As long-time Game Maker users, we love all the features the software has to offer us as developers. But there's one area where Game Maker falls WOEFULLY SHORT of adequate, and that is stylized text. The only options you have in GM are to color the text, scale it, and rotate it. Well, what if I want a black outline? How about a drop shadow? How about something even more zany than that? What if I want my text to look like it's covered in boils and squirting ooze? Yeah, that's right. I said it.
If you rely on Game Maker's basic text functions, your text-heavy portions of your game end up looking terrible, kinda like our original mockup of the Masteries page for Quadropus Rampage.
