GameMaker: Player is a free service that gives GameMaker: Studio users a place to share their games with not only other GameMaker users but also the rest of the world.
The GameMaker: Player application is available to download free of charge from www.yoyogames.com for Windows, and will soon be available for Mac and Linux systems.
All GameMaker: Studio users will be able make their games available on the Windows version of the Player* but in order to make it available to the others they will have to have the specific export module for that platform.
Developers will be able to share pre-release content with others so that they can show individuals what they are working on or even run closed beta tests of upcoming projects.
