Yesterday a post was made on this site which claimed to show a leaked screenshot of Game Maker 8.
The image supplied was clearly not genuine and I would have thought this would be blatantly obvious to anyone viewing it. Therefore I was extremely disappointed to logon this morning and see that our latest article was about this single image which was no doubt knocked-up in a couple of minutes by a sad attention seeking individual. I am saddened that a GMB author chose to write a post about this which was originally titled “Gamemaker 8.0 Leaked”. This story should not have been written on Game Maker Blog and has now been removed.
“C’mon Game Maker Blog, I expected better from you. This is the type of thing I expected from Scorptek or Recreate, but not from you.
This screenshot is so tiny it can’t be scrutinized properly. Even so, it looks like nothing more than a slightly modded GM7 with the GM8 Beta sprite editor running on top of it.
Having said that, I’m sure your crack reporters are all over rappybas looking for any other GM8 improvements and new features. Can’t wait for the update.”

Sorry. Although this story was not written by myself and I was not aware of its existence until 20 hours after it had been made clearly I must accept responsibility for the content produced by contributors to the site. The posting privileges of the member concerned have been suspended.
