Hello TIGForum people.
It's been a while since I spoke up around here. Last time it was mostly regarding a Game Maker game for my wife as an anniversary gift
. It was my first game and the support I received here was fantastic! Recently, I've been bitten by the game making bug again. This time I'd like to try making an isometric game similar to Altered Space on GB or Solstice on the NES. I've been hunting around for tutorials on how to get a project like this going in Game Maker, but I haven't had any luck. Things seem quite advanced for my current skill level. So I've decided to come back here and ask for help on basic things like moving a character around on an iso grid and such.
The ironic thing is about this is I currently work in the games industry. I'm a 2D artist and animator, so doing the art isn't an issue, but I really struggle with the programming side of things, but I really do want to learn. Any help at all would be most welcome.
