GB Studio 1.2.0 Released!


It's been a while since a GB Studio update but here it is, version 1.2.0, with lots of new features to try out!

This version was a huge rewrite of a lot of things to make large projects work better, improve the UI (lots more previews everywhere) and  make things easier for people to contribute new script events (and there's a lot new this time!)

I hope no one minds but I enabled pay what you want this time, I've got lots of big plans for GB Studio and any support I can get will help those goals become realised. Full color support and extra genres (I'm looking at platforming and shoot-em up for now) are the big things I want to work on next time!

Here's the list of new features in 1.2.0 though, that's quite a lot!!

Lots of new features are exciting for the future. Also I'm interested in Turkish localization so I followed you on twitter.

The Windows builds are not on GitHub for this version. Why is that, did you just forget to upload them?

Ah, just checked, they'd failed to upload! Ooops! Added them now. Thanks for letting me know.

Just wanted to make sure! :)
