YoYo Games, the developers of GameMaker Studio, have posted a new tech blog article discussing how to properly scale games to fit various devices and resolutions.
The two-part series, aimed at intermediate and experienced users, focuses on manipulating the GUI layer and views using the GameMaker language.

“Scaling your game can be a headache for many users and hopefully through these articles we can help to make it a simpler task and provide you with a framework within which to get the correct results every time.”

“Making your game fill the whole device display is easy, but making it fill the display and look correct (ie: no blurring or stretching) is not, so in this tech blog we will cover various different methods that you can choose from to scale the game properly.”
