***Update*** Sunday (3/2) is the Final Day and it can take a few hours to receive the key and email so make haste.

For a limited time, GameMaker Studio Standard edition is available for free. Valued at $49.99, GameMaker Studio Standard is a significant improvement upon the free version of the software which imposes harsh restrictions on the resources that developers can make use of.

Additionally, developers can use their free Standard edition license to upgrade to the Professional edition (RRP $99.99) for only $35 more. This offer ends March 2, 2014.

Where are you supposed to get the license key from? Signed up for email but they didn't send it.

Tried on a different email and no code again, not sure how you're supposed to be getting this for free.

Thanks for this, and to anyone concerned about not getting a key to register it takes some time for them to send the key, it took half an hour for me.

Took 5 minutes after confirming my email to get a key.

I used to play around with Gamemaker when I was younger, this might just get me back into it.

 

Nothing better than free; Thanks OP!

I'm not entirely sure, but I think this only works on PCs.  It exports to Mac format, but you need a PC to actually run the program.  I may be wrong, but I think that's how it works.  The Steam page only lists Windows OS.

How easy is it to make games with this lol. I've never done such a thing before. I have some knowledge of HTML and Adobe Edge if that helps.

My brother bought this on Steam a few months ago and has already made 3-4 games with it.  He never made games before, though he does work in IT, but I think if you are tech-inclined you should be able to get  a hang of it with enough dedication.

EASY!

 

I used to work for a program where we taught it to 7-14 year old kids. But, we taught them using the graphical interface. No coding involved. You can make a pretty basic SNES type platformer with ease that way. Or a lot of other things using your imagination. Then if you actually code with it you can do a lot more. It has a programming language called GML which I think is kind of like C, but I forget.

I can get some use out of this, I'm sure. Got my license key within seconds of signing up. 

Thanks OP!

i signed up for the newsletter.  don't have time to install the software yet.  I don't have to install the software to get the key right?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I got the key email right after entering my email address into the program when I installed it. But installation really only took maybe 4-5 minutes. Real fast. 

I never even subscribed to the newsletter.

FYI, GameMaker has improved substantially in the last few years so it isn't exclusively being used for terrible student games anymore - Gunpoint and Hotline Miami were both GameMaker games. OP doesn't seem to reflect the fact that it's actually a really decent tool now.

Thanks for this! I am a CSCI major and just started getting into mobile development this semester. Will see what I can do with this software too.

Stoked to get a copy of this.  You have to install it to get the key, but it's pretty fast.  Waiting for the key in email took longer than the install.

 

There's a Tutorial tab as soon as you open it up so that's where I'm starting.

You have to launch it after you install it and it has a box where you can enter your email.
