New Game Maker price $25
January 29, 2009
After announcing that the price of Game Maker is due to increase next week Sandy has said that the new cost will be $25, a 5 dollar increase on the current upgrade fee.
However a discount coupon will be placed on the Game Maker Community enabling users to receive a $3 discount on the increased price.

I was thrilled to find out that GM8 costs 25$, but when I went to the GM site and tried to purchase it says that the price is 39.99$. That is almost double.
Has there been another price rise? Are there other regional prices other than UK?
Can I still buy somehow GM8 for 25$?
I’m afraid not. This article is from over two years ago and the price has since increased. I’m not even sure if it is possible to upgrade version 8 anymore as it has been superseded by 8.1 which uses a new registration system.
Uk price is now Â£20 which is around $30 usd but if they are from the uk like me then I’m sure they are intelegent enough to do what I did and slect to pay $25 usd instead and with the current conversion rate it actually only cost me Â£16 for the full version (but really thats just paying the same as yanks pay rather than being ripped off for an extra $5 for no reason).

where is it? the coupon code that is…
Don’t think it ever actually existed in the end.
Wonder what the increased UK price will be, since they’ve said we’ll be hit hardest by the increase.
Keeping the price low is a great idea, 25 bucks is great. Look at iTunes, If you keep the price moderate, people will still pay it even if they can get it elsewhere. You can never stop assholes who try and take advantage anyway.
I agree. I would have expected more than $5 and i would have payed it.
$5 increase? I was expecting like a $15-$20 increase. I like that they are offering a coupon but I don’t think we really need it (It will probably be all over the internet in a few days anyway)
I’m surprised they didn’t do it sooner. I’ve always wondered about how the company keeps itself afloat on ads and a product everyone only buys once.
In my opinion, they shouldn’t even be offering a coupon.
where did sandy say $25? I checked the blog, and I don’t see anything.
He’s right. 🙂
