YoYoGames announced today that GameMaker Studio has just added support for Windows 8, and will allow publishing of games to the Windows Store. Moreover, this is not a module that you’ll need to pay extra for; it’s included with the Standard editionand up for free.
I’m presently still skeptical about Windows 8, and plan to be staying on 7 as long as possible, hopefully transitioning to Linux/Mac OS X when the time comes, but I’m always happy when YYG provides GameMaker devs with a means to make money.
It’s CRAZY how quickly these developments have been coming from YYG. They’re really in high gear lately.
