Old Game Maker Games Archive
This is an attempt to archive all Game Maker games from the old official site's Games Showcase page.
Game Maker is not required to run any of the games, I made sure they're all easily playable out of the box.
All the games that come as an installer have been extracted, with the installer still included in the package.
Games made in Game Maker 6 and 6.1 have been patched to run on modern computers. Still, I can only confirm that all the games run fine on Windows 8, I haven't tested them on other machines.
Games marked as "Editable" still contain an executable, but also provide the source file (gmf, gmd or gm6).
If you can provide any of the missing games (the ones with red background), or want a game removed, please contact me at .
The files are also available on Mediafire.
Special thanks to:
- Internet Archive - The Wayback Machine and the software archive helped me find a lot of the games. Some of them were found on archived shareware CDs.
- Game Maker Games - A big archive of Game Maker games, sadly down at the moment.
- Demo News, Caiman.us, FreeGame.cz, IDnes.cz - Plne Hry - Sites with big collections of freeware games, including a lot of rare Game Maker games.
- Pix3l Workshop's Game Maker page - A snapshot of how the official Game Maker site looked around 2002. Most of the links are dead, but some still work.
- GM4 Games CD - This CD was awarded as a prize to the winners of the Game Maker Competition from October/November 2001. Contains a lot of early GM4 games. Thanks to Jonathan Lam for preserving it.
