GameMaker has been a staple for countless aspiring indie developers, offering a way to get into game design with a low barrier to entry, while still having the tools to create absolutely wonderful and engaging games.

Being a student of game design and development can be time consuming and expensive, sometimes prohibitively so, but we change all that with GameMaker Studio 2. We want to give educational institutions an easy and affordable way to engage students with their passion for game development – no complications or fine text – James Cox, general manager, YoYo Games
