Update 22:47 BST: We are now back online!!
First of all we'd like to apologize for the massive number of issues faced by all of our users over the last few days. As you may know, the enormous pressure from the Humble Weekly Bundle exposed a flaw in our database which rendered all access to accounts and licensing unusable.
While we've been applying various fixes and working as hard as we can to alleviate all of these issues we're now at a point where we need to take all of our services offline in order to move the database to a new server.
We expect process may take up to 24 hours at most.
During this time:
the website at yoyogames.com will be offline. the updater within GameMaker: Studio will not function. no license keys will be redeemable or update-able. The Marketplace and Player will also be offline The GMC forums will remain online.
for new users who are looking to try GameMaker:Studio for the first time I would invite them to try the free version of the software available on steam during the downtime. This free version has a great deal of features and the majority of features unique to professional are targeted at long time users of the software and are less useful to beginners. The majority of the GMZ files in the source code provided with the bundle will also import correctly into this version of GameMaker.
