OFFICIAL GameMaker at 20 (Interview with Mark Overmars)

Super cool to read, and see Mark still getting a kudos for all he's done with GM.

“It was just a hobby project, with no commercial ideas whatsoever. I was really surprised when it started to become so popular.....If I had started with the goal to make something very popular, I would probably have given up at some stage...
Feels like this could be true for some of the more successful games made with GM.

I recently downloaded and played around with old versions of GM again.. GM3 was the earliest I could get working on Win10. It's amazing to see how GM's evolved and become a true professionals tool.. but still amazing to see that even those old versions still feel sooo fun to play around with! Even if just as a hobby.
