How do you mod the game? I'd like to make a character for it -do i require gamemaker for this? 

Check "scripting" - "getting started" page on wiki (linked on itch page). You don't need GameMaker, only a code editor and a web browser to check general GM (docs.yoyogames.com) and NTT-specific ("scripting" section on wiki) documentation.
