game controller icon GameMaker Studio & Construct   $1000 Software GiveawayOver the past year I’ve given away a lot of licenses for my favorite game development engine, GameMaker Studio. Today I’m doing it again, and I’m also adding Construct licenses and a bunch of other useful software and tools for game developers worth over $1000 in total.

This is my way of giving back to the community and people who have supported me during my first year in business as a self-employed game developer.

The giveaway is very easy to enter, and it’s open to everyone. Continue reading for prize details and information.

Prizes

1 x GameMaker Studio Professional License (software)
1 x GameMaker Studio HTML5 Module (software)
1 x Construct 2 Business License (software)
1 x Construct 2 Standard License (software)
1 x Dr Oglesby’s Funk Prescription (audio)
1 x Complete Guide to Isometric Pixel Art (digital book)
1 x Sheeky’s Sound Collection (audio)
10 x Making Money With HTML5 (digital book)

Approximate total value: USD $1000

Some prizes will be bundled together for individual winners. Multiple winners will be selected by random draw. Special thanks to the excellent Construct 2 team, Scirra, for their generous contribution to the prize pool.

    I have entered the draw with the mailing list! I don’t have Facebook or twitter, so I’m really exited I can finally enter with an alternative.
    Special thanks to you because you are doing this. I really enjoy your posts! I hope you post more often about GameMaker in the future on your second blog?

    Greets Dyon.

    • Thanks – I wanted to add a way for people who don’t use social media to enter this time. And I will try to post more frequently at Game Maker Blog, though I have some big changes planned first, and once I’ve done that I will certainly ramp up my efforts!
