Hello chums, your old friend Lunar here.
I've been kicking around these parts for the better (worse) half of my life, and yet I've never ventured into the land of game development. Why is that? Maybe I've just been intimidated. Either way, I've been very interested in the concept lately. However, I am not sure where to start..
I've downloaded and messed with GameMaker, the drag and drop stuff is simple enough but I know that's not something I'd want to work with if I intend to move onto bigger and better things. I understand I should start with GML, but searching "GML Tutorials" into google brings up a wealth of broken links, outdated information, and general dead-ends. What is the most concise, approachable, up-to-date Tutorial on GML that you all know of?
Along with that, what kind of tips and info can you offer me on the subject? I want to make sure that I learn as much as possible through this.
