“Offcial Video Website” [sic]

Introducing the snappily titled “Game Maker Users Helper – The Offcial Video Website” which can be found at the equally easy to remember URL of http://gamemakerusershelper-theoffcialvideowebsite.magnify.net Recent months have seen a number of Game Maker video sites come and go. The biggest and most successful being Dan Egger’s GMTV, but we have also seen releases from Game Maker Helper Videos and GM Code Project. The very misleading name of this new project by GMC member Read more…


Hardcoregamer actually does something useful

…With his “Katchup” blog. An interview with Danny, a GMB writer and the head of GMTV reveals that the fourth episode will be released on “June 23 or earlier”. According to Danny, the release date “is not correct”. Be sure to check out his other posts full of useful information.


GMTV – Dead or Alive

After very little word of an Episode 4 from the guys over at GMTV many began to fear that another GM related publication had bitten the dust. Well many people could just be right after the lost of Co-Owner Brad (who also writes here) and musician Sebastian. Dan announced that Gamemaker TV is on hold and also assured us that an ‘episode will be released I just don’t know when’. If I was the owner Read more…


GMTV 3 detailed review

…by everybody’s favorite [sic] writer. I have to say, to begin this with, the third episode greatly increased the quality of GMTV compared to the past two episodes. I won’t be jumping into the technical aspects until the end — I’ll focus on the content. The main content in this episode is reviewing the 10 “best games” for YoYo Games’ winter competition. The review system seems to have changed according to the criticism received. During Read more…


GMTV, episode 3

…is out.  Featuring a lot of reviews and an interview with a GMNews/GMTech writer, Bendodge, which GMTV’s page bizarrely describes as "an interview with a writer from both Skorptek’s "Game Maker Blog" and for "Game Maker News"". My review of it coming soon. What’d you think?


GMTV Title Sequence

Danny has released a video showing the evolution of the GameMaker-TV.com introduction sequence. Not something I was expecting. It’s all well and good making this video which I suppose could be of interest to GMTV enthusiasts, but with only two full episodes made I can’t help but feel this was released a year too early and perhaps the focus should have been put on producing the third episode. That said creating new content is hard. Read more…


GameMaker-Tv.com Episode 2

Bored at Christmas? The Christmas themed Epsiode 2 of Danny’s GameMaker-TV.com has been released. To quote Danny “it isn’t very good but it’s not the worst thing you can find”, and I agree. It is an improvement on the first episode, however I’m not sure that a TV show is the best way to present the kind of information that Danny gets across in this video.


GMTV Finally Out

So, GameMaker TV is finally here. The reception at the GMC appears to be pretty even, there are some shortcomings and disappointments (why do people get their hopes up so high?), but there also appear to be quite a large group of people who were pleasantly surprised with the result. As for my opinion? Well I’m glad Danny finally got something out. The background music, which may well be from the featured games, is irritating Read more…
