I spent a long time with Game Maker and Stencyl was like a beautiful breath of fresh air.

through my friend's referral :d just a month ago and now I am here :)

Years ago, I used game maker fairly extensively (before it was "studio", if I'm not mistaken), and I struggled to eher complete any projects when I used it. Partly because of lack of experience, and partly because it seemed so daunting. About 4 years ago, after learning BASIC and trying realllyyy hard to learn 6502 Assembly, I gave up.  About a year ago, I went back to game maker and saw how much it has changed in the last 10 years, and felt a little discouraged that I had fallen so far out of touch with something I always wanted to pursue but put on the back-burner. I started doing mad google-searches at night to whittle my options down to different development platforms that I felt seems easy enough to start learning how to think like a programmer again, and not just vomit command lines without knowing how to put it all together.

Stencyl became my ever-increasing path of viability after all of my research, and I'm glad I found it. The Internet, probably 30 different websites and forums, is how I found and ultimately decided to use and learn Stencyl as my jumping-off point. Now that I have some experience under my belt with it, though, I don't think it's just a starting point anymore. I see possibilities with this platform for years to come. And I really do feel thankful that the people working on this program decided to do it and keep updating it to make a real option for game development.

Thanks, google! And Stencyl!

I wanted to start making games so I did some research online and found Stencyl after a few days, and after I got it a while later, it has been worth it.

I found you guys when I was searching for 2d unity alternatives on google. Stencyl looks really simple to use and that caught the attention of my eye.

Found this place through Sortingh.at

And I have to say I probably wouldn't have discoved Stencyl without it. It took weeks of failing on other engines and Googling, lucky I didn't give up as this seems to have what I need to get started.

A search engine. I searched something like "top best free game maker", then looked at several lists. Stencyl was in most of them.
Tonight I'll make a game like Skyrim or Call of Duty. It'll be called Delusional.
