    Also Verdun and Rust are made with Unity, and the price for GameMaker has really gone up recently and it's a lot more expensive for console pro versions.

    Not writing any code, when developing a game is not a good thing.

    So someone like me who doesnt know how to code, but has great artistic skill and story development gameplay ideas. I could use gamemaker and it has the drag and drop thing so i dont have to code? (Obviously it wouldnt be as good as coding yourself) but it would still work?

    Unity 5 removed Boo, so it only has 2 languages

    Hearthstone is on Unity too which I only recently found out.

    I used Game Maker when it first came out. I bought version 1 in the cardboard box it came it was originally released. Things sure have changed since then. I was a teenager back then so it would have been early – mid 90s.


    system.threading and the scalable networking possibilities with unity is probably why it's way better than game maker studio. big learning curve, but a better engine in the long road.

    I'm surprised Ravenfield wasn't on here somewhere in Unity, that's already made it to steam as early access and even in that stage is almost one of the best selling Early Access on steam, ive played it, it's awesome.

    2D for plebs = GameMaker
    2D and 3D for intermediate/average = Unity
    3D for a e s t h e t i c s = Unreal Engine

    Game maker is free even for commercial usage while with unity when you make above a surtain amount of money you need to give the unity makers a part of it too

    Game Maker 7.0 was the best.

    you can make a good ass looking game in gamemaker… It depends on your photoshop skills, or if your a plagiarist, your downloads… Gamemaker is nice for 2D and its full on 2D Not like unity, if you use 3D elements its not really 2D… Also I am a unity user and i love it for 3D games… But never ever would I even fucking consider wasting my time in Unity making a 2D game… Also can unity make shitty 2.5 D games? No it cant! gamemaker better for 2D everytime…

    Game Maker Studio 1 doesn't have a dedicated layering system, but it does have a depth system you can get some of the same effects with by telling it which objects are in front of others.

    If I use the free version of Game Maker Studio 2 can I still make mobile games and export them to the Google Play and/or App Store?!?!

    Well I downloaded and tried GM. It was very confusing and it does not work with sprite sheets. At least I could not figure it out. Does GM have a splicer for the sprite sheets? I have used unity for a month now. The hardest part about it is tile mapping. It has it's own sprite sheet splicer. Just as good as photo shop. So here is my question, do you really have to import each image on the Sprite sheet?

    This video doesn't deserve 300k views. You'll learn more by googling unity vs gamemaker in 3mins compared to watching this 6min video. You didn't even properly compare the features and pros/cons of free version.

    Unity5 free ver can export to all platforms including mobile and there are tons of tutorials and free templates, not to mention websites dedicated to C# and Java programming languages which Unity uses. So in terms of self taught game developers like me, I've made a lot progress and even made a few hundred dollars already just by using the free version of Unity and releasing games on Android App Store.

    Come to think of it, this inspired me to make a better comparison video. If your video reached 300k views without even mentioning what programming languages are being used by the 2 engines then Im sure my more detailed guide will be way more helpful.
