Alpha Particle development started by accident as an experiment while the developer was learning Game Maker Studio in November 2016. At the time he had been using Game Maker Studio and been programming for three months only. So Alpha Particle became his entire learning experience into game development over the next three plus years. It is also worth noting that Game Maker Studio was bought on a Humble Bundle deal for $1, essentially rocketing the developer's career into orbit for a mere dollar! (Thank you Yoyo Games and Humble Bundle!)
