What program was used to make Fatal Hearts?

Just like the title states, can anyone tell me what program was used to make Fatal Hearts? I need to make a similar type of game for my Games Development course so any information or suggestions regarding this will help greatly. Thanks!

If you need to make a visual novel, you're best off using RenPy. That's *not* what was used for Fatal Hearts, but it's designed for VNs and is fairly easy to use.

Fatal Hearts itself is made using Game Maker, because of the wide variety of puzzles - while they're *possible* to program in RenPy if you know what you're doing with Python, it's much easier to make them in GM. So if you need to make an adventure game with a wide variety of puzzles in a hurry, GM might be what you want.
