Game Maker Magazine

on February 14, 2008 - 6220 Views

Another new Game Maker Magazine has been launched. Yep that’s its name “Game Maker Magazine”. (gmc link)

Whilst GameMakerTech have to hold a caption competition to come up with a snappy slogan Game Maker Magazine has one from the start: “The Information you need to know, today“. Almost as good as the magazine name I’m sure you agree.

It’s isn’t as bad as gnazine [1] [2], but telling people that they need Adobe Reader in order to read the magazine on page 2 of the magazine suggests that this is another rushed attempt to have GMC fame.

Previewing his own game on page 3 Mattthew_H, the President of Instant Arts, is the one and only contributor to this issue.

The wordsearch on page 4 is a highlight. There are no letters in the grid!

script”s“, “help”s” and an Empire Earth 3 review, oh dear…

On YoYoGames:

So you might get some new things with GM8 but remember that YoYoGames has Gamemaker to deal with, YoYoGames.com, GM registrations (as well with Softwarp) and about a million other things, by the way they aren’t the richest company either why do you thing that yoyogames.com now has advertisement’s all over it?

Shock horror! A software company has to develop its software, maintain its website and handle registrations? As for the ads – hmmm, what do you think?

    Issue 3 will have no typos and beter articles as I am joining the GMM Team, so stop bad-mouthing the magazine.

    I’ve read it. From what I can tell it has more spelling mistakes in one issue the GMTech and Markup have had in all of their issues put together. It needs to be alot better to compete with them.

    Hello everyone,
    (here’s the thing I’m not sure if I’m aloud to post here)
    now i am the creator of GMM and this was the first issue it was more of a test i guess to see what type of a turn out it would get before i make issue two but anyway I’m making issue two and yes this will be allot better than the first with more GM content.

    @GMTech: what do you mean I signed up for a job?
    are you sure it was me?

    Thanks,
    Mattthew_H

    @tuntis: I would like to see your review of the magazine.

    Me and gmjab worked out that this guy recently applied to join GMTech (about three days ago) and was rejected, and now he has a magazine out, so either he spent two days on it, or who only applied to try and still some of our content.

    I am surpised that he even tried to get away with working on both.

    Great, another GM Magazine to join the parade, hopefully this one last longer than gnazine

    Yes I saw that. I think I will be prosecuted now since I quoted what they said about YYG. :O

    not a bad magazine for first issue,
    Since it’s a first issue i give it a 6.9 | 10

    gamez93: With it’s whopping quality, I’m not sure my opinion’s the same…

    Hurray.

  13. tuntis says:

    Although the reason the ads are there is obvious, it’s funny they didn’t even blacklist competing game making suites from the AdSense control panel.

    [ tuntisnote: why is this in a completely unrelated post? :S ]
