  1. Sigh, more dumb little random side projects that are probably diverting resources from Game Maker Studio. That’s okay. I figure by the time Studio eventually ships, I’ll likely have built up my C/C++ skills to the point where I won’t even care.

    • How is this a dumb little side project? They have someone who isn’t apart of the team that’s working on the actual runner working on porting the IDE to Linux. Assuming they did their engine correctly it’d just be a matter of updating a few files to support KDE/GNOME.
