Mark Releases Book Site

If you don’t know already, Prof. Mark Overmars (Creator of Game Maker) is planning on releasing a book called The Game Maker’s Apprentice. Which is intended to teach a novice user Game Design from the beginning including the programming aspect of it. The book does use Game Maker 6.x (comes on CD) to teach the reader how to program the game being designed with the book. The website also includes some executables of the games you’ll be making if you plan on buying a book. They are of pretty high quality for something a beginner will manage to accomplish, and that’s another incentive to buy the book.. A total of nine complete games are produced during the course of the book, three of which are down loadable before you buy.
