If YoYo Games keeps racking in money like this, Game Maker is going to become much more efficient and popular. I can’t wait for the future of Game maker.
the cumulative downloads for Simply Solitaire are getting up towards a million.
I love free things.
Sandy Duncan: Definitely, and the same on iPhone as well.
Hurry up and open it to the public.
The store has been done for 18 months.
Maybe there’s a chance of one of my games being published. Hey I can have my fantasies can’t I. I know your thinking the same thing.
When publishing we try to choose games which we know aren’t pushing the limits of Game Maker to the extreme because we don’t know how far we can take the runner.
I’m glad that domain was taken. YoYo Games is a much better name.
…Ministry Of Games, which is what YoYo would have been called had the domain name been available.
I wonder who Mark originaly planned to sell YoYo Games to.
We then bumped into Mark Overmars shortly after he had agreed to sell Game Maker to somebody else, quite a big company, but he hadn’t signed anything.
Good, that means GM8.1 will be getting a lot more attention.
right now we have no plans to add any more hardware platforms in the short term. The good news though is that it only takes Mike and Russell about a month from start to finish to get a runner that’s not bug free but working in a shippable state.
