DUNDEE, SCOTLAND - November 12th, 2019 - YoYo Games, maker of world-leading 2D game development engine GameMaker Studio 2, today announced that on Friday November 15th, GameMaker celebrates its 20th Anniversary. In honour of the occasion, YoYo Games is preparing a number of events for new and existing GameMaker creators, including a GameMaker 20th Birthday Game Jam, a special one day anniversary sale, and the announcement of the impending open beta release of Sequences for GameMaker Studio 2, that will offer game creators even more tools to bring their vision to life.

This weekend, running until Thursday 21st November, YoYo Games is hosting the GameMaker 20th Birthday Game Jam. The theme of the Game Jam is the number 20, meaning the challenge could be to create something in 20 hours, or with 20 lines of code, or at a resolution of 20x20px. The GameMaker 20th Birthday Game Jam is open to anyone, whether they are a huge team or a solo creator. The YoYo Games office will even be taking part! GameMaker Studio 2 will also be available for free to use on the game jam over the period of the jam, so anyone can get involved with the Game Jam, regardless of whether or not they already own a licence.
