Yeah, that is a pretty neat little toy. I fooled around with it a few years ago; last time I downloaded it they'd updated it a lot and I was
lost--not that I had done much with it, just a little Mario Bros. type game where you jumped and collected diamonds. I'd forgotten about that; I'll
have to take a look at it again.
Edit to add: If I remember right, the main "feature" you get for your registration fee is the ability to "compile" your game into a standalone
executable. Otherwise, you need to distribute a copy of GameMaker (or some files of it) with your game. I think there's licensing issues as well,
like if you're not registered, you can't sell your games or something.
I'm sure there's other stuff; that's the main thing I paid attention to as far as the registration was concerned when I last checked it out.
