I've been using game maker for a while now, once I saw it on steam I was totally hooked !
Pros: User friendly, great community, steamworkshop, crossplatform exports(some versions of GM vary)
Cons: There are some bugs in game maker, but it's not many.
For those of you that are new to programming this is for you.
- Drag and drop was made for people who have little to no experience in programming. This was away for people to learn programming while using D&D at the same time. You can easily transfer D&D to code. https://www.packtpub.com/sites/default/files/downloads/4100OT_Appendix_Drag_and_drop_Icons_to_GameMaker_Language_Reference.pdf
Here is a useful link if you want to learn D&D to code
For those of you that are beginners to programming this is for you
- If you already know programming this is also greaat for you. Having the knowledge to program is very powerful in gamemaker. First of all you can do a lot more stuff, it's nicer and have a lot more flexibility.
Why choose game maker?
- Game maker is great for beginners and those who want to learn how game development works. The free version itself works just as well as the professional edition. There are minor things that you can or cannot do, but all resources are available in both versions. I personally got the professional version because I saw it on sale :D The community is absolutely amazing. If you want help you got it. Just go to the game maker forums programming Q &A, but be before you make a post, I recommend telling them what you have tried first, so they can help you solve your problems.
All in all its a great tool for beginners.
To top things off, I am going to give some useful youtubers and programs that you may be able to use.https://www.youtube.com/user/uheartbeast

Inkscape is a wonderful tool that can be used in gamemaker, it's a vector art tool. ou basically use shapes : cirlces, squares, triangles and mold them into whatever you want ! Check out microsoft virtual academy for that one !
