When and how did you discover Game Maker?
July 2001, on google
Have you used any other game creation programs?
a few rpg makers, I deleted them quickly as they were difficult to use
What games or other projects have you made with (or for) Game Maker?
Death dungeon, death dungeon 2, gloom and unicurse are on my site (www.titaniumfish.co.uk)
What are your favorite Game Maker games?
Mnomen 4 by Mnomen, Infiltrator deathmatch by GZsoft, Seiklus ;)
What are your favorite games NOT made with Game Maker?
soldat, the metal gear series, the monkey island series and vice city - to name a few
What advice would you give new Game Maker users or those who would like to improve?
compare your game with other, similar, more successful games and see what makes it good.
What elements of a game are most important to you and why?
needs to be fun to play and not just mindless busywork, graphics are better recognizable and a storyline is a plus.
Why do you make games? What is your primary inspiration, motivation, or both?
for fun really, to know I can make games - a thing that i really wanted to do before I discovered GM. Most of my motivation comes from the replies to the games I post in the forum.
Do you have other artistic pursuits other than game development? If so, what?
I enjoy drawing, some of my pictures are on my site. i will try and get more on once I can scan some images in somewhere.
Any other comments?
