GameMaker: Studio was among the first non-gaming software to be released on Steam three months ago - a tool for game development across all levels of ability, for ages 0-99. Or at least, from entry-level to wizened professional.
It arrived with the ability to upload your completed game onto the GameMaker portion of the Steam Workshop for others to play and critique, with the eventual goal of developers getting their game into the Steam store. To show the seriousness of their intent, they’re offering a $1000 bounty to the top rated game on the workshop.
DRM is the upcoming latest from Rob ‘Retro Remakes’ Fearon, an arena shooter in the grand old tradition of Eugene ‘Defender’ Jarvis and Jeff ‘Space Giraffe’ Minter - in other words, the sort of thing you’ll want to play if you’ve ever shivered in delight at the touch of primary-coloured lasers against a black, vacuumous background. And the DRM thing is more than just a cheeky raspberry blown in the direction of PC publishers.
