No matter your skill level with gamemaker, gm48 is great. It was my first game jam ever and I don't regret it at all, the feeling of community, simple website and rules, all lead to a wonderful and inspiring experience.

GM48 is my absolute favorite jam to participate in. Everyone is very friendly and it's a great way to meet other Gamemaker developers while getting great practical experience with the software. I highly recommend that you join the Discord server to really complete the experience!

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.
