It's a great way to lift up your 'gamemakering' career with the support of other friendly 'gamemakerers'
Even if you haven't been here from the start, this jam is really open and welcoming, for both beginners and experienced developers. It's a fantastic event to just sit down, make a game and have fun!
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.
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.
