Bringing it up to speed in line for the release of Microsoft's new operating system, Yoyo Games have released a patch allowing GameMaker: Studio to export games directly to the Windows 8 marketplace (where they'll be vetted by Microsoft folk before appearing for sale). The patch will be applied to the Standard, Professional, and Master Collection editions of the software, so those of you who have been dabbling with the free edition won't be able to make use of this update.
If the patch isn't enough to push you into laying down money for one of the GameMaker releases, Yoyo Games and Microsoft are hoping to tempt you with $500. More on that below.
