Looking at gmlscripts.com following a suggestion from Leif902 brought something back into my mind. Dissociation.
Dissociation: describes the disconnection or lack of connection between things usually associated with each other.
At the bottom of every page of the GMLScripts website there is a line which reads
GMLscripts.com is not affiliated with Mark Overmars, The Game Maker Company, or YoYo Games.
A single sentence which makes it clear that GML Scripts is not part of the same group as the above mentioned entities. I have seen similar sentences around the Internet for example on sites about AdSense dissociating themselves with Google and on unofficial sites devoted to certain topics.
When I was setting up this blog in April I considered adding a similar sentence to the footer of the site, but I didn’t. True adding it may help boost my search rankings by increasing the concentration of the words “Game Maker” on the site but I never got around to it.
Personally I don’t think I will add a dissociation statement on gamemakerblog unless some confusion arises or I get a letter from the incompetent people at YoYoGames (whoops, I probably will now). Of course I should backup my claim with evidence so here goes:
- GM Rumours: YYG’s terms, Gamemaker Trademark
- GMC topics: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8
unbelievable unbelievably-none-existent customer support they have.

It’s far too blatent, the pipes at GMKing must be made of water – constant leaks.
Obviously an attempt to stir up publicity, are you waiting for the leak to reach the GMC?
heh made me laugh 😛
(Yup, That’s all folks)
Oh you mean the photo,…
I’ve found more evidence since…but I shan’t reveal my sources (though they’re pretty damn obvious :D)
My suspissions were first arroused when I saw Robin and Eyas being given a big bag of money in the YoYoGames offices which is opposite my flat. I didn’t think anything of it at the time. But now you come to mention it, it all seems so clear.
Well. I’ve put my suspicions in my blog. I may be wrong though 😛 I often am.
If you want me to change anything, just say. I don’t want to spoil your big moment when you announce your official bond with YoYo Games as partners, you developing their magazine and suchlike.
I’m confused, Eyas. Everyone at GM King keeps dropping hints about something they plan to do with YoYo Games…what’s going on?!
At least I didn’t call them impotent
I will neither confirm nor deny.
😛 Ooh, goody, a markup review.. /me reads
Don’t call YoYo games incompetent.. You’ll soon know why..
