Game Maker 7 Pro Price to Increase

Sandy Duncan announced on the YoYoGames glog today that the price for Game Maker 7 Pro will increase in February due to the ever changing value of currencies.

No specific prices were mentioned in the post, but Duncan did however say that customers in the UK will be the most affected by the price change. Duncan noted that the value of the euro had dropped by almost 50% since the last time YoYo Games had evaluated it, which means that the price of Game Maker could potentially jump to double of what it is right now.

On a side note, Sandy Duncan  noted in the comments of the article that work on Game Maker 8 has not yet started.

  1. By the time GM8 comes out I’m old and crippled.

  2. The new price of Game Maker, in USD, will be $25. Sandy will also be posting a ‘coupon’ on the GMC to bring that price down to $22.

    *Please note that I assume Sandy means USD.

  3. I hope they don’t make you pay for a new key.

  4. “I hope they don’t make you pay for a new key.”
    Yeah, and I’m sure that there’d be a rather large out-rage about it.

    Because, there really is no need to get a new key – from what I remember, you can use the same key for every future version.
    Or maybe you’ll have to pay an extra $5(USD example).


  5. Sandy recommended to buy keys right now before the price increment, so it would’t make sense if existing key owners will have to pay again.

  6. What I mean is, that if you where to get GM8, for example, you’d have to pay the remaining amount – but hopefully not.

  7. Isn’t it the pound that has dropped by almost 50%, not the euro… ?

  8. A friend of my asked for help. As he made a program called Scare X3 he asked me to post this. First of all I have nothing to do with it. I don’t even know what video games are. Please don’t PM me or what ever I will not replay. I repeat I am not involved with this decompiler in any way.

    Scare X3.
    Coming up.

    Scare X3 will not be available for the public. Even if you pay 100000$ you will not get it. The reason is that most of you kids always make illegal copies and publish it for free. There are only a few trusted people that we have offered to buy Scare X3 for a price 250$ and by paying 500$ you can have the source code in VC++6. It still is in Beta but soon it will be out in pro version.

    Functions of Scare X3:
    This tool is not like the existing decompilers. It is a fully working decompiler since it is programmed in VC++ it is super fast and does not get stuck. By testing it on a 20 MB file it took 2 Hours and 38 minutes.

    The following is achieved:
    *EXE files can be downloaded from online instant play even if they are play only
    *GM EXE files can be saved directly to the following formats: gmd-gm6-gmk
    *Wrapped, packed, batched, compiled and shrinked GM Exes can be opened and decompiled.
    *Obfuscatored files can be translated to readable code with 5000 sprites, 1000 objects, 2000 backgrounds, 3000 sounds, 2000 Scripts and 100 rooms.

    The following is in process or is highly likely to be achieved after the release of the new version of gm:
    *GM EXE files can be saved directly to gm8 or what ever the future editable extension of GM will be.
    *EXE and BAT files will be automatically scanned for being made out of GM or not.
    *Decompiled files can be edited by altering code, sound, sprites without the need of GM.
    *Edited files can be test run without the need of GM.
    *Edited files can be saved to stand alone without the need of GM.

  9. So, planing on updating the blog anytime soon?!?!
    Gosh, just get someone to contribute, and they write like, 3 or 4 articles and stop?
