GameMaker Studio Released, divide between community and YoYoGames created

GameMaker Studios┬áHas officially been released. It’s priced at $100, but it costs extra for each exporter. The current available exporters are an iOS exporter(+$200), a HTML exporter (+$100), and an Android exporter(+$200). A very wise business decision. GameMaker HTML is being replaced by GameMaker Studios + HTML exporter. The price is still the same. Besides the ability to export to different platforms this version of GameMaker includes better support to collaborate on a game as a team, putting GameMaker as a tool that could be used by small to medium game making teams. This is certainly a good step for GameMaker, but unfortunately it creates a divide for the community. From now on there are going to be features that the normal user can’t afford to buy.
