This is a great game jam. I joined this game jam when i was only 2 weeks into coding, and i enjoyed every second.

This project was a lot of fun. I streamed a good majority of my development and had a lot of fun doing so. The drive and push it gives you to make a full, complete project is very valuable.

In my project Countdown is a project in which I have not put all my work, but in The Legend of Princess Kidnap yes. I hope you like it

It was an unique programming experience. It was tiring, but at the end, I was glad that I made game in just 2 days :). I recommend this jam for everyone - from beginners to experts.

Some of the most fun and engaging game developing experiences I've ever had have been during my participation in GM(48).

I encourage all GameMaker enthusiasts to give it a go.

This was my first game jam, and I had a lot of fun! I did a lot more then I could have done normally in a week I think. But anyways, it was a lot of fun, and I'm defiantly going to do another one!

Loved the jam. Teaming up and making something great in 48 hours (with some sleep) was a great experience. If you make stuff in Game Maker, this is the jam for you.

This platform is great for seeing what is possible in 48 hours. Making Color Pickers help point out some issues I run into when making games.

The Jam was a lot of fun! One tip I can give to future participants: Nail down what you want to do as quickly as possible! If you don't, it might come around later and bring unwanted trouble!

No other game jam offers an opportunity to test your skills and learn with a variety of unique themes as much as the GM(48) does. I'd highly recommend it to everyone, from beginners to professionals.

GM48 is an inspiring and inclusive event fit for beginners and veterans alike. There's no better place for GameMaker devs to really come together as a community and show off what they've got.

I was used to procrastination but participating to a game jam made me feel more motivated and I nearly coded during the 48h. That was a very nice experiment !

Why GameMaker

Making games development accessible to everyone means taking away the barriers to getting started. GameMaker has everything you need to take your idea from concept to finished game.

Using the intuitive 'Drag and Drop' development environment you can have your game up and running in a matter of minutes without ever having to write any code! GameMaker's built-in language (GML) helps you learn to program as you go and not jump in at the deep end of coding.

GameMaker is simply perfect for game jams.

It's never too late to get started.

Your next game could be one of these, so why not book a weekend to grow your skills as a developer.
