    After month's of research and testing...My game Super Math Man is in the Microsoft game store.
    I used the UWP module with GameMaker Studio 1.4

    Windows 10 Store Game Page (LINK)
    If you don't have Windows 10...you can download the Windows 7 version (HERE)

    (Update): Recently updated and resubmitted the game.
    The game was running well on one of my Windows 10 PCs...but slow on another.
    I noticed the rooms that it was running slow on I had set to speed 40. In rooms it ran well on
    were set at speed 30. Not sure why this was an issue with Windows 10...because I never had
    any issues when running it on Windows 7....and in some cases Windows XP.
    Anyway...Having all the rooms run at the same speed (30) fixed the problem.

    Congratulations on finishing a game. That's an achievement in itself. Now you should be good to go to start releasing more games. Your confidence will grow and so will your release history.

    I'll download and play in a bit. The video looks like it's a fun game.

    Thanks...Right now I'm trying to figure out why the Pacman part of my game is running
    in slow motion when I played the game on my Win 10 laptop.

    Also...If I start the Youtube video off in full screen...the video is fuzzy for the first few seconds.
    Video captured at 1400x900...not sure if that's the problem. Used OBS Studio...also tried built in
    Win 10 DVR...and both gave me the same result.

    Good job, man!

    Didn't push the extra distance for UWP on the XBox?

    My game works best with keyboard and mouse.
    Oh...and let's be real...ain't no way my game can compete against games like HALO.

    Hehe, true. But, you'd be one of the few that could boast they have a game on XBox. :D

    But thinking about it, you are still one of the few that has actually released a game, period. That deserves huge praise in itself.
