Game Maker was written by Mark Overmars, a professor of the University of Utrecht, partly as a teaching aid for his students. It is gaining recognition as a useful teaching tool in primary and secondary schools because of its easy entry and sophisticated scripting language. It is particularly useful for primary students and secondary students as a task which is both challenging and relevant.

It is believed that wikiversity can use such software to create non-standard learning environment.
