Question - IDE I have a question before buying Game Maker Studio 2


Hello, im new to game making and was planning to buy the desktop version of studio 2. Im planning to in the future sell a game on steam. Do I need to buy a different module for that or will the desktop option allow me to put my game on there?

You'll actually have Windows, Mac and Linux exports, which you can upload to steam.


This isn't a bad thread to derail, so I'm curious: for those of you who inhabit social circles where people actually use linux, do linux users generally (1) use steam, or, (2) pay for games, period? I thought they tended toward free+free games, which isn't really the focus of most GameMaker devs.
