We are pleased to announce that anyone who purchases GameMaker: Studio Master Collection will automatically receive new modules as they are released for GameMaker: Studio 1.x, for no additional charge, increasing the value of the Master Collection hugely.

If you have purchased GameMaker: Studio Professional and ALL modules by the end of October* for any existing and new purchases, will get an upgrade at no additional cost to the Master Collection level, allowing everyone to take part in this offer.

The YoYo Team....

* (this will be 1st November 11am GMT, for fact fans)

Just for my own clarification.

I'd purchased Studio before it was divided into seperate tiers, along with the HTML5 and Android modules.

I recently also had these licenses transferred to Steam.

So, I should be able to purchase the iOS module from your website, receive a Steam key for that module, and then both my Steam and non-Steam licenses would be upgraded to GM:Studio Master, entitling me to any future modules for GM:S 1.x?

If you purchase from our Website we will upgrade you to Master Collection (on the day mentioned above) and then you will receive any updates (and the Steam Key to go with them).

We will be working with Valve to implement the same deal on Steam, but that is unconfirmed at this time.

Just to be clear, purchasing the Master Collection through Steam does receive all future updates. It's the piecemeal purchasing by EOM that's not yet confirmed with Steam?

This is sooooo tempting as I just started playing with GM:S 3 days ago!

To be clear if you purchase the Master Collection (through us or Steam) you will receive all the future modules...

The only bit we have to work with Valve on is the piecemeal purchases and classifying those.

That about makes it a done deal. Thanks for the great bargain on this product! I don't think I want to tie it to my Steam account, though. Thanks again!

I love how every time I want to take advantage of a deal from YoYo Games, conveniently I am not able to. Posted Image Not that I am mad or anything.

I have GM Studio with HTML5 and Android modules, I was not interested in purchasing the final IOS module until I had a bestseller.... but I must have it now to complete the collection.

Update....

I just purchased IOS module. So I now have Windows, Mac Os X, HTML5, iOS and Android in my Target dropdown. I think that makes me eligible to be classed as "Master Collection" now?

Same here. I didn't plan on getting the iOS one unless I actually had the equipment..but getting the Windows 8 modules + whatever comes next all for free would be wonderful.

Damn..you...college tuitioooooooooon!

So if I buy the missing modules I complete the master collection, but I can't do this on steam to get the 10% bonus, right?

I'd like to make sure before buying on yoyogames because I really wouldn't mind a little steam deal :)

You can get the 10% off on the YYG website, also if you buy though YYG you will get Steam keys. :)

You will need to purchase both the iOS and Android modules for it to be the Master Collection version and therefore eligible for the free updates.

I bought master collection because everything I needed ended up being $400.00, so I figured... might as well dish another $100.00 to save $100.00 in the long run... I'm glad I did after hearing this announcement. I didn't even know about it, just bought master collection yesterday.

When everything is processed you will just need to do a License Update on Help -> Update License, we will let you know when it is all ready.

Hey it worked!
I just resubmitted my license and BANG, Master Collection.
Happy days! :thumbsup:

EDIT:
How about Steam Russell? Is there a chance that the Steam versions of GM will be able to be upgraded to Master Collection?

The modules will be applied in steam, but there is no "special" license in steam, so it won't display that - but you will get your free modules.
