From YoYoGames Wiki
Game Maker is available in a free version and a registered version. The registered version, which costs €15 (about $25), has more features than the free version. Some of these features include the ability to incorporate DLLs, create multiplayer games, take advantage of Direct3D to create first person shooters and the like, use particles, and utilize advanced drawing functions. The free version, while still having more than enough features for a novice programmer, displays a small Game Maker Logo during the loading of the user's game.
Current Game Maker Version
The current version of Game Maker is GameMaker:Studio, the second release of Game Maker under YoYo Games.
