Why we need it

gm(48)

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 2.14 editions of the gm(48).

If the website went down, we'd lose the amazing 961 games available for any one to freely download and play. The constructive criticism and ratings given by 2911 users would be lost to history.

The 29th gm(48) could be the last.

What we've made possible

What you think of us

the game was a real fun experience we at P.E.N.I.S are good friends and actually quite enthusiast of the game making, we decided to make this kind of game and not the platformer most people are making(and we concidered to make) because we wanted to have a great first time on GM48 and the expierience was better than expected and i really hope the team gets together again next time, even if we get last place it's all been very good fun!

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 not just a jam it is a fun way to test our knowledge.It makes us think in different ways to come up with good ideas.I think everyone should try it.While I was creating Static I learned a lot about pixel art and my weaknesses in game development.I really enjoyed it.
