STARTER KITS

The best starter kits for GameMaker are the completed tutorials and demos. When GameMaker opens for the first time, you'll find them in the middle tabs. Also note there are PDF (slightly dated) tutorials at http://sandbox.yoyogames.com/make/tutorials which will give you a great jumpstart as well.
