Game-Maker is a collection of game-making tools and a game engine that enable the user to create games in DOS without the need for any programming knowledge. Users can draw backgrounds, animate and plan monsters, and create characters to move around and attack with weapons. Over the years, upgrades were released which added functionality to the editor, allowing for more complex games.
Music was included in version 1.05 and above and several example songs were included. However, the music was not created specifically for Game-Maker, but was instead a collection of popular ROL files from other shareware games and bulletin board services converted to CMF, probably with Creative Labs' ROL to CMF program. The identity of the original ROL files has been discovered through a collective effort of the Game-Maker community, though, since the ROL format did not store meta data, some of the composers and the arrangers of each track remain unknown.
For some reason, Game-Maker was never released with a song number 3, which is why it is not listed.
