    If your looking for motivation, take a break. A couple weeks or months should do. If your for serious quiting, then I'm really sorry. Good luck.

    Your first forum post is for resignation? for me that means you do not even have tried. I recommend you watch tutorials ( there are lots ) and make simple games first. Good luck.

    Hi @yoshi989388 As has been said, check out the manual and Cookbook tutorials as your first stop.

    Making games takes time, patience, skills and experience learnt, etc, etc. They don't just happen. GameSalad is an excellent program to make some amazing games that others have made - and some of those started with no experience at all.

    It's like you've picked up a guitar and wailed: "I can't even play a simple song like... name that song "

    Btw, to make a Mario or Donkey Kong game isn't particularly simple....

    So no point throwing the towel in right at the beginning because you can't press a magic button to make it all happen at once....

    It'll take you weeks/months to get up to speed with even the simplest of full game, years for more complex ones. Best of luck if you persevere.

    P.S If you start any more threads in the future, please make your thread title as descriptive as possible so people know what your question is, thanks.

    Game making isn't for everyone. It requires lots of work and isn't easy. Just because one likes playing games doesn't mean you'll enjoy or be good at making them.

    There are way to many platformer style templates available to be thinking its time to give up. I would suggest searching google for a "platformer_kit gamesalad"
