Your local Game Maker Community

on April 17, 2009 - 35766 Views

Game Maker users come from all around the worldIf you are not from a country where the predominantly spoken language is English you may prefer to visit an unofficial localised Game Maker forum.  About a year ago I wrote a post listing the membership numbers of various Game Maker websites and I included a section on none-English forums.

As that is now a little out of date and because I have come across more forums I have decided to create a new list.  Since last year the Nederlandse Game Maker Community has more than doubled in size, new forums have been added to the list, some forums have seen a decrease in membership and some (Japanese) are currently down for maintenance.

If you know of any foreign language game maker forums that are not listed below please post them in the comments so they can be added to the list.

    @Blue, wow coincidence: I was about to post the same but you were just 6 hours earlier (and the reply before that is months ago)!

    Yeah, GMClan got in 3rd place! I’m so proud of us! 😉

  6. @Blijbol Thanks for that. Is interesting to see the graph of the member count as well.

  7. ESA says:

    Damn, I didn’t know a Turkish one even existed! Thanks for the find.

    I’m sorry to disappoint myself, but I don’t think we actually doubled the member count in a year. Simple Machines Forum appears to count non-activated accounts on the statistics page, but it does not count these towards the total member count.

    Here’s a visualization:

    Anyway, I didn’t know the Spanish were that close to us.

    Game Maker Polska must be two,got 4,800 users but 216,598 posts.

    • I just placed them in descending order by highest member count per language thought that was better than just a random listing.
      But on post count Polska is just behind Nederlandse 🙂

  10. Since you’ve mentioned a few smaller forums I think it’s useful to also note http://www.gmot.nl/. It’s a spin-off from the Nederlandse Game Maker Community, and it happens to be run by the same administrators.

    Good to see the Dutch are still first :). Not that there can ever be any doubt about that :P.

    Quite a few websites there Phil.
    Most I didn’t even know of. Surprised however to see some with so many members.
