100 Game Maker 8 Games (in 10 min)
A small collection of tutorials for (some of) the various programs suggested for the Design-A-Game project are available on the instructor's Youtube MyChannel, in the INF 1005/6 Playlist. For example:
Following tutorials and playing a number of existing games/levels - both official or player-made - are both really crucial for learning these programs. Playing existing levels will help you to conceptualize what is possible, what the various components/tools can do, and give you ideas of where and how to start. The official/provided tutorials are not always quick or easy, but well worth going through. And please do "cheat" by looking up player walkthroughs, cheats, tips, etc.
