I went through the tutorial for this awesome Steam software title called "GameMaker: Studio". It's free, if you didn't see it yet. Well, the basic version is free.
Anywho, I created my first game based on the classic "spank the monkey, win a prize" gameplay we loved so much in ads. Actually, it was a tutorial in the program. So I spent a few minutes, went through all the tutorial pages, up to page 10 where you can test your game and actually play it. Boy, was I ever excited! I decided to do what most publishers do, release it now, patch it later (yes, you can patch your indie games right through Steam).
So, here's my first game titled, "Piece of Crap Clown Game". Folks, I must warn you, the hype train for this is still boarding and it's going to be a blast. Rolling Stone gives my game a "10/10! Would try to load again!".
Has anyone else made an incredible game they'd like to share?
