Hello there! I am making a game with a friend, and both of us GameMaker Trial account is running out, so i would like to purchase the software.
I would like to know if my friend can use the same account i am using, so we wouldn't have to buy the software two times. Or we both should buy the product?

I didnt saw anywhere that this action is against the rules.

I also saw this on the FAQ:

"How many computers can I install GameMaker Studio 2 on?

You can have GameMaker Studio 2 installed (and be logged in) on 3 concurrent devices."

I am asking to check if i can really do this, so i wouldnt have problens in the future.
Also, i didnt saw anywhere where i can post non-technical support :c Sorry if this is the wrong section.

Thanks for you attention and you all have a great week

It means you can install the software for personal use on 3 different computers that you own/use (ie. desktop and 2 laptops), not that you can share 1 licence between 3 different people.
You and your friend will each need to purchase their own licences.

See Secton 3.6 (i) of the EULA for clarification, which states you can:
(i) install GameMaker for your personal use on up to three devices in order to develop and publish Publisher Property (e.g. assets and games);
Keep an eye out for sales, they seem to run quite regularly on various sites such as Steam and Humble as well as the YYG website.
