Learn About GameMaker’s Future and How We Fit in At Opera (Q&A)

Following our big news, we want to take the time to assure our developers of the long road ahead for GameMaker and let you know some of our plans. We also want to host a Q&A featuring YoYo Games and Opera - to introduce Opera and let our community ask the burning questions.

GAMEMAKER

We have a lot in store for the future of GameMaker. We are not ready to share everything yet but as we focus on version 2.3.2, the top priority is further support for all the features added in 2.3, Curve Library and 9 Slice functionality and ensuring our platform exports are all up to date. A beta release of 2.3.2 is coming very soon! We’ve updated our Roadmap with some teases of upcoming features and versions beyond 2.3.2 and some big platform support updates.

Opera is investing in YoYo Games in order to accelerate the development of GMS and increase our support for new beginner users, as well as our professional developers using GameMaker. We are currently working on new onboarding and up-to-date features tutorial videos. We also plan to update our existing tutorials and Learn page to make sure everything works well with version 2.3. We have a brand-new set of education coursework coming soon. We are also committed to supporting our professional developers with platform updates, console support and plans to expand our enterprise support.
