When and how did you discover Game Maker?
I was originailly looking for an RPG maker, i think it was.... 2-3 years ago mabey. I stumbled accross gamemaker completely
by accident, at first i was all like, "sweet!" but then i realized how difficult it was to get into, at the time I had no coding experience
whatsoever, the most i did in creating things on the computer was very basic HTML and text files.
Have you used any other game creation programs?
I used RPGmaker 2000 for awhile, and when i say awhile, i mean 1 month. it limited my creativity too much and i diddnt like the Uber small resolution that it gave.
What games or other projects have you made with (or for) Game Maker?
I made, (in order of appearance):
The Magic Mousetache
All of theese games can be downloaded on my website, I have also been working on tons of other games but i keep on stop production on them because i keep on loosing intrest ><

What advice would you give new Game Maker users or those who would like to improve?
Gamemaker at first is a scary confusing program of death, keep on trying, you'll understand it in a year or so :P
What elements of a game are most important to you and why?
Firstly, Gameplay-- This is what makes a game a game, its what determines if its fun or not. nuff said.
Secondly, Plot-- A game dosent nessicairly need a plot, but if a game auctually has a good plot, it'll leave you awe-struck.
Thirdly, Graphics-- You can't deny it... theres a deep dark side of all of us that lusts for the sacred thing.
Why do you make games? What is your primary inspiration, motivation, or both?
I make games when i have an idea and want to put it out, I like to think about plot moreso than gameplay sometimes, i had to give up one game i was making becuase it had too much plot.
The main points of inspitation for my games has got to be: Megaman, Lord of the rings, and rpg's in general.
Usally ideas for my games pop just out of the blue, but the gameplay i base off diffrent games *cough cough* megaman *cough*
Do you have other artistic pursuits other than game development? If so, what?
Any other comments?
I've tried for months to get certain games finished only to loose intrest!!! curse this 3 month attention span!!! Just because i only have a 3 month attention span dosent nessicairly mean that I
