Are you saying Gamemaker can't make the games you want? Or you just don't want to use Gamemaker? Gamemaker Studio is definitely setup to create something like you want, it just all depends on who's doing the scripting.

I would highly recommend looking in to Unity to create something like this, especially the second example. The free version would have everything you would want, it's extremely well documented, and has been out for a while, so there's a LOT of support for it. It will also pretty much compile to any platform of your choice. Unity is becoming more accessible to artists that don't have any programming experience, because they offer some incredible assets that take care of most of the heavy lifting. For instance:

ORK Okashi RPG Kit

Which would eliminate a lot of scripting required.

However if you're dead set on not even dipping your toe in, you could always try the community at:


And see if there's someone there who's looking to pair up with you in the Collaborations section. Good luck to you! Your art talent is definitely there, so I can't see it being too hard for you to create what you want if you put your mind to it.
Love old text based RPGs? MUDs? Try Shadows of Kalendale:
