My name is Ryan and I am diving into the world of indie game development.
Some time ago I got a license for Game Maker Studio in a Steam sale. I didn’t really do anything with it since working full time and going to grad school did not give me much free time to go on this little adventure. Now that I am done with school I have decided to give this a go. I still have a full time job, so this is just something that I am doing on the side.
While I do have some coding and scripting experience (mostly scripting), I have never done anything with video game development. I have decided to start with Game Maker Studio 1.4 since I already have a license. After I get a few projects under my belt, I will likely branch out to another game engine, likely Unity.
My plan for this blog/website is to chronicle my journey. I will be posting at least once a week about what I have been learning about game development and progress that I am making on any projects that I am working on.
