Game Maker Notes


  1. Jacob Habgood and Mark Overmars, The Game Maker's Apprentice, Apress, 2006.

    This is a really good reference book. It sells for $26 through Amazon. Click here to get to it.

  2. Jerry Lee Ford, Getting Started with Game Maker, 2009.

    This book is good. I don't like it as much as The Game Maker's Apprentice. But, it is aimed at a lower level, and thus might be better for beginners.
