Is Construct 2 ok for story driven games?

  • when I look around it seems that everybody is doing the same thing a small mini game for on your phone, that is kind of empty ( I only looked into the arcade tough...) yes I'm new c: but I learn fast Just wondering if there are example platformer games with a little bit of a story. like, when you walk pas this guy speech bubbles happen and clues. typical stuff nothing to deep but not just things like, objective: go from A to B, don't die. win. Even if that is not really a thing that happens, another question, can you make the game be a pop up window? every time I preview my small test game it goes full screen on the browser, id like it to stay the original size and not re-size it a pop up window would probably be good for that.

  • The limits of what you can achieve with Construct 2 are up to you. What you describe is perfectly possible, maybe you will be the first around here to make a strongly story driven platformer. Go on, do it, and when you're done, tell us about it, I personally would be happy to play your game.

    "can you make the game be a pop up window?"

    This is not something you do in construct 2, you need to use the javascript function "open" or something similar.

    Construct 2 exports the game as an HTML5 web page, you can do to your game anything that can be done to a normal website using php, asp.net, html, javascript and css. Of course you need to know a little bit about web development, there are plenty of tutorials for that, just google it.

    You should check out this Steam Greenlight Collection of Construct 2 Games - lot's of people are making different types of complex games, including platformers.

    A lot of these games have been Greenlit and many have been released which is an exciting prospect for any indie developer looking to use Construct 2.

  • Construct 2 only depend on how you program it or depend on your know how of designing game or any software. Therefore C2 has no limits far as I can see
