When we started, GameMaker 8.0 had just been released, and we weren't really looking to touch the IDE or windows platform at all, our sights were firmly fixed on getting games onto consoles - something we still really want to push, but has never managed to happen fully for us.
Russell also suddenly got pulled onto GM4Mac, as the guy that was writing it, slowed down to a crawl, and Sandy had been desperate to get it out the door for years now. With Russell now pushing it full-time as well, this was now suddenly a distinct possibility.
We finally made good progress on the PSP with our first game Green Tech by David Galindo was heading into the dreaded Sony submission process. This wasn't something any of us were looking forward to. Then something else happened.... Sandy suddenly wondered if it would be possible to get games onto the iPhone/iPods. The Apple app store had started to take off, and he was wondering if the runner would work okay on these new touch devices. He brought up his iMac got us an iPad, and I set about doing the first port, and inside a month I had the initial version running pretty well.
