Look what came through my door

A print version of the MarkUp Game Maker magazine.

Above: Cover

Below: Double page spread, page 17 (on the right) featuring my review of Forted.

Oh alright, not really. It didn’t come through my door, but it does exist.

A source tells me that GMKing are, or were, investigating producing a printed version of MarkUp.

My personal opinion is I doubt we’ll ever see anything happen, but you never know.

Also today http://markup.gmking.org was given a new design, but no YoYoGames branding….? And wait, no, surely not – the Game Maker Affiliation Service code is also gone.

  • I’m not online 24/7 – I do have to sleep and go to school you know….
    I waited to see if it would be out, but it was never quite finished.
    Anyhow, I’ll get something written about it,… probably.

  • Well…as YYG and GM expands, so too might MarkUp. And maybe some day there will be demand for a printed copy.

    It looks so sweet printed though. You can’t really appreciate it when looking at just a .pdf file.

  • Yes, were is the key word there.
    The cost makes it unviable when someone is always going to be able to knock up a free pdf.

  • Heh, very nice, I was gona do this to just to have one w/ my trig article, but the printing services around my area are awefull (or way to expensive)… It’d be cool if Markup could have a print version though, I wonder if you could get enough readers off the GMC to support it? (Probably not considering they’ll all wonder where the free online copies went)

  • “A source tells me that GMKing are, or were, investigating producing a printed version of MarkUp.”
    -> “were” is the keyword.
    “My personal opinion is I doubt we’ll ever see anything happen, but you never know.”
    -> that makes two of us
    “And wait, no, surely not – the Game Maker Affiliation Service code is also gone.”
    -> soon, soon 😀
