    Hello everyone,

    I have game maker studio 1.4 that I downloaded for free from steam. I am confused about licencing so just want to ask : am I allowed to publish free/paid games with this steam version of game maker?


    Thanks in advance :D

    Depends on what you mean by free? Did steam do a free sale on GMS1.4? I'm unaware of if it ever did. Or did you happen to have a GMS1.4 steam license lying around and you used that? Publishing a game with GMS1.4 is perfectly fine. I'm just unsure how you got it for free?

    Ah, I thought they'd cut off all sources for getting 1.4 but obviously not.

    Probably for archivistic (is this even a word?) values.
    It kind of would make sense if it was available for download, but can't purchase licenses for it anymore.
    If you have a license and your PC gets ****** and need redownload or you want to try it in trial for some reason, I guess you could do it with this.
