Unless Windows(R) means something more than just "make a game for Windows users", you can use programming languages such as C++ or Java or a wide variety of others to do what you want.

Instead of trying to make a whole new game (which will require you to learn a programming language), why don't you use the DROD or DROD:RPG level editor to make some DROD levels.

I mean, what is it you want to put in a new DROD game that you don't already have in the DROD editor?

Perhaps some sort of directed-energy long range personal weapon?

I have not used Game Maker as of yet, but I'm guessing that if you want to make a game as complex as DROD, it will take more than a couple of afternoons. You may also not be able to make such a game on Game Maker.

Echoing what has been said above, if you *would* like to make a DROD-like game however, you would be a lot better programming in a language such as C.
You can download C++, C#, F# etc. programs from the Microsoft website for free, just Google visual studio 2012. These are easy to use for beginners, but this definately does not mean you could make a DROD-like game without knowing anything about the language. If you still would, however, like to program this from scratch, it will take a good few years (as in well over 4 or 5 years) to do so - I would set myself a goal a bit nearer to the present.

If you just want to create a hold, which I think is what you want just click 'Build Levels' on the main screen.

If you really need more help, or are confused,
click

-nm

ps G Eye and Ziki, your posts are extremely difficult to understand, please try and make it so that anyone can understand what you mean.

Also, if this doesn't make much sense I will try to make it more so.

The graphical editor used to make the avatars (and the rest of the graphics for that matter) probably depends on the artist; there is no specific program used (I think).

Personally, I use GIMP. I use existing images or forms and place them on a color gradient, then go in and modify each pixel individually.

I recommend not using my method. -_-
