..............way to get free bug testing from end users and save yoyo games some money, and at the same time give us all the opportunity to try out the new fun features in GMS, and hopefully build even more demand for GMS.
Sounds like a win win for people on both sides of the spectrum!
inb4 announcement that it'll cost $400 on release, though.
If your so concerned about about YYGs raising their prices, perhaps instead of posting silly inb4 announcement posts, consider buyb4 announcement.
I'm not at all concerned about rising prices at all. I've bought many licenses for the software over the years, and it's a worthwhile investment, I've just been getting more and more disconcerted by the fact that whenever there's an announced new feature that, let's face it, should be bundled with the software as default (compiler?), it gets bundled into the "We want to be Unity," module system and gets a ridiculously inflated price.
That's not to say everyone at YoYo don't deserve to be paid for the great work they've done, they deserve to be paid for sure, but they're shooting themselves in the foot, I feel, when they charge (let's be honest here) hobbyists and amatuers upwards of $800 for the full kit and expect to have everyone clamouring to pay up at the moment of release.
Additionally, I admit, my initial post was rather stupid, and very off topic, so I definitely deserve a bottom smacking for that, but I'm sure you can understand why I want to be excited as hell for 1.3, but am filled instead with dread at being greeted with a, "hey, we really appreciate all the feedback and beta testing you guys have done with us, we really hope it whetted your appetite for 1.3, and btw, the debugger and the Vector imports are going to be bundled as modules, available now for $100 a piece!" style announcement.
With that out the way, playing about the the Early Access build, I love the ability to import vectors they're brilliant and something that I've wanted for so long, but the debugger seems, at the minute, a little buggy, but that's to be expected, eh?
