YoYo Games has revealed GameMaker: Player, a new service for GameMaker: Studio that gives developers a place to share their games with other gamers, as well as YoYo Games' 1 million monthly visitors.

Any developer currently using the free or paid version of GameMaker: Studio will be able to make their games available for the Windows version of GameMaker: Player, though those looking to release on other platforms will need to purchase addition 'Pro' and 'Export' licenses.
