Yesterday I grew my NES collection by almost 20 games. I found a great local retro games collector/dealer on Craigslist.
NES and SNES are my favorite consoles. This weekend I’m going to play each of these games with my wife and a few friends. I should find lots of inspiration for next week’s posts buried in these cartridges!
The purpose of this blog will be to show people how to make retro style games with GameMaker Studio. GMS is expensive, I try to keep costs down by mostly using free or very cheap software.
I picked GMS over cheaper alternatives, like Construct 2, because GMS is easier to use and more powerful. Plus it exports to more platforms than most other engines. All code/art I create will be FOSS, under the loosest, most permissive license I can find. GMS project files will be available for download for each week’s project.
I plan to release a post on this blog, daily, starting 8/3/2015.
