(I'm new here so correct me if this is in the wrong forum.)


I was thinking of making a game, but I wasn't sure which game making program to use.

Multimedia Fusion, Stencyl, or Mark Overmar's Game Maker.

Hi Javet, Welcome!

Hmm not sure if we have a indie dev forum here so it's cool.

Well since Stencyl is still in "private developement", your real options in your poll are MMF and GM.

Personally I've only used MMF and GM briefly so I wouldn't know which is "better". GM is considerably cheaper though and if you're starting out, it's probably the better choice.

I have already bought MMF. I've had it. But I have trouble with it.

Well, more not knowing how to use it. I've had it for two years, taken two two week camps on how to use it, and still I don't know how to do a lot of stuff. But I'm smarter now than I was 2 years ago, so I think the odds are a little better.

I don't know how to give sprites animation (the ones you draw yourself.)
I don't know how to do a weapon configuring system.
I don't know how to a lot more stuff. But I'll try to figure it out.
