Game Maker Blog

GameMaker Studio version 1.2.1214 was just released, and with it comes an offer to upgrade to the Standard edition free of charge. Valued at $50, 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 for only $50 more. It’s likely that this is a time-limited offer, so if you’re using the free version of GameMaker Studio be sure to act quickly

The option to upgrade to Standard is displayed after starting GameMaker Studio. Make sure you have updated to version 1.2.1214 of GameMaker Studio. As the update is part of the beta updates channel, you may need to right click the GameMaker icon in your system tray and select the correct updates channel.

Nope, can't confirm this, don't get that offer. There's a popup telling me to update to professional now, but it says $99.99 :/

You are my hero, I probable would have missed it if you didn't inform us. Thanks.

Also random fact: Hotline Miami and Spelunky were made with Game Maker. So It's not a childrens software, you can create great games with it.

I didn't receive the e-mail with my registration code ;~;

When I used a plus address, I didn't either. But I then tried the same email without a plus, and that worked, so at least the initial registration isn't a one-time deal and you can try again.

I did click the link, and I still don't understand...
My email is genericaddress@gmail.com, i never added any subadress tag to it, so how do i remove the plus from it if i didnt even know there was a plus in the first place? x.x

If you did not add + then you don't have to remove it. You should edit your post and remove the address, before some spam bot gets it.

Ah I just came here to share that bit of information. It took about an hour and a half after I subscribed to the Tizen mailing list to get my new key. But! It definitely states I have the professional edition now. :D

I got GameMaker: Studio Professional (Tizen), but I don't know where to activate it. :P In Help/Update License it doesn't work as a Primary License or in Modules. I tried to submit my Standard Edition key as the Primary and Tizen in Modules, but that doesn't work either. Anybody?

Awesome, thanks for the update, now to install those SDKs and get cracking. Checked out the options looks like a golden way to get GM Pro for free. Thanks.

Wish I could rate this thread and both the OP and you up for this.
