The Raycasting Game Maker is a free easy to use game editor that creates simple raycasting games in the style of Wolf3D. The finished game needs only two files to run, an executable and a pak file with the game data. The game runs in Windowed- or Fullscreen Mode and supports 16 and 32 bit color.

I don't know who the makers of RGM are, I'm just adding it to ModDB as I made a game using it.

RGM 4.50 has been released!! You can now change the bullet speed using a config file located in the rgmsys folder. You just edit the bullet number (1-5) you want to change the speed for and then save the config file. The next update has to do with sound. The bullets now have sound effects that didn't work in the previous release. The sound effects are associated with the player bullet sounds. For example, if you have a sound effect for bullet 1 when you shoot, that same sound effect will be used for enemy bullet 1 when they shoot. That's it for now. Hope you enjoy.

Are there any engines that allow me to make games more like doom, you know, with stairs, and lighting effects, more than 5 enemies, and more than six guns.

Well yes, the Doom engine (duh :P) or the Build engine (which was used for Duke Nukem 3D). Build is a little more advanced, but I personally think the tools for editing Doom are more user friendly (and stable).

I can't find any tutorials for making sprites for this engine, don't really want to download them from the net, just feels like I'm plagarizing.

It's difficult to make a tutorial on spriting, since it's like drawing and people can comfortably find their own way.

For example, the tutorial would depend on which program you used. I personally use Paint.NET to make sprites (I'd recommend Paint.NET, it's easy to use like Paint, but with many more features).

I usually zoom right in, and make the sprite pixel by pixel, for the best result. This shouldn't take too long due to the small image sizes used by RGM. Sometimes I use texturing programs such as mapzone, to make textures for sprites, then layer the textures into the sprite.

Other things you could do are draw the sprites by hand then scan them in and edit them, if you have a scanner.

BTW, you can use other peoples images as long as you follow their license. For example, if it's a CC-BY license, reference them in the credits. Most images would probably have a Creative Commons (CC) license. If it's copyrighted/trademarked, I'd recommend not using it.

I could try making some sort of tutorial to help if you want?

This looks great! I'm all new to everything hat has with game-development to do. Might be a good idea to start with this engine to get going somewhere? Seems very easy to use.
