    Hi, lauri_27. When you ask about the "pages" I guess you mean the programs I mentioned for making videogames. Personally, the one I've been using the most for a few years now is RPG Maker. It has a very good community where you can get manuals and tutorials:
    Like everything else, learning to use it takes time, but it is still quite intuitive. The secret is to try and test the options you have.
    On the other hand, I tried Game Maker recently and you can download it for free from the official YoYo Games website (with fewer applications than the paid version, but it's very good). Game Maker comes with an integrated tutorial that teaches you the basics of the program.
    I advise you to look for a tutorial for the program you decide to use and do it step by step, it is the best way to learn.
