We have some exciting news from YoYo Games. Before we go into that, a quick refresher for those who need it. GameMaker Studio 2 is a user-friendly 2D tool for creating games. With the drag and drop system (DnD), users can create games within minutes before they have to write code. Studica is pleased to be able to offer it to our educational customers. We find it ideal in the middle and upper grades because it teaches the students how to program and come in an appealing environment with free teaching materials. For higher education, it offers students the opportunity to develop their creativity in game media without having to spend a lot of time programming. Now we come to the good things – a new beta version and an upcoming Global Game Jam event!
