The upper price tiers also contain HTML5, Android, iOS and UWP export modules.


Original post: Game Maker: Studio Professional for $6
Spoiler: show
As the title says: Humble Weekly Bundle has GMS Pro, a software priced normally at $149.99, for a mere $6. Also appears to include Android Export Module if you pay $12 instead.

Grabbing this instantly myself.

Looks cool. As an aside I really like the gameplay idea behind Spoiler Alert, it's too bad the art looks like z-grade Flash vector shit.

It looks like their account management site thingy is 1) still in beta 2) under heavy traffic, so I still haven't been able to activate GMS due to a bunch of "Something went wrong, try again in a few seconds" messages. I just want to confirm & make this real as quick as possibleeeee

edit: Eh, whatever for now. I hope they've fixed their sites enough so I can redeem my code by the time I wake up tomorrow...

This is a beautiful thing and naturally I've taken advantage of this and also paid extra to get the Android module. That's $250 USD (some 95% off if I did my maths right) of savings right there, never mind the various indie games I've never heard of and the source code for most of them (which is also cool especially as some of them are made in GM too).

Took only 7 hours and a ticket on Humble customer service to actually get my codes in the first place, only to find that account.yoyogames.com has completely and utterly crashed and burned. :lol:

But, you don't need to redeem the keys to start making games!

Let the servers recover while you actually make the games.. :)

This is true, especially now with unlimited resources restored to its former glory, but if you don't have GMS already installed unless it's the Steam version you'll be in for a headache.

That being said Yoyo just posted apparently improvements in the server backend are getting people through now so who knows.

Bump.

Redeemed my code a couple hours ago. The GM servers have finally gotten over the deadly traffic, just as BP implied.

Only little more than 19 hours left at the time of writing. No more time for hesitation!

I brought this too. Might try making a shmup with it in the future.

Wait a second.

Did I just get YoYo Compiler with the Android module? Can anyone with the 6$ tier confirm, do you see (YYC)-things under the target platform drop menu?

The drop-down menu shows all possible exports, not just the ones you own. You're better off looking in the About... section where it shows your license, program version and what modules are actually installed.

I do notice though that several modules have had price hikes since I last saw them - Android + YYC is now some $300! Talk about a Woolworths/Wal-Mart style sale there, drop the prices down for a sale and then double the original price to compensate afterwards.

Oh, YoYo Compiler seems to be a default feature in Professional. Neat! I was fixated only on the different OS exports earlier.

Though I kind of think the compiler should be a basic feature and - not that I know much about the business side of things - the 150$ price tag is just too steep for that basic feature, too. This has been a delightful bundle, but I feel sorry for those who miss this.

What exporters does the base PWYW tier include? Windows/Mac/Linux?

Yeah, Professional has Win/Mac/Lin ("desktop") exporters by default. According to the help file, though, you will need a Mac computer to make use of the Mac exporter.
I don't think it has any other exporters (except for obviously YoYo's own proprietary player), but I think it does at least have some "testing" exporters that you can use before actually buying the real thing.


Anyways, this is an insane deal. I only dabble with GM, really, but I went ahead and bought this because why the fuck not!

My understanding is that all exporters now have "test" versions you can try and use but you won't be able to do exports with unless you buy. I'm missing the HTML5 module myself so I may buy it again just for that and the other games.

And again. Curiously, seems like the exact same deal as last year, just now with GMS2 being out there too. The word on the street (or at least some) says it's still in a really rough state though, so a cent is in no way a bad price for GMS1.

Worth noting if you're aiming for GMS2 though:

Hate to burst any bubbles, but it costs $1.00 to get Gamemaker: Studio Pro. $0.01 gets you nothing this go around as far as I can tell.

Ah, correct you are. Title fixed.

So it's actually 100 times the price I advertised it for, but still worth it I think. Wowie!

Heh, true. I've been thinking about getting it and seeing what I could teach myself to make. I'd love to try my hand at making a simple scrolling shmup, even if it was just one level or a Space Invaders clone.
