    Game Maker is the equivalent of something like Google Sketchup. It lets you concentrate on creativity, concept, and function, rather than the technical details. Though it's built up enough to let you dig properly into technical aspects. I've seen some crazy shit done with GM.

    Jaibutt and I are workin on a Legend of Zelda-Vindictus crossover. Honestly the Vindictus gameplay is fun but so stagnant, and with so very few interesting enemies. We're gonna rip the control scheme with the exception of LoZ type items, along with Fiona's attack scheme and use more cartoonish graphics and give it, y'know, an actual plot.

    Game Maker wasn't designed with animation in mind (no layers or onion skinning). Flash is still the best for anything more elaborate than a few pixels, I guess.

    Working on a side-scrolling assassin RPG and toying with the idea of leveling down as the game progresses due to injuries and mental stress. Also making a symbolic game about a girl and a hurricane and divorce and such, but the assassin RPG's mechanics are more fun. Dodging stuff versus stealth, throat-slitting, and real-time combat. Tough choice.

    You can create some badass animations using Game Maker. You just have to create a workflow for yourself. It's not all too hard. Kiiryu would show you how it's done if he was still around, lol.

    I'd love to see a way to do it, as I started using Game Maker because it had everything there. Without onion skinning or layers, though, it's just trial-and-error and is the very reason I despise doing pixel art for games.

    EDIT: I might have found a way. I can copy the character from one frame and fill in her silhouette in the next, then treat the silhouette like any other onion skin.
