GameMaker is Back on Mac!


We use and love GameMaker for our Video Game Design Camp. And were thrilled to see that with GameMaker Studio 2.1 from YoYoGames comes a major milestone, a fully dedicated Mac version!

One GameMaker License Gets You Mac and Windows

This has long been a desire of both YoYo Games (the developer) and the community for a while. As a result, we are excited to welcome this version into the GameMaker family. The great news for both Windows and Mac users is that it is all part of the same license. All you have to do is buy any module, and it will work on Windows and Mac. Consequently, if you are a Mac user who has been “stuck on Windows” or using a VM, there is no better time to swap to the Mac-native IDE!

The resource tree is now fully customizable.

That’s not all…

YoYoGames didn’t stop there with the new features. Oh no – they’ve now included some long-awaited and anticipated features such as:

  • An integrated debugger
  • Resource tree enhancements
  • “Recent Windows” window
  • Code-folding support

For more information about all these exciting new features, please head over to GameMaker’s blog. Or, if you are really into the details, you can check out the release notes.
