Little Town is an official GameMaker Studio 2 tutorial

In a special partnership, Creative Director Benjamin Rivers worked with YoYo Games Ltd., creators of popular game-development software GameMaker Studio 2 in 2021. Benjamin designed, documented and produced a whopping nine-hour video tutorial series that takes budding developers through the challenge of creating a small and charming little adventure game called Little Town.

From the official page:

The tutorial enables students, hobbyists and new game designers to create their own layout for Little Town and use code to bring it and its people to life. Users will also be able to choose where to hide each item, as well as writing their own hints and dialogue. With over eight hours of video tutorials as well as a wealth of supporting materials. The Little Town tutorial teaches many core skills from creating vibrant animations using GameMaker’s powerful Sequences tool to controlling sprites, sounds and laying-out the playing area - providing the perfect introduction to GameMaker Studio 2 and the fundamental principles of game design.

Benjamin would know a thing or two about GameMaker Studio 2 — the studio's first three games were all created with the powerful, flexible software!
