Game maker hobbyist since 2000-2003.
I made my first game around 8-10 years old, using this Game Maker 1.4 I found from old demo disc.
I used the Game Maker 1.4 for few months and began to get into the world of game making.
After using the 1.4 for a while I googled for this Game Maker, and found out about the 5.3 version which I bought and used for many years to make 2D games.
Around 1 year ago I was intrested to go for 3D game making and I searched for good game making software as I found C++ too hard at the time.
I tried FPS Creator, but I wanted to do more things myself, so I visited TGC and I found this DarkBASIC program and started off with it making 3D games.
I'm also playing a lot of games, mostly action games and occasionally driving simulators.
I play them for fun and spare time, but I'm also fascinated by the mechanics of the commercial games and try to figure out how each feature is coded.
I still currently use DarkBASIC for game making.
At the moment I have only one completed project and I'm going to upload it to AppUp.
I propably have 20-30 unfinished projects, 3 of them major.
