Game Maker 8

Shareware
Vista / WinXP
Game Maker is a program for making games. It is created with user friendliness and ease of use in mind, thus makes it possible to create games without having to learn complex programming languages, but still teaching the user basic syntax and principles of object oriented programming. For advanced users there is the built-in scripting language, Game Maker Language (GML).

In addition to 2D, Game Maker also has limited support for 3D graphics and models through Direct3D. It also uses DirectX 8, which opens up possibilities of graphical functionality, such as alpha adjustments and blending settings.

Game Maker comes in Lite and Pro editions. Lite edition is the free one, but has limited functionality and displays a Game Maker logo in the games. The Lite version lacks for example 3D game making, playing music from CD/DVD drives and extended graphic options. Upgrading to Pro edition costs $25 and unlocks the full potential of the software.
