Making a game is something I've been kicking around lately.
No. Game Maker is a phone app. With Unity you could but you'd need a team to build all the assets so it defeats the purpose - unless you could do a KS to build an asset base for unity similar to what you'd find in NWN. That'd be a huge undertaking though. What did it cost and how long did it take for Bioware to get all their immediate assets for NWN made? Same with Cryptic and the new Neverwinter and they already had the Foundry and a lot of assets in place. Still it's take them a few years and many millions so far.
