Thanks, Allar! Good luck with your new project!
Who just carries around $250.000 worth of files on a portable hardrive without any backups.. The bug is stupid, but this guy is a moron.
Michael Allar here. Thanks a bunch for posting this, I really appreciate it. I'm also the guy who wrote that Confessions article that was posted here on 80.lvl as well.
YoYo Games officially announced GameMaker Studio 2, the next evolution of its game development tool. The software has been rewritten from the ground up and now features a whole new codebase, UI and GameMaker.
Rather than purchasing modules, you will be able to purchase stand alone licenses for GameMaker Studio 2 on a per platform basis. For example, if you are only developing for web, you only ever need to purchase a web license.
At launch, a GameMaker Studio 2 desktop license (allowing export to Windows, Linux and Mac) will be available for a one time purchase of $99.99*
A Trial version of GameMaker Studio 2 will be available for free, to allow you to explore all of the new innovations on offer. The Trial version will come with limitations on the number of resources a single project can hold and does not allow exporting final executables.
A full list of system requirements can be found here.
Follow this Guide to sign up and get your hands on GameMaker Studio 2 for a first look.
