Newsbrief: YoYo Games announced today that the Standard version of its GameMaker: Studio toolset will be free to download through March 2, allowing developers to bypass the free version's various resource restrictions.

The standard version of GameMaker: Studio usually costs $50, but while this offer lasts you should be able to boot up the free version of the toolset and update it to the Standard edition -- which offers unlimited resources -- for free.

YoYo Games is also offering the Professional version of Game Maker at a heavily discounted rate -- if you update to the Standard version, you can then upgrade to Professional for $35. It's a good deal if you've had your eye on either a Standard or Professional version of the GameMaker toolset, which usually cost $50 and $100 respectively.

I wish they consider a reduced price for Professional Edition. Looking for the export feature to multi mobile platforms.

I'm confused by your reply.

Last time they did this free campaign there actually came a reduced price for Pro a few days later. So follow them closely in the days after March 2nd.

edit: Pro is actually discounted during the free campaign!
