I participate in GM48 as often as I can! Every time I learn something new and improve! It's always nice to complete a project and receive feedback from the community. 10/10 would recommend.

This was my first game jam, and I had a lot of fun! I did a lot more then I could have done normally in a week I think. But anyways, it was a lot of fun, and I'm defiantly going to do another one!

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.

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!

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

It was an unique programming experience. It was tiring, but at the end, I was glad that I made game in just 2 days :). I recommend this jam for everyone - from beginners to experts.

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!

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

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.

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 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

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.

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.

Participating in the jam was a lot of fun, I really enjoyed seeing enthusiastic updates from great creators who were jamming at the same time I was.

First GM48 was very over ambitious and it turned out to be a hot mess. Met some very nice people and will hopefully work with them in the future

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!

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.
