Learn to go beyond the average GameMaker Studio 2 developer, learn to make 3D games!

3D is one of the most difficult and daunting topics in GameMaker Studio 2. The game engine is not designed specifically for 3D games, so many of things must be done in scratch. We will be covering the basics of 3D, so you can truly understand so you can go onto more complicated projects.

In this course, you will learn:

  • How to use vertex buffers

  • How to activate 3D mode

  • How to create a first person camera, where you can look around

  • How 3D models work in GameMaker Studio 2

  • How to load OBJ models from scratch; Build an .obj loader in GameMaker Studio 2

  • How to put 2D sprites on a 3D perspective

  • 2D Perlin Noise

We will not be covering how to build a 3D collision engine or how to implement skeletal animations.

The knowledge in this course was built off of trial and error of using the GameMaker Studio 2 engine, many mistakes were made, and some things taught took months of work. Many people who take this course may decide to either stay for the challenge of making a game in this engine or to even switch to another game engine. The intent of this course is to help you not go through the months of mistakes made and instead get you past the beginner stage so you can progress on building your game.

Don't let this discourage you! Many people starting out using this engine dream of building a 3D game! By knowing how to work with 3D, you will be ahead of many other GameMaker Studio 2 developers!

What You'll Learn:

We've broken down this course into easy-to-understand modules and lessons that you can revisit as many times as you'd like.

  • Learn the ins and outs of what goes into making a character. The character is the most important part of a video game, so we'll want to spend plenty of time learning how to create great characters. Explore all the options GameMaker Studio 2 has to offer to get our character moving around. By the end of this module, we'll have a character running and jumping around.

  • We'll also spend some time learning how to create animations (like fireballs) for our character.

  • Now that we have a character moving around the screen, let's build some spaces for them to move around in!

  • We'll go over how to create level layouts and add some fun mechanics to our environment.

  • Every game needs a title screen, and we can create ours using GameMaker Studio 2!

  • We'll also use GameMaker to save and load game data.

  • Giving the player goals is a crucial part of any game, so let's explore a few ways to do that in our games!

  • You'll learn all about collectibles, enemies, and creating big boss battles.

  • The difference between a good game and a great game is its audio. You'll learn how to implement great sound, and we'll go over the best ways to add sound effects and music to add life to your game.

  • Much like sound effects, adding visual effects to our game makes the overall experience much better. Even tiny visual effects can make a feature of the game come to life!

  • By the end of this course, you'll learn to add effects and animations your players will love.
