PS4/PS Vita/Switch Release: Resurgent and other GameMaker games
Following his release of GameMakerBuilder for Vita, PS4, and Switch, Developer Markus95 has published ports of multiple GameMaker games for these consoles.
What is GameMaker/GameMaker*Builder for PS Vita/PS4/Switch
GameMaker is a popular Game engine designed for multiple platforms, with the vast majority of the games designed for PC. Some of the most popular games made with GameMaker include Undertale, Hotline Miami, Shovel Knight, and Hyperlight drifter.
GameMakerBuilder lets you recompile and install GameMaker PC games, to run on your PS Vita, PS4, or Nintendo Switch (there are 3 independent tools, one for each console).
The author notes that some GameMaker PC games will not work with this (black screen). This is not related to the tool itself, but to the way some of the games work, and possibly some of the APIs they use.
In some cases, it is also necessary to add console controls to some games: in some cases the game will run, but you won’t be able to input anything, without changing the source code of the game. Of course, for open source games using GameMaker, this is a possibility, and we could see lots of ports coming in the months to come, but for proprietary games this might not be a possibility.
