  1. Over hauled room editor? Predictive programming for GMS 2.0? I cannot wait for 2.0 to use it on elementary OS. Having native Linux support for Game Maker is going to be amazing. Hopefully the rumored subscription tier is reasonable.

    • That’s what I want to know. 2.0 was scheduled to be released last summer/winter. Summer and winter came and went, and now this year’s summer is almost over. Instead of adding feature after feature after feature, maybe actually put all hands on 2.0? Yoyo Games is becoming like Xojo….. A company that also made lost promises. (iOS and 64 bit support announced in 2012, beta and released slated for that year, delayed to 2013, then delayed to 2014, with a beta slated release in the summer. It’s now in Alpha, so it will be delayed again. Now they’re putting Android on the drawing board.)

      I’m getting tired of companies promising releases and then delaying said releases without giving a real reason. I’m fed up with the bullshit.
