2009: Most popular GameMaker Blog Articles
December 29, 2009
Five most read articles in 2009:
- For a time in 2007 YoYo Games were hosting a Game Maker 7 Pro crack in their resources section. Despite being notified of its existence it remained online for at least a month.
- Scirra’s Construct is an open source free game development tool. In January I spoke with one of the people behind the project and tried out the software for the first time. In this post I detailed five areas in which Construct was superior to Game Maker. Lots of traffic from StumbledUpon to this one.
- Game Maker 8 second Beta released
- Game Maker 8 second Release Candidate
- We revealed four of the final designs in the competition to design a new logo for Game Maker 8. Alongside the logos was a poll to get the communities opinion. After more than 550 votes YoYo Games announced the winning design – which had come last place in the poll.
Positions 3 to 12 in the most viewed posts list all went to articles relating in some way to the release of Game Maker 8 -be it beta versions, feature lists or something related to the new logo and its rapid replacement.
