    I used to work with Gamemaker long ago. Now I got back into it and wanna create and publish games. I was planing to buy GM Studio but I'd really prefer working with Studio 1 insteadt of 2. Is there any chance?

    I might just use the old Game Maker 8.0 version that I still have installed on my old computer.

    I found something here: https://www.g2a.com/gamemaker-studio-professional-key-global-i10000005507001

    According to Wikipedia, the G2A is a safe marketplace.

    If you download the latest version (1.4.9999) from the official website (@Jimac1888 sent you link above) then there will be a launcher with a request to enter the activation key. But if you cannot find the “download” button, which doesn't exist there, you need to click on the green link "Version 1.4.9999" at the very top of the page. But just in case here's a direct link to you: http://store.yoyogames.com/downloads/gm-studio/GMStudio-Installer-1.4.9999.exe

    Just don't cry if yoyo invalidates the key. Not saying it would happen, but besides the occasional sale in the past at humblebundle, I would not expect anything besides yoyo and steam to be the only way they recognize your purchase.

    I hope they wouldn't. But still you can get your money back.

    And if you cared to look anywhere else, you'd also know this is completely unsanctioned activity.
    Resale of GMS keys on G2A violates both the GMS EULA and Humble Bundle's if the key came from there. YoYo has every right to revoke keys sold this way.
    Why should you hope that they wouldn't when they already have?

    The original question has been sufficiently answered multiple times already - and correctly so - in that any unauthorized resale of licenses is not endorsed by YoYo Games. It should therefore not be suggested to acquire licenses in any way apart from the official venues, which, as has also been stated, have been shut down long ago.

    So, to make it perfectly clear:

    No.
