I was gonna download it, but since that seems to be the case, I think I will wait until viruses are gone

Ok guys the viruses are leaving right now, so you can probably download and run the .exe in 10 minutes!

It says a "preview" isn't available because it's an .exe so you know... I downloaded it without any problems. :P

 

Also here's a virus scan for them scared people.

I've not had the chance to play the game yet but will when I get a chance and give you feedback.

Where are you attending this course and is this a first year assignment, have you picked a title yet or are you still exploring your skill set?

GameMaker is a fun engine to work with, if you dig deep into it you can churn out some really awesome stuff.

@Frag

I'm attending this course at King's Lynn in England and yeah it's one of the many assignments I have to do for this year... My course isn't just about creating games it's also about the games industry in general so that after completing this course you have a wider range of opportunities. At the moment I'm thinking about coding/modelling/mapping but honestly I will decide between all of them after I explore all the subjects within this course so that I know what I'm best at doing. My favourite thing to do is just to play around in Hammer when I have free time so more than likely I'll be mapping.

I'll explore Game Maker a lot more as it's a good way to show of your skills if you're ever looking for a job in the games industry, it looks good on your CV and shows that you can code, draw sprites and many other things that you need to do when creating a game in that program.

 

@Proxgamers

xD, well thanks for the feedback, this was intended to be a rage-quit type game but due to time constraints I haven't had the amount of time needed to polish the game up and actually make a better game.

 

I will be creating more games in Game Maker when I have free time because I really enjoyed making this one. Obviously this game isn't the best because of the deadline for the assignment but now that I have a better understanding of this program I will be able to produce better games. :D

@Proxgamers

Thanks again for the great feedback. Will do! :D

 

I've made minor changes to the game and the actual .exe file itself now.

So now instead of having to install the game, you can just run the .exe. Earlier when I was compiling the game I didn't realise I can change the output in the drop down menu so sorry to the people who had to install it.

Changes:

I added a HUD for the timer and I also made it so that it's in the middle or at least closer then from what it was before...

Also whenever you step onto the locked door instead of a message showing up there is a icon that pops up in a speech bubble with a key icon inside of it, should be self explanatory of what it means. :P

But yeah other than that I think this game is complete. It was a cool project to work on and as it was my first I will be doing more since I enjoyed doing this so much. :D

 

Here's a link to the updated version:

If you need any advice I'm happy to offer it, I've been in the industry for about 5 years now, one piece of wisdom I will leave you with is this.

Pick a practice, don't specialise in everything, studios are not looking for a jack of all trades, its good to know other practice's so you can better communicate on ideas and issues, but when you have your practice, stick with it :)

P.S I'm a level designer, so if your interested in heading down that route, I'll happily chuck wisdom :)

Thanks for the offer Frag. :D

I am going to have my practice but just like you said, I want to be able to understand their practices too in order to communicate better.

Also I know you're a level designer from all the knowledge you shared on this forum I kinda figured that out already. :P

I'd love to work with you one day on a level/map if you don't mind obviously because I've got many idea's for maps but sometimes I just cannot create them as I may not have the knowledge or I just don't have time to do it. If I could I would spend around 6 hours each day on Hammer/UDK (Still need to learn how to use UDK) just coming up with levels.
