I did a quick search on the forums before posting. Didn't see anything that specifically addressed my question.
I've been a Scirra fan for about a year now, and looking for my first opportunity to leverage Construct 2 for an actual project. Turns out it's harder to design good games than I originally thought, so I'm thinking of leveraging some work I've already done in the past to get me started.
The thing is, this work I have completed is not the kind of game others are using Construct 2 to make. In fact, it's not really a game, it's a simulation of a casino game. I'm not even looking for flashy graphics or animations (although adding them later could be neat), I just need input boxes and formatted output and a whole bunch of calculations to happen on the back end.
Currently, the simulation is written in VBA (Excel is the front end), and I would like to convert it to HTML5 so it is in a universal format that I can either publish or convert to mobile app or desktop app. Also, I want to roll up my sleeves and get a project under my belt with Construct 2.
Am I on the right track by using Construct 2 to accomplish this, or am I trying to fit a square peg in a round hole? Also, I'm a pretty noob programmer at the moment (hence the VBA), so I like the idea of using Contruct 2 for this.
Thanks for any input you can offer!
