YoYo Games has partnered with Microsoft to give its GameMaker Studio 2 developers access to the Xbox Live Creators Program.
That means devs using the popular 2D game engine can now quickly publish their games to Xbox One and Windows using the Universal Windows Platform (UWP)."
"The Xbox Live Creators program makes it easy for independent developers to ship their games on Xbox One using the social features of Xbox Live,"explained Chris Charla, Director of ID@Xbox at Microsoft.
"Just create a Dev Center account, build a Live-enabled UWP game with GameMaker UWP, and you're ready to launch on the Xbox One.
YoYo also recently brought the widely-used toolkit to Mac OS, meaning Apple fanatics can finally get in on the game dev action.
