GameMaker: Studio now supports publishing to Linux for the first time, with GameMaker: Studio Ubuntu Export.
As the worlds third most popular desktop operating system, Ubuntu reaches 20 million users around the globe, providing a new marketplace for the GameMaker development community to distribute and monetize games.
With GameMaker: Studio Ubuntu Export it couldn't be easier to publish games to the Ubuntu Software Center and take advantage of this opportunity to reach a new audience. Developers can simply export their newly created and pre-existing games as an Ubuntu Software Center-ready application, all from the one code base and all at the touch of a button.
Many of the launch titles will take advantage of popular Steamworks features, such as easy installation, automatic updating, and the ability to save your work to your personal Steam Cloud space so your files may travel with you.
GameMaker Studio, for example, features integration with Steam Workshop that allows GameMaker users to share their work via Steam.
