Love Game Maker, and have been looking forward to this. I haven't used it in a while, but it seems like it's about time to get back into it and see how things have fared.

I used Gamemaker way back when it was free. Now that the HTML5 Lang is built in that gives it lots of potential. You probably still need a intermediate understanding of JavaScript to work out the kinks. However if they offer lifetime upgrades I'm willing to put the 100 dollars up for the license cost.
