Game Maker 0.8 new features (January 6, 2023)

What is Game Maker?

Game Maker is a drag and drop game design program with plug and play logic designed for creating Experiences, or games, for The Sandbox Game.
Experiences can be:
  • Shared for free in the community Gallery, including Game Jam contest submissions. You can also make a free Experience Page even if you don't own LAND.
  • Launched for play in the metaverse Game Client and monetized if you own virtual LAND using Experience Publishing tools.
Experience monetisation is a developing feature.
Game Maker is free to use, whether your project is personal, educational, or commercial. It consists of a creative space to build Experiences, templates to learn logic or kickstart your creative projects faster, and a gallery to explore community creations, which includes competitive entries from Game Jams.
With this no-code software, you can use blocks and assets created in VoxEdit to populate your world, create quests to guide players, and create logic for custom interactive play that is as simple or as complex as you like.
Game Maker 0.8 has introduced logic options that are synced for all players, streaming for custom video and audio, and exciting new options for lighting, weather, and visual effects.
Whether you're a beginner or you have skills using similar software, we have resources to get you started.
