GameMaker users will surprise themselves with how much they learn and create in 48 hours.

The gm(48) is a great challenge with an amazing community and quality games resulting from it.

Get involved!

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.

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!

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!

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.

It was fun to make a game about a kid shooting down an internet company under 48 hours

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!

No other game jam offers an opportunity to test your skills and learn with a variety of unique themes as much as the GM(48) does. I'd highly recommend it to everyone, from beginners to professionals.

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.

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.

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.

I didn't expect to learn SO MUCH about making and finishing games before participating for the first time. I had a blast and working on a project never has been this fun!

Did my first game jam ever for the 24:th gm48. It was an amazing way of learning how to manage your time and come up with new solutions and rapid prototyping. The community is also super helpful with feedback on how to better your gamedev skills.

I highly suggest anyone dabbling with GameMaker to be apart of this community and take part in this awesome game jam!

I am a hobbyist GMS:2 user, with aspirations to make a game good enough to publish some day. Every game jam I participate in improves my understanding of the tool and helps me understand the system better. This game was no different.

Something I've seen before but never think about until I'm packaging is that HTML5 does not always behave exactly as the windows version. My opening screen had to be replaced with the screenshot of the Windows version which rendered correctly.

Experimenting with movement methods, vs using a tried and true method, wasn't the best idea. As I progressed in the coding I realized I hadn't always taken into account the interaction between collision masks correctly, which led to quite a bit of rework.

Almost every previous game jam I've worked on has been a single room game and I realized pretty late I don't have a strong grasp on room changes. All in all this was a great experience. --I just wish I'd had had time for sound and music. --Have a great day and good luck!

This was my first game jam ever. I honestly didn't think I'd be able to pull it off in the time allotted especially since I had other obligations. I really enjoyed taking the concept into full effect. I tried to come up with many ways to use the one tool in my game. The nature of the game jam also pushed me outside of my comfort zone because I didn't know a lot of what I was trying to do so it was a great learning process for me. I hope to be able to continue and do future game jams and most of all to keep learning.

If you work with GameMaker, then this is the jam to enter.

4 times a year the community comes together to create a bunch of wonderful games. The creativity and motivation that springs forth is unbound, and you really can't avoid getting into that real jammin' mood talking to everyone else on the Discord server and seeing everyone's games progress throughout the weekend.

A substantial amount of the skills I have as a developer have been picked up during a gm(48). You will always learn something new.

With this being our first game jam, and with myself and DillonSemaj only having been working with game dev and GM:S for about 4 months, nerves were pretty tense going into the first day...

Until we got about 3 hours in and realized how quickly and efficiently we were working compared to the our previous project. Even though we still had plenty to design and incorporate, the things that originally took us weeks to accomplish we were now getting done in a matter of hours.

That's not to stroke our own egos. It's a comment on how something like gm48 can really show someone how far they've progressed. I was not even planning on entering into this jam, for fear of a significant lack in ability, but my partner said "we might as well" and we accomplished something we find to be considerable with the time allotted to us.

So thanks to him, and thanks to the individuals who host gm48. You've all showed me that, while I have much more to learn, I don't completely suck at this.

This was my first time participating, and I really enjoyed it! I guess that's all there is to say, besides that I am definitely participating again for the next gm48!

Participating in the jam was a lot of fun, I really enjoyed seeing enthusiastic updates from great creators who were jamming at the same time I was.
