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!

GM48 pushed me to finally make something small and release it. This will be my first released game since 10 years. I had a lot of fun and I'm really impressed with myself. I learned a lot!

I've had a lot of fun making a game for this jam. Making a game in 48 hours isn't as hard as it sounds but it's definitely really tiring. Well, at least I'm kind of satisfied with my result!

This was my first time participating, and I really enjoyed it! I guess that's all there is to say, besides that I am definitely participating again for the next gm48!

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.

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.

This is the best GameDev related event I have ever had the honor to participate in. I had a blast working on the games and it's an experience no one should miss :D

GM48 was difficult but rewarding. Two days don't seem as much time but many things can be made in this timespan.

It was fun to make a game about a kid shooting down an internet company under 48 hours

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

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.

First time in Gm48. Really tough for me and my team because we had been too ambitious and the low experience didn't help! Anyway, very funny, I will participate again.

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

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.

The GM48 is the perfect way for me to rekindle my love for game making. Every time I participate I can see a gradual improvement in my abilities and quality of my games.

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.
