    This is the game engine I recommend to anyone who is interested in learning about making games. If it's 2D, you can make it in GM. This does require programming skills, but it uses its own language, GML, which isn't too bad to pickup. There's a ton of tutorials out there as well so you'll probably be able to find help with whatever you're interested in making. It's also an engine that can easily grow with you as your skill increases. Beginners can get going quickly, but there have also been a ton of big indie games that have been built in GM. If you've got an idea for a game, chances are you can make it in GM.
