Game Maker Studio Standard $49 -> Free

Not sure if this belongs here. I've seen interest and offers like this in the past so I'll post it. I have zero affiliation.

The guys that are developing High Moon are using it to develop which is where I heard it from.

I just installed it. It appears at first as you're getting the always free restricted version, but upon installing and launching it, you can select between 3 versions. The always free, then the Studio Standard (normally $50) says free and ask for an email instead of a license key. You can upgrade to pro for $35 from this offer. So it seems legit.

Yes it's legit. There was a similar sale a few months ago, that was when I got the Standard edition

Strange, I check out the official site and the Standard version asks for US$49.99. Why so?

I suggest you read my above comment sir.


Click this link. It'll take you to the deal. The first link on that page brings you to the download. It says download for Studio. Once installed and launched, you have 3 options. One is for the always free studio, one is for the standard (which will show free) and one is for professional. Instead of a license key, you just enter your email.

Edit: After entering your email, they email you the license key to unlock Studio Standard.

Works for Mac to. After you install and get the serial for Windows version use the same serial for the Mac version, seems to be working so far.

I think we can forgive someone sharing a FIFTY DOLLAR deal for putting it in the "wrong" area, given that most of us probably would not have seen it in the "right" one.
