If you're serious about 2D game development, this is one of the best packages to get along with the exporters (when they're on sale). GameMaker provides a nice development environment for asset management as well as a very robust system for developing all sorts of 2D games. To get anywhere with it you need to use GML (a C-like language) but it isn't challenging to learn, and snapping together bits of code greatly lessens the learning curve. There's also a plethora of information out there about the suite - chances are someone has tried to do whatever it is you want to do before, found a way to do it, and documented it for you.

Downsides? If you try to avoid coding you'll hit a wall fairly quickly (or end up with a mess of a game), so if you're opposed to learning to write code it's not worth the money. Also it has practically no 3D support (nothing worth using at least) but Unity has you covered there.

Game Maker is a great program for people who want to get into making some cool games. There are a lot of people who claim that this program is a waste of money when it's not. A lot of games were created with Game Maker and most of them have won awards, Hotline Miami was one of the many titles created in Game Maker. I've been using this quite a bit in the last week or so, working on a project. I must say that nothing else out there compares to this, I have tried various pieces of software to see which one I like the most and this one stands out from the rest. To give you an example, I used Stencyl for a little while and had a boat load of issues in getting basic movement working, I spent two weeks trying to figure out how Stencyl worked and I just couldn't get it, same goes for Game Salad amd Construct. Game Maker is a different story, I was able to get a working prototype done in about 2 days and hard coded all of the systems inside the game that myself and two other people are making. Drag and drop features are nice, but I don't use them.

I advise that anyone looking to create games should steer clear from the rest of them that compete with Game Maker, this excludes Unity and Unreal Engine which I use as well.

Buy it from YoYo directly, and since the 18th May you'll get the OS X and Ubuntu export modules for free.

Buy it here and... you don't.

Hmm.
