What is it?LateralGM is a cross-platform, third-party, open source alternative IDE for Game Maker. That mouthful basically just means that we provide another program to edit your Game Maker files in, in case GM itself doesn't meet your needs. In a nutshell, we provide a game development environment that works on any OS, is feature-rich, small, and best of all, so free that you could even modify it and redistribute it if you wanted. And we encourage you to do so!
Help NeededAt this time we're quite short on hands, so if you know Java, please drop me a line, and I'll show you the ropes. No need to apply, as mentioned above. You can get the source code and modify it yourself without ever interacting with us, but it would help to learn your way around and get SVN access.
Bottom-up DesignWe know that by building software from the ground up, we can keep it small, and functioning exactly as we intend.
Quality: building the foundations first, then the dream.
