This is what I have to say, about GDK,...

I wanted to say, I do like GDK, ...I  don't know much as to what to say, on how it could be improved, as I could not even come close to doing better,..

The biggest confusion, seemed to be when you a were upgradeing it, always needing to add another ver of the BM,..But since the version 03, which now apparently has the 04, this is getting better..One thing I especially like about GDK, is the ease in loading images and animations,....I have found it is also, easy to add sound themes, useing a midi file. Here is what I did with Garrys Game, which you did, as a Demo, for me,...useing the midi

This "packet" includes, a execuatble, which I have tested not only on my computers, but a couple of the ones at the internet cafe, and those do not even have qb64, or GDK, I was pleased to see, that the execuable ran fine, as a standalone,...

I intend too try useing _snddraw to add some additional effects, within the program, such as a screech, (occasional ) and a "doom" sound when the rabbit is caught, as soon as I understand,  _snddraw better,....I also hope to experiment with _sndplay, and midi or wav,......
All said and done I do hope you continue devlopeing GDK, as I do see it as a very useful, library or addition, that can be used in  qb64.

I am impressed with how the graphics appear useing GDK, I get a noticeable difference,from when they are loaded with _putimage, or _loadimage, use just qb64 commands, I don't know why, or if it is just me,

but they do seem to be more clear and sharp, the colors more "vibrant".

Also the DEMOS in the ver03 package, are great examples,..the range of what can be done with GDK, is practically unlimited,...only with time and more use, will we see a wider range of DEMOS, on the tutorials,...
Because you helped so much on "GarrysGame" I still honestly have not looked at them much,....but I am glad  they are there, because obviously, you won't be able to explain everything over and over to each person that starts useing GDK.
As soon as I can, I will study on the tutorials,..and let you know if they help me, or what is missing,or unclear....
