This website is about Game Maker from professor Mark Overmars (www.gamemaker.nl). Game Maker is a 4th generation rapid game development environment with an easy to use interface making it accasable to non programmers. This combined with a powerful functional 3th generation programming interface allows you to make high quality games in a short period of time. Due to it's ease of use Game Maker is often used as a teaching tool for students to introduce them to programming and also gained Game Maker much popularity under children. However Game Maker is not a clildren tool and it's fully capable of creating very powerful commercial quality games.
I've build this website about 10 years ago for the Game Maker version at that time. Please note that some of the examples and scripts will no longer work in later versions of Game Maker. This website is no longer being maintaned.
