I was really worried that loading high resolution pictures into game maker was going to be a problem, but it turns out to be fine. That means all of my art will be easy to load in! HUZZAH! This will also be my first game to default to full screen (and be recommended in full screen) which is cool. This also means I can put off learning java even longer. Which is good and bad.
Also, I hope you've been watching SGDQ 2014, cause it's been great.
