Even so, I like the name Game Maker.
This is all about habits. If the game had been called "Easy Game Creation Tool" in the early days of its development, you would've liked that and would disagree in changing it to "Game Maker".
Anyways, I think "Game Maker" is fine as well - but for those who oppose, I would like to hear your suggestions for a new name
I think the Game Maker 8 icon is just fine - though I think the Game Maker 7 icon was a bit more cosy. The GM8 icon looks as something you open "just because I have to" in my opinion. Anyways, when I first started using Game Maker (which was version 7 Lite) 2 years ago - I got a good impression. I was just another teenager who wanted to make games - luckily, I found the easy way. Game Maker was incredibly easy to make games with. After the first 2 weeks, I had already made 2 games. I thought they were the best games ever made back then and they were made with pure D&D.
Aren't that really what Game Maker is all about?
-- Giving people the chance to amuse themselves with their own games, for free.
-- And if you want to get a little more serious with it, you have the opportunity to upgrade to Pro version and get plenty of new features such as 3D.
