Episode 1 - Intro to Pixel Game Maker MV

This is a BASIC tutorial series for Pixel Game Maker MV (PGMMV). It's to help bridge the learning curve for those coming from the RPGMaker engines (or any engine), as there are many differences in setting up basic things, like movement or simple actions. This is also a very basic "top down" tutorial for a zeldalike as there really are none available. Pixel Game Maker MV is a fun engine and I hope you give it a shot! This first video shows how to create a project and what resources are available for the community!
