Being fortunate to be a kid growing up in 1980’s, I was lucky enough to follow the development of home game console market.
I was always more interested in how the games were designed and made, rather than actually playing them. I still remember Christmas (1982, I think) when I received a Spectrum 48K computer. This device changed my life – a home computer you could play AND make games on.
Mid 1984 I had made my first game, a very basic racing game. It was nothing special, by this piqued my interest. Some 30 years later I still enjoy programming and making games.
Thanks to GameMaker Studio 2, it’s language and interface, making games for computers and consoles has never been easier.
With 2019 fast approaching, I decided to do, what I hope, is the best project yet – cover the process of making a game for the Nintendo Switch.


Unlike previous book projects of mine, that focused solely on the programming process, this book will cover the whole process, and include contents such as:
  • Initial Planning & Preparation
  • Game Design Considerations
  • Developing For Specific Consoles
  • Financing
  • Outsourcing For Graphics & Audio
  • Setting Up Developer Accounts
  • Beta Testing & Debugging
  • Publishing
  • Game Promotion
I'm looking to get as many people involved as possible.If you join up, you will get the following:
  • Access To A Special Page, Regularly Updated With Current Project Progress
  • Chance To Vote On Witch Game / Game Genre To Make
  • Opportunity To Make Suggestions As The Game Progresses
  • Regular Downloads, So You Can Check Progress
  • Your Name In The Book As A Supporter
  • Copy Of eBook & Resources
  • Key To Get A Nintendo Switch Copy Of The Finished Game
