Hiya. I've been scouring the forums and blog posts the last few days and C2 looks very enticing, in terms of what it offers, its price point, and the developers' ethos.
C2 doesn't have much in the way of tutorials or documentation at the moment. This is particularly a revelant issue for me, a complete beginner to game development.
Game Maker is a tool that has plenty of documentation and tutorials and it's touted as a great place to start for the aspiring game designer. My question is this: If I learn how to work in Game Maker, will this put me in a better position to get to grips with C2 later on? That is to say: are any skills transferable between one app and the other?
Please don't read this as an either/or post for one or the other app: I intend to buy licenses for both; GM so I can export to exe, learn the basics of programming with GML and so on; but at the same time I have a keen eye on future developments, namely html5, and for that I think C2 is the app for me. It would be fantastic if my efforts in one could stand me in good stead for moving over to the other at a later date.
