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!

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

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

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 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 !

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!

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

It was a gloomy theme for me, and looking back it was fun to make, especially the voice stuff! :D

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.

Fantastic jam to enter! The community have a great buzz and are really friendly, plus the site is really slick too! I've entered a fair share of jams and this is easily one of the best.

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!

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.

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.

I hear many game maker devs talking about gm48 so I decided to try it out myself and it was really fun it pushed me to my limits and made me create new techniques
