Announced at the end of last week, YoYo Games has announced an open beta for the Mac client of Game Maker Studio 2.
You can find information and instructions on how to sign up for the open beta at https://www.yoyogames.com/get .
GameMaker Studio 2 on Mac OS is completely on par with its Windows and console siblings, keeping intact the vast upgrades and overhauls made in still-new engine released earlier this year. YoYo Games has developed a product for all levels of expertise as seen with the trademarked Drag and Drop system (DnD™), which translates desired actions into actual, functioning code designed for beginners. Professional developers retain the same powerful programming language and comprehensive set of tools for advance exporting and rapid deployment across all leading platforms including mobile, console and desktop.
“Mac owners love video games just as much as PC or console owners. Bringing GameMaker Studio 2 to Mac will help us reach as many budding or expert developers as possible. With GMS2 we are eliminating the OS roadblock many developers find themselves behind when they want to focus on the Mac platform.” – James Cox, General Manager of YoYo Games.
