  1. To create a new project simply click the button labelled New to take you to the following screen:

GameMaker permits you to specify what type of project it is that you wish to create.

2. The option we are interested in is GameMaker Language: This will create a project where the default programming is done using the GameMaker Language (GML).

The other option is Drag and Drop Project: This will create a new project in which the Object Editor (and any other editors that permit code) will be set up to use the GameMaker Studio 2 Drag and Drop interface.

3. You will then be prompted to choose a save location for the project and then it will be opened in GameMaker Studio 2.

4. Choose to save the project in a location on your computer that you will remember in the future. Give the game a name, such as SpaceNuts.
