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 have upgraded the website as the need grows, and it is just capable of keeping up with the large demand of the numerous 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 3.11 editions of the gm(48).

If the website went down, we'd lose the amazing 676 games available for any one to freely download and play. The constructive criticism and ratings given by 980 users would be lost to history.

The 24th gm(48) could be the last.

GM(48) never fails to inspire and motivate me to make a game.

The community is awesome and I would've never made so many games without it.

It's the perfect balance between playing and making!

To raise everyones artistic knowledge!

Yes, if you didn't notice, GM48 is a game jam, but it's a very special one. This is simply because our large Game Maker community has a gigantic amount of the nicest people here!

The jam would never be as enjoyable as it is without everyone!

You will always get something from it, even if you think you know everything!

Challenge yourself!
