Is there any reason Pixel Game Maker is not talked about here?

author=Darken
What are you even talking about? Pixel Maker MV can't even export to any of the platforms GMS has addons for.

YET
Does not mean it won't.
As Kory stated, it's still early access.
And tight now it does not need the ability to export to ANY platform until bugs are worked out, and the software is more complete.

I think once folks see what I'm making, they'll feel differently about the software.
Even I had a lot of hatred for it till I used it.
It went on sell for 63$ so I bought it.. to me personally that's a better deal than GMS, cause if you wanna release something commercial, you gotta pay them several hundred dollars to get a specific add on that allows for exporting the game to what ever platform you want to release your game on.

Pixel Game Maker MV

Ignore the negativity any of you out there might hear.
It's NOT that bad.
I've actually been getting a lot of progress with it on a project.

I'm shocked at all the negativity about the software.
I've been using it, it's not that bad.. and I love the user interface quite a bit.
It's been way easier for me than Game Maker Studio.. in fact I found the UI in GMS to be horrible and confusing.
This is the first software i've used to try and make my own platformer that i've actually been able to get anything done with!
Like, my player moves just like I want him to, jumps like i want him to, animates how i want him to.
So far it's been a piece of cake.
All the hate is leaving me scratching my head, and yes they're still working on it despite the comments about them not working on it.
My only negative comment about it is the fact that for objects (events basically) it uses a flow chart style.. which.. ugh.. i despise flowcharts..
But i used it enough to the point that i love it, and i can see myself ACTUALLY finishing a project.
It even comes with a tutorial you can turn on that literally walks you through the process of making something, giving you a damn good idea of what things do what and how they do such things.
I never would have bought the software, but a couple weeks ago, they had a free week of use, and i gave it a shot.. i complained a little.. but i freaking love it.
hell, i like it more than RPG Maker, and that should tell you something.

By the way, once I have some combat done, and more of the gameplay done, i'll post a project page.

Okay.. so.. only reason i asked was cause i was going to post information about the project i'm working on with it.. for now just screenies..
I was not sure if there was a rule against it or anything..

I'm not offended. It's fine.
I mean, yeah they are kinda funny looking.. but i'm not exactly shooting for realism.
Also, it seems you replied to a comment I can't see.. sorry for the mix up..

I chock that up to stylizing.. it's a whimsical game.. i'm not trying to get it to look like real life lol
But i do appreciate the feedback on the trees.. it's something I noticed, but I kept thinking the perspective would be okay.

I think this works.

I sat here adjusting it.

Working on a platformer in Pixel Game Maker.

I'm calling this game Awesome Andy.
So far it's coming out pretty good.
I'm not sure about the hills though, should I reshape them in the background?

I've been using it, it's not that bad.. but there's like.. no forums anywhere talking about it... supporting it.
Yes, it's still in early development and an early access, but i've found no forums that wanna talk about it.
