Construct 2 Free LIMITATION

    But seriously Scirra, I can understand not handing out Families and unlimited Layers in the free version, but putting a limit on the amount of events one can use? That's a bit of a cheap move. Some of us just want to make a cool game or two without paying an insane amount of money for a platform. Thank you for making Construct 2, great program, but I'm kind of miffed about this event thing.

    100 events are more than enough to try out the software, make a basic game or teach the basics of game development, computational thinking in schools. You can't expect them to give you a software that let's you make complex, big games for free. Also, the price on C2 is the best you're going to find in the entire visual-programming market. This is not a cheap move (especially since they are informing you at the store page about the free version's limitations), this is business.

    I kind of feel like an idiot for not knowing about this limitation before. I have just started a huge project, based off of an amazing idea for a game about the story of a guy that gets trapped in space that will take way more than 100 events to complete.

    Any potential user / purchaser - of any item, whether game creations system, car etc - should always ensure to research the item fully to determine the viability for them.

    The fact that you obviously haven't done this can hardly be blamed on Scirra.

    If we charged $0.50 I'm sure some people would still demand that we give them more in the free edition. Some people just want everything for free. We're not going to change this, and this thread is ~5 years old now so closing.
