This workshop is an introduction to the software Gamemaker and is for both primary and secondary teachers. Gamemaker's simple drag and drop interface is suitable down to Year 3, but through its powerful scripting language, it is suitable to Year 12 and beyond. With Gamemaker you can easily create games such as top view, platform games, first person shooters, 3D and networked multiplayer games. It is a fully fledged programming language capable of non game applications such as physics simulations and databases.
