We are very excited that our recent news on what GM Standard 8.1 has been positively received! We are very close now to to being able to release this and wanted to make sure you have what you need to upgrade.
If you already have purchased Game Maker 8 Pro, then you can upgrade for FREE. What you need is your “Purchase Reference”. If you don’t have your Purchase Reference, then...follow this link and enter the email address you used to register Game Maker- http://www.softwrap.com/page.aspx?section_id=9 it should automatically send you what you need. If you no longer use that address or the link sends you an email without any details, then email firstname.lastname@example.org and they will deal with this within 24 hours (weekdays only).
If you have Game Maker 7 or earlier, you do not qualify for a free upgrade BUT you can still get the new version for only $25 if you get it BEFORE 1st June 2011!
We will announce here when Game Maker Standard 8.1 becomes available and the processes involved to make this a nice and easy, smooth transition.

Please note: The Game Store will be closed for a number of hours on Friday 1st April (no really) from 2.30pm GMT onwards, this is to allow us to test a few things out. The Store will resume as normal the next day.
