Title: The Game Maker’s Apprentice: Game Development for Beginners
Authors: Jacob Habgood and Mark Overmars
Publisher: Apress
ISBN: 1-59059-615-3

The book starts without assuming any knowledge about Game Maker and treats all basic aspects in detail. In later chapters though more advanced concepts like views, time lines, GML programming, and artificial intelligence are treated. The book contains nine game project and includes all professional quality resources required to create these. Also a three chapters discuss game design concepts.

For more information about the book, and to download a sample chapter, visit the book webpage.

The book can be ordered from for US $25.19. (Don’t be distracted by the indicated 4-7 weeks delivery time. This is not correct. They will have to book in stock by the end of the coming week.) But it will also be available through any other (online or normal) bookstore.

I hope many of you will enjoy the book.

Now you know if you want to meet GM users in real life, just go to your local book store and hang out there for a few min until some guy (or gal) confidently walks in and grabs “the book” hehe.

  3. Yeah saw at the Announcements in GMC. Sounds very nice, I don’t think I have much use of it though since I learnt Game Maker. But I hope it is something to help the new users.
