How To Make Saving and Loading for a Platformer

Today’s Game maker Studio 2 project shows a way of handling the feature of saving and loading a game. It focuses on retaining what level the player was in, the abilities they have obtained in their adventure and allow new modes to unlock depending on how much the player has progressed. This system was made for 2D platformers and is designed to handle level progress and setting the values of important variables to true or false. It is not suitable for RPG’s or Zelda style games. It specifically cannot handle the position of puzzle objects, inventory, treasure chests, special events and growing crops.
