gmShare.com

Stu Bedore from mygmgame.com (earlier gmb review) has launched a second similar service at gmshare.com. At a quick glance gmshare appears almost identical to mygmgame, however Stu says the sites are different “Mygmgame.com is more of a all-around file host. I wanted something dedicated to GM more.” Gmshare appears to be more of a community games host, think YoYoGames and GameMakerGames.com, than mygmgame which is a webhost targeted at GameMaker users.


Sell Your GM Games

Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear. Bad website. Really, the implementation is shockingly bad – and the fact that the entire process is 0% automated only adds to the mockery. The site “of course will get 30% of your sales for hosting and selling your games“. Of course. “If the game is incomplete or is sloppily done it may get rejected as we try to keep a standard for our site” – submit your made-in-two-minutes Read more…


Game Maker Website membership numbers

If, like me, you like statistics then good. Here is some information about the number of user registrations at various GameMaker related websites. Most figures are approximations. English GameMaker Websites YoYo Games – 87,000 Game Maker Community – 60,500 GameMakerGames – 1,600 64Digits – 4,300 – It has been so long since the site has been up this figure is probably wrong. Just like the site. MyGmGame – 700 GMTutorials.com – 350 Foreign language GameMaker Read more…


Dubbing Wrecks Movies

This is the English-only GMC I’m talking about. If you can read, write and understand English then you’re okay – if not you’re, to put it delicately, screwed. Unless of course you happen to speak German or Dutch and belong to one of the marvellous unofficial foreign language communities such as the German Game Maker Domain and the Dutch Game Maker Community. I had never really considered this as an issue until I found this Read more…


Need a DLL or Extension?

GMtoolbox claims to offer a database of almost every Game Maker DLL and Extension ever released to the GMC. A good clean design, lots of categories, almost 150 DLLs and to top it off a lovely AJAX search at the top of the page. Another great thing is that site is so simple to use – instead of making pages for each DLL there are simply links to the GMC. There are numerous sites that Read more…

And a nice link to GameMaker Blog as well 🙂


Top Game Maker related websites

I started this as a small personal experiment to track which Game Maker sites were the most popular. Yes, we have Alexa traffic ranks (which many people will tell you are not worth the webspace they are hosted on), but there are also a number of other ranking sites out there. So I compiled data from various traffic ranking sites and threw in data on the number of inbound links tracked by iWebTool and the Read more…


Game Maker Treehouse

Proof that comment links do get clicked, if you ever had any doubts. A comment appeared earlier today, after being held in moderation, from the gamemaker treehouse – another game maker blog. The treehouse offers a promotional bribe in it latest post, and I thought I’d give it a go. I have been considering trying to exchange links with other gamemaker blogs for a while but to be honest I’ve just never got around to Read more…
