GameMaker Studio 2 has a new update released to introduce what will be the latest Beta version of the title editor for Ubuntu Linux (yes, only this distro, as the creators have been quite strict on this, and only offer support for it). A very interesting software and created by the developer YoYo Games.
However, it is very likely that YoYo Games may bring support for more distributions in the future. Be that as it may, for now you can enjoy this new release of GameMaker Studio 2 in Ubuntu, thus achieving a fantastic editor and IDE with SDL2 technology for audio inputs and outputs. Now it will also use FNA3D to process everything, which will allow to make better games for cross-platform.
Hopefully your developers could fix some dependencies current GameMaker Studio 2 libraries to not require certain Ubuntu-specific libraries for exported games. In addition to that, we are also working on polishing some problems and errors that may occur in this Beta version, so that future improved versions arrive.
If you do not know what is GameMaker Studio, it is a platform based on interpreted language and an SDK to develop your own video games. It was initially created by Mark Overmars using Delphi, targeting this software for novice users with little programming knowledge. Therefore, to create video games you will not have to learn Java, C ++, or other similar languages. And if you are a more advanced user, you can use some scripts to create your titles.
GameMaker Studio allows you to create very easy, based on graphic resources, sound, images, etc., which will be assigned to objects on which the video game acts, as well as events to describe what action is executed when a key is pressed, the mouse is moved, etc.
