GM48 rocks! I have learned so much during the 3 times my team has participated. The themes put us out of our comfort zone, and we learned so much in such a short time. Can't wait to go again!

I learnt a lot about time management and design. It was a lot of fun and I will be back next round!

Great way to practice your skills. Creativity through restriction is a great way to come up with good ideas.

The reviews are also good and give fair criticism that helps you improve.

To participate in a gamejam is yet the only way for me to get a game done and to get people playing it too.

GM48 is a great way to start developing games or test your gamemaking skills.

I got called in to make SFX because the musician originally on the team didn't want to do it. I spent 30 minutes in bfxr and with my sound libraries making some effects. 10/10 fun experience

GM48's game jams are pretty challenging, as there are a lot of awesome and talented artists, designers and coders who participate in them.

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

Participating in GM48 was great! I've never felt this motivated to make something ever before. I'm definitely going to try and participate in future GM48s.

Joining gm(48) has been a great experience.

I think Simon Milfred and I make a robust team and we have so much fun.

Will do it again!

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.

I had a great time on this game jam. I found out about it the morning it started by a post on /r/gamemaker, so I'd like to thank the organisers for putting the word out there.

I had a great time participating in gm(48) number 30. I was lucky and everything just seemed to gel. This is my first successful game jam with Game Maker so I was happy it went well!

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.

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.

Abyss

What would you develop?

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.
