Well GameMaker has some really hit titles going for it right now, I'm thinking of Spelunky specifically.

Now if you dive a bit into how that game was made it actually looks like Derek Yu got a lot of different resources together (the engine was already coded by someone else is the biggest example), drew the graphics and put it all together into an amazing fun game that really took off. How many people tried out GameMaker after playing Spelunky? I'm guessing a whole lot.

Why can't we do something similar here? How many of you can code your asses off but can't draw? How many of you can compose music but still use the default platform movement for your stuff?

Get 5 or 6 really talented people together to come up with the next MMF2 "mega game", watch it take off and the interested people should come back to Clickteam / TDC. That's probably the best way for Clickteam to get more interested people showing up and buying their products.

In theory of course, I'm sure it won't be easy.

I really do think that CT's website reflects MMF very well..... both are hopelessly outdated. We got flash this year, while it has been the standard for numerous years already. MMF still lacks true isometrics, while everyone else had it for 10 years. 3D? You've got to go through a lot of hoops to get it done, while everyone else had it for years. Compression..... way behind everyone else, so you end of with way too large games. Should I continue?

The website reflects MMF perfectly well, it's an application from the past, always lagging a few years behind the rest, getting everything years too late.

I find that a little extreme. Flash has not been the only standard for games, it is not that hard to code iso stuff in MMF, 3D is coming and most people here won't use it, I never ended up with large games.
