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 2.24 editions of the gm(48).

If the website went down, we'd lose the amazing 795 games available for any one to freely download and play. The constructive criticism and ratings given by 1547 users would be lost to history.

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

What you think of us

It's the only GameMaker game jam that's worth participating in.

It's well-supported and every time I'm shocked at how good the game entries are!

It pushes me to be a faster, better developer.
