GameMaker

You can download Gamemaker 8.1 from here:
Windows: http://www.coderdojobelfast.com/Resources/GameMaker-Installer-8.1.exe
Mac: http://www.coderdojobelfast.com/Resources/Game_Maker_Lite.dmg

You do not need to purchase a licence – the free version is more than enough for what we do!
We use version 8.1 which is not totally compatible with the latest Studio version available direct from YoYo Games.
