Welcome to tinkernut.com’s videocast. In this video, I will show you how you can make your very own customized arcade game.
Now this project is free to do, but it does require program to download called Game Maker 7.0.
The first thing you’ll need to do is to create a bunch of sprites for your game using an image editor like gimp or something. You want to create all the sprites that you see here.
Then create a new game and then right click on the sprite and select “create sprite” to create all the sprites. Then type in a name, click “load image”, and then select the image that you created and then be sure to check smooth edges, then click okay. Repeat this process for all the sprites that you need.
Okay, the next thing you’ll need to do is to create D6 sounds for your game. You can get these sounds from anywhere. A lot come with the game itself, and then just right click under sound select to create sounds. Type in the name of the sound, click “load sound” and select the sound that you created for.
Now make sure that for the background sound that you select that you check background music, and then just click ok.
Alright, next we’re going to create a background image, and it’s pretty straightforward. You can use any image, just click load background and we’ll move on.
The next part for scripting, you can find a copy of the script at the link there, and then just create a script for random movement for the villain. And you can just follow along here or just copy and paste the script from the download link that are provided for you.
This next part I’m going to go through is really fast, so feel free to pause the video anytime you want a better explanation, or even just play it in slow motion.
