GameMaker Studio 2

GameMaker Studio 2, in my opinion, is amazing. The new drag and drop user interface, the stylish yet simple UI and the dedication to the 2D genre make GameMaker the best at what it is trying to do.

Make no mistake, though, if you want the best performance on desktop option, a 3D option (or even 2.5D), or the best specifically mobile option double check the where do I start tutorial first.
