Why we need it


The gm(48) is a quarterly 48 hours GameMaker game jam from the community of /r/GameMaker . It is organized and kept up to date by Peter 'tehwave' Jørgensen, who also pays for the website and its upkeep.

In the past, the website was a part of a shared server deal, which meant a low monthly bill, but limited resources. As the gm(48) grows, so does the need for more memory, better processing and larger storage space. The website has crashed before due to the large influx of submissions.

We continue to upgrade the website as the need grows, and right now, it is just capable of keeping up with the large demand of the many participants that we see every gm(48). The new website costs $25 every month, a total of $300 for a year – not including any additional fees. If every developer of the last gm(48) donated the price of a coffee, we will have covered the costs for another 2.24 editions of the gm(48).

If the website went down, we'd lose the amazing 739 games available for any one to freely download and play. The constructive criticism and ratings given by 1338 users would be lost to history.

The 26th gm(48) could be the last.

What we've made possible

What you think of us

Participating in the GM48 has been a big milestone for me. GameMaker has been my gateway into programming, and GM48 has been a huge boost in my confidence as a game developer. The feedback has been great, and the people are awesome. The games I've had the chance to play have all been really cool and creative, and it's an honor to have mine among them. Big thanks to everybody who put this on!




Some of the most fun and engaging game developing experiences I've ever had have been during my participation in GM(48).

I encourage all GameMaker enthusiasts to give it a go.




Joining gm(48) has been a great experience.

I think Simon Milfred and I made a robust team and we had so much fun.

Will do it again!
