. I like it.

Thank you for your interest.

only problem I have for now is I don't know did the game offer some "fun" to player or not I decide to allow player test it at early of development maybe we can improve some feature or level design make it feel "right" for them since the game have only 2 person working on it we can't know by our self if the game good for player or not but for us it's away great.

can't deny the game still have some feature design to make money but mostly just some sort of cheat to help noob or lazy player finish the game easier than normal.

and sadly we don't have MP for our game even we want to include it so bad but we lack of ability to do so for now.

we still consider about game price for windows version but I didn't expect price to reach 10$ anyway. Laughing

I meant the engine.

But the game looks nice too, too bad I don't have a smart phone...

if you mean price of GMS it's about 100$ with our mobile export module but for steam version some time it price drop below 75% on sale often and truly can you try the free version on
which enough to learn something and create small game.

You can also make 3D game with GMS but it harder and not good as what you can do with unity. It's more design for 2d.

if you want to make anything 3D I suggest Unity but if you want to make your idea become real fast but not 3D GMS is a good choice.

Mighty No.9 base on Unreal Engine though.

f it had any part of game as 3D I count the game as 3D you know? :p

yeah you can make game like Doom1-2 in GMS but It just harder and might not offer advance graphic function if you need one.
