    For sprite resources from basically every game ever, visit

    For backgrounds from a ton of different games, try out

    Background Headquarters hasn’t updated in forever, but they should still be a valuable resource (I wouldn’t imagine someone would pay for the hosting/domain name just to let the site be broken and worthless).

    For help getting started with “parenting” (aka code inheritance) in GameMaker, I found this UCSC lecture. It’s from 2006 but it deals more with the ideas than the code, so it isn’t too outdated.
