GameMaker Studio Standard Edition Is Currently Free
« on: November 27, 2013, 04:11:16 PM »
Yup what the title says.

Just when I get back to game making after a few years hiatus, how lucky? 8) I won't be using it though, GM is great but it's really cluttered IMO (for what I wanna do anyway...well I installed it and registered myself for a license key, you never know :P).

Venyux here btw, how are you Xfixium? :)

Great news dude, I hope I can do the same next year, been with her for nearly 4 years, I guess the time has come  now ;)

Are you still doing programming jobs?  I know you enjoy that but weren't you more interested in arts?

It got short distance!? Nice one man! So did mine. Living here in America for about 7 months now.

Good to hear you're well.

Well good luck my friend. It was nearly two years for me. Yeah programming, I'm still doing that. I just recently got job in July and I love it. I do some art stuff from time to time, or when it's necessary, but I'm not heavily focused on it like I used to be. My GF is an artist and it's how we met really. She's always nagging me to get back into it. She talked me into doing some sculpting recently.

Yeahhhhhh well I barely touched my Wacom. I actually used it to create the The Great Deku tree for OOT2D FSA. Plus I've used it for another project that I cannot reveal at this time. I still have it, but my girl's pet rabbit has chewed on the damn cable! Surprised it still works.

I'm hoping to reveal more of what's in the works soon, but it's app development and there are more stakeholders than just myself.

It's pretty sweet. Definitely a lot different! Been doing lots of things and stuff.

I'm currently using Unity to develop a Facebook game with a couple people.

I got the master collection back in the beginning of the year when it was a cheap 500 dollars. I haven't messed with it too much though.

Found this: http://gmc.yoyogames.com/index.php?showtopic=601824 Not sure why but YoYo Games keep doing offers these days, are they short on money? lol  Anyway GM is a real clusterfuck nowadays when compared to older versions, I don't know if it's just me but I find it pretty hard to stay organized.

Edit: This offered has now expired as of December 3, 2013.
