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 jam is a blast. It's a lot of fun to see your finished game, and you learn a lot about the development process in the meantime!

GM48 is an inspiring and inclusive event fit for beginners and veterans alike. There's no better place for GameMaker devs to really come together as a community and show off what they've got.

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 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!

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

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 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

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

I certainly learnt quite a bit about making games and am excited for the next game jam.

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.

Joining gm(48) has been a great experience.

I think Simon Milfred and I make a robust team and we have so much fun.

Will do it again!

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