KIDS WELCOME …. GAMEBUILDING FOR WINDOWS 8 AND WINDOWS PHONE USING GAMEMAKER

 

GameMaker is a power visual environment for building games that can run easily on a variety of platforms, such as Windows 8, Windows Phone, and even Android and iOS.  During this session we’ll explore the basics of the GameMaker User Interface, build several sample games, and talk about publishing your game to the Windows Stores.   We’ll also explore the available tutorials and templates that you can use to jumpstart your app-building with GameMaker.
