Question: Is GameMaker owned by Opera?

Answer

GameMaker Studio, which is a popular game development engine known for its ease of use and 2D game development capabilities, was owned by YoYo Games. YoYo Games was acquired by the browser developer Opera in January 2021.

With this acquisition, Opera aimed to expand its reach in the gaming community, integrating GameMaker into its Opera GX browser offering, which is tailored for gamers. The goal was to provide an ecosystem where developers could build, share, and play games directly within the web environment.
