I actually downloaded and installed and requested a license ... hey free 50$ :D
I'll check it out. Thanks
Thanks for the heads up. I downloaded GM months back and played with it. I like Construct more but that's not to say that GM doesn't have a use and is a good tool for the right job. I've been wondering though, what does GM compile down to? I presumed it's not HTML 5 since they sell a HTML 5.
The standard version in question exports to windows and mac destop
Edit: Oh, also windows 8 export
Hmm, I'll give it a look. I doubt I'll like it better than C2 though.
Personally, it's no better than Construct 2 though it might be a bit more stable due to being non-HTML5.
Thank you for posting the link. It's always nice to have options!
I have the Ultimate edition of GMS and I still use Construct 2.
With any software, especially game making software, there are pluses and minuses.
The big pluses for C2 for me are:
simplicity of use,
the online tutorials,
the templates and examples built into the software,
the event sheet system makes finding problems much easier,
the people in the forum seem to be eager to help newbies.
C2's team is constantly upgrading and improving the software,
so any limitations that C2 has today, may be resolved tomorrow.
