I wrote some thoughts about Sparlatacus and his games in April 2017, which you can find here
When and how did you discover Game Maker?
I can't remember. I think I searched on Google or something.
Have you used any other game creation programs?
I have used Klik & Play, Games Factory, Game Maker, Python, DarkBasic, Blitz Basic, Visual Basic, QBASIC, Liberty Basic, C++, and many others.
What games or other projects have you made with (or for) Game Maker?
I have made nearly 30 apps and games (mostly games) with various applications, most of them with Game Maker. I'm getting a domain for them and hosting it on my own server since all the stuff is over 90 megs. I plan to get it up on x-mas eve or before. You can check www.kubusmannen.com
, I will put the link up there when the site is finished.
