This part is your way,if you want to start from the scratch or buy some demo engine from marketplace then learn step by step.
3.Organize your game art,objects,group in game maker
This is something that all dev need to know,do not use something like me at start of game,ok i know every object,but look how my game look in game maker
This is something that i do mistake and fail at start i dont use group for each objects in game,now i have everything mixed,and trust me with 100 objects in game you need to list for some object to find it.
4.Make demo before realise a full game
Ok this is what we all need to know,as you make small game,make demo game with 2 or 5 level just to see how people react to your game.This free demo must be free,do not put anykind of ads or anything that will avoid people to buy a game.
5.Make reward system for user
If i play game,what i need some reward,as you develop a small game,you can always find the way to make people more attract to your game.Lets say find a bug in game and reward will be your name in credits of game or small place that will be added your name in game.So people will play a game,have a fun and if they find some bug in your game,they will report and get rewarded by place a name in game as rewards
