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

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

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 !

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.
