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

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.

Great way to practice your skills. Creativity through restriction is a great way to come up with good ideas.

The reviews are also good and give fair criticism that helps you improve.

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

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!

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!

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

GM48 rocks! I have learned so much during the 3 times my team has participated. The themes put us out of our comfort zone, and we learned so much in such a short time. Can't wait to go again!

No other game jam offers an opportunity to test your skills and learn with a variety of unique themes as much as the GM(48) does. I'd highly recommend it to everyone, from beginners to professionals.

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

Will do it again!

Why GameMaker

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.

It's never too late to get started.

Your next game could be one of these, so why not book a weekend to grow your skills as a developer.
