YoYo Games Wiki to Grow
September 21, 2008
Mark Overmars has expressed his desire to turn the currently pathetic wiki on YoYo Games into a central source of GameMaker information.
“As some of you might have noticed we have changed the Wiki to use the well-known MediaWiki software. Our hope is that the wiki becomes the best source of information about the use of Game Maker. Currently this information is spread all over the internet. The GMC stores a number of useful tutorials, some website store some tutorials and examples, there are some useful files in the resource section of YoYo Games etc. It is difficult to find and the information is often not updated and improved. The wiki is perfect for that.”

A good idea. But there are already a few well established GameMaker wiki’s such as GMPedia and gamemaker.wikicomplete.info. Not sure they will be too pleased… Still, as the company behind GameMaker, is this not the kind of thing that YoYo Games should be doing? I’m sure some of you have strong opinions.

Perhaps it’s an opportunity for GMKing to step in?
Perhaps. Perhaps not.
^ hehe. Yeah, already 590 useful articles on GMpedia, yoyo should really be looking for some sort of merge, save a lot of hassle.
I doubt this will become anything. In other news, I invite everybody to contribute to GMPedia! 😉
I hope there’s a chance of cooperation between the two services rather than having one trying to overshadow the other.
