About Peter 🌊 Jørgensen

An event for game developers of all ages and abilities

My name is Peter Jørgensen. You might know me as tehwave.

I am the organizer of the gm(48), a quarterly 48 hours #GameMaker game jam, that joins together hundreds of developers for a weekend to develop games from scratch in a intense online competition to make the best game in just 48 hours.

I have started this Patreon page to assist me in growing and organizing the much-loved community event that is the gm(48).

Why your pledge is necessary

The gm(48) is a huge passion project for me, both in what it and the community means to me, but also by the amount of time, that it takes to support and maintain it. I have developed the website by myself to ensure that the developers won't have to think about anything else, but getting their game submitted on time.

As the game jam grows, so does the website's need for more memory, better processing power and larger storage space for the files, banners, icons, etc. The website has crashed before due to the large influx of submissions at the deadline, but I have been making strides at preventing that from happening again, and with your help, I can upgrade the hardware to match my efforts in software.

While I love spending time on arranging and developing the gm(48), it does take time away from friends, family and focusing on my own games. I am lucky, that those around me support me in my efforts, in what way they can, but there has always been costs attached to running a community event of this sort and size. With this, I hope your pledge can help me continue and expand my efforts.

What I have helped make possible

The gm(48) has been running for 7 years to inspire (and pressure) developers to make games. As a result, not only have the developers grown and learnt a great deal from their experience, but many games have also been brought to life.

Here's a few of my favorites:

CRUNGUS 4: End of CRUNGUS

As the last entry in the quadrilogy, Crungus 4 by Tomato Tavern is a crazy fun game, that tearfully ends the storyline of Crungus, which began with first game's entry at the 22nd gm(48).

The Purrfect Opportunity

From a team of insanely skilled people comes The Purrfect Opportunity, a game about petting a cat. ...It's not much, but it is so well-made and clearly a passion of the team, so what's not to love about this game from the 24th gm(48).

PokeyPoke

Armed only with a magical spear, PokeyPoke is a fast, fun challenging platformer from developer Shaun Spalding. Soon after it's debut in the 25th gm(48), the game gained a small speedrun-focused community, and is now in development for commercial release.

What developers think of the gm(48)

"What a great way to put my skills to the test, meet tons of like-minded people, and have fun all at the same time! This was my first time participating in a game jam, and I'm absolutely blown away by the amazing community surrounding this event! I will definitely be doing this again!"
– Neural Pathway

"I participate in GM48 as often as I can! Every time I learn something new and improve! It's always nice to complete a project and receive feedback from the community. 10/10 would recommend."
– Seltzy

"GM48 is an inspiring and inclusive event fit for beginners and veterans alike. There's no better place for GameMaker devs to really come together as a community and show off what they've got."
– MintyPython

The cost of a gm(48)
With this goal reached, we will have covered the costs of the server, the file storage and the domain for each gm(48). The costs may increase over time to keep up with the need for more memory, better processing power and larger storage space.
