Off The Market

If you haven’t registered for Game Maker 6, you’re now too late, as announced by Mark Overmars. Registrations will now be through Yoyo Games, and for version 7 only.

Halfway February 2007 the new version 7.0 of Game Maker will appear. Version 7.0 will use a different registration mechanism than previous versions. Although existing registered users of Game Maker can obtain a new key for free, we decided that it does not make sense to sell registration keys for version 6 anymore.

Also the sales and distribution of Game Maker has been taken over by the new company YoYo Games. They are currently setting up the online payment system which will soon be available through the website http://www.yoyogames.com/upgrade.

As a result of these developments it is currently not possible to register Game Maker. If you want to register, please check again halfway February at the page indicated above. You can then buy Game Maker version 7.0 which is fully compatible with version 6.1.

We apologize for this inconvenience.

  1. Unfortunately this also means users who cannot run GM6 or 7 due to running a lower-end PC will no longer be able to receive a registration key for Game Maker 5.

    So basically if a user with this problem has not registered they only have two options, 1) stick with an unregistered copy of GM 5, or 2) use version 5.0 which does not require registration to use advanced features like external DLLs and multiplayer

  2. “So basically if a user with this problem has not registered they only have two options, 1) stick with an unregistered copy of GM 5, or 2) use version 5.0 which does not require registration to use advanced features like external DLLs and multiplayer”
    Or upgrade

  3. Well there are always the thousands of cracks available on the internet for those who want one. Of course when downloading cracks you run the big risk of downloading a virus.
