    Could someone please list what the “other features” in the paid tier are. I spent some time trying to find out that info from their site, but as far as I can tell you have to sign up for an account first(?) Why the secrecy?

    I apologize if the info is there in plain sight and I’m just missing it.

      Thanks for pointing this out. That’s an oversight on our part. Here is a comparison of the features you get with a free account vs. a premium account.

    Oy, logging in to the make blog is tough. I’m the guy in the video so I can answer the question. In any case, to answer the features list question, we’re not trying to keep any secrets. Any time you do anything that requires premium membership you’ll see the entire list of features that you get when you’re a premium member. For example, if you go into the workshop on and try to upload music for your game you’ll see the entire list of things that being a member gets you.

    Hope that helps,
