Download GameSalad from the following links:

Mac <http://releases.gamesalad.com/creator/1.25.73/GameSalad-Creator-1.25.73.dmg>

Windows <http://gs.installers.s3.amazonaws.com/GotGameSalad-1.25.6255.24805.exe>

Note:

GameSalad Creator uses standard http / https ports depending on the various stage of launching and login. The launcher connects to urls rooted at http://s3.amazonaws.com/gs.deploy/ and http://deploy.gamesalad.com/.  The former is used to download versioning data while the latter is redirected to our CDN for larger downloaded files.

The login process connects to urls rooted at https://auth.gamesalad.com.

Once logged in, the app can be run in offline mode for up to  7 days.  However, at that time, it will attempt to revalidate your account status.  We recommend that you allow the app to access http://s3.amazonaws.com/gs.deploy/  and https://auth.gamesalad.com for uninterrupted service.
