GM on Steam

Posted by firestormx on Oct. 2, 2012, 8:02 p.m.

I know, this sounds like a rip-off of my previous blog about a GM example on Steam, but it's totally not!

GameMaker: Studio is on steam.

Scary.

That Kind Midas guy is a dick, Rez.

I might be more inclined to think otherwise if it seemed like he even understood what Game Maker is or how it works.

The way I look at it, it's just an engine, a file manager, and a compiler in one neat package. I don't understand where people seem to get this idea that Game Maker works on a push-button, receive-game mode of game design..

Yeah, I agree. Just seeing all those shit games there makes me reevaluate how much time I should be sinking into GM.

Shoot. Just saw this and was about to post about it. Dang ninjas.

Also, the new interface is terrible.

I jokingly raged about this on the IRC, but this doesn't do anything to my stance about Gamemaker.

It's an okay program that allows morons to get off.

I've seen some really shitty drawings made with mechanical pencil on paper.

Doesn't stop me from drawing with mechanical pencil on paper.

Exactly, it's kinda like the argument "stupid people live in america. I'm leaving america." Only slightly different.

You don't have to stop living in america, Charlie.

I want to live in another country because I want to experience what it's like to live in a different culture.

But let's not get off topic.

I was making a metaphor.

Gamemaker is America.

Then my response could be applied to both.

That'd be, like, the best plot twist ever. A "Technically, you fucked Marla" moment. Almost everyone on 64digits is in college, is anyone in film school? You could sell this screenplay for millions. If they've made a Battleships movie then they can make a Game Maker movie.
