    Pirating software always has an inherent risk. Aside from that, I don't think GM:S (a product which I personally own) is any different from your average program. If you have an online connection, there is always the chance of the program sending information back to Yoyogames and potentially revealing your IP and that you are using a cracked version. However, there's not much they can really do about it, as GM:S can be used entirely offline, it's not like they can ban you (unless you also have a legitimate YYG account, but that still wouldn't stop you from using the cracked copy.)

    So to put it simply, no, there's nothing specific about GM:S to "get in trouble" with... However, piracy is illegal in most countries and has legal ramifications if you ever give a company reason to pursue you. (E.g. Heavily profiting off of pirated software.) Therefore, I certainly wouldn't recommend selling a game without paying for a legitimate license, but using it for your own evaluation probably won't raise any flags.

    This does not an endorsement. Just an FYI.

    You can always prevent it from making any calls to home with a good firewall or your hosts file. This is piracy 101.

    Those game making programs are some of the most pirated there are (because of the ridiculous price).

    That being said, these companies aren't known to have a very long legal arm. I've never heard of them going after anyone (especially in Brazil).

    But, did you say it's actually installing from Steam's servers?

    If Steam can detect that, I'm sure they would be upset about it.

    You should have taken the chance to get it from the Humble Bundle a few months ago, for a dollar. :P

    Nah. Circumventing Steam with memory patches has been a thing for a decade or so (see Green Luma, Pacsteam, etc.). They just download the content from their CDN but don't give you a proper license to use the software, so it still has to be cracked (or you have to play on cracked servers).

    As somebody who has bought the professional version, I see no reason to get it, not to mention going through the hassle of making a frankenstein monster out of a legitimate and pirated version. I don't think you can even do that.
    I'd rather pirate Studio 2 whenever that comes out.

    Nah, subscription based payment from what I've heard. It's a shame really, with all the other major game engines being free (Unreal Engine, Unity, Source etc.).
