GMS + YYG Joint Venture

On the official Yo Yo Games [g]log today, Michel announced a new partnership between Games Showcase and Yo Yo Games. The Games Showcase website will be merged into the (soon to be released) public beta of making it the ultimate destination for all users to share and play the games Game Maker users create.

Once the new site is released, all the content that is currently on the Games Showcase website (game submissions, including ratings, reviews, etc.) will be added to the new database. Thomas, the current over a Games Showcase will be taking a position over at the YoYo Games website to test and accept games as well as organize a reviewer’s team.

Thomas encourages users to join with them and move to the new YoYo Games website, he believes it is a great step forward for both Game Maker and the future community.
