1. Game Maker Studio used to be 99.99 on sale regularly 50% off.
2. Game Maker removes Game Maker 8.1 without telling:Going as far as removing any links to any versions for it.
Game Maker 8.1 is based on the original creators Versions of this software if you didn't know.
Everything seems pretty normal for a skeptical move, and maybe its forgivable.
3. But they make this anouncement:"We believe that GameMaker: Studio is a far more advanced and better product for all users than GameMaker 8.1 and it is long past time that 8.1 should have been laid to rest. This does come at a good time as any of our 8.1 users wishing to upgrade to GameMaker: Studio can take advantage of the Spring Sale where they can get up to 40% off!"
"True multiplatform development from $149.99 >>>>SALE: $89.99"
For those who cannot see what it is I am pointing out, here is TL;DR
They removed legacy versions of a software they sell that people use and competes with their newer version that has just as many problems and loses some useful functionality and is also more bloated.
They did so without warning and THEN increased the price of their own software (Studio Version) base price to 149.99.... It's been sold at 99.99 for years. So they basically added the price of the old legacy version(sold at 39.99) ONTO the price of the ONLY OPTION THEY MADE LEFT FOR PURCHASE.[/color]
