i want to say ... im using c2 as long as 2 years almost now so .. there are multiple ways to make money with the engine itself, either crete a game as a freelancer and take jobs from guru /elance/freelancer, and anyother platforms like this or find your platform you may like , those are just a few to help u understand better the market out there, how ever if u choose to go solo developing way, im telling you now, its gonna be a long run, and dont quit you day time job if u have one ... i did... dident went well... well ... i guess im a lucky case, got an investor from USA a few game studious that i can work with sometimes, and definetly the scirra forums is always helping finding more jobs, as long as money? i did around 3500 USD by now, with the free version only i know i should upgrade but i cant yet.... just because my life is a mess... and continously stress... so definetly not quit your job, youl have less time to do games yes, but you will have more peace of mind and stability ... as long as making money for yourself ... not gonna work in the way you imagine.... you have to do surtain steps in order to get a 10$ game revenue a day from ads and sales from IAP ... those are :
1 ) do a game any game u want can be simple advance doesnt matter but be sure u do have good graphics and gameplay in it .
2) research some ways on how you will market your game store link ... since no gamestore will advertise for you .... you need to invest money in advertising or have a website that brings u daily traffic and young people that can pay (the rate of people payng for stuff will be 1% if u have 100 people traffic 1 will buy if u have 1mil people traffic eh... then u have a great sale )
3) using ads or IAP its a though choice since admob and chartboost where not existent in Construct 2till latest version . So it was a pain to have a greate game engine and a bundle of games but without a posibility to generate income. now i guess its ok , admob u have the plugin in c2 u can do iap (in app purchases - selling items inside the game ex:" crystals, upgrades, potions, etc " the good part is that u choose the price set it and wait , the downside of it, you need a merchant account on paypal, or amazon or anyother platform for that u need a bank account (visa card only dont try with mastercard wont work unless u use some options like skrill , or other platforms like it that dont require bank accounts )
4) publish it and maybe u get lucky i know for a fact if u have enough games, onl;y with ads in them u can do around 50$ a day but must be good games, and consistent, if u dont want to have that pain on you back, then just create games, and sell the template on scirra store or on opera store i guess it is they let u sell ur game and license for android ios games, as FGL but not sure how big it is .. another way to make games and make money get involved seriously in FGL community , and i mean serious not eh il check it, u need determination, knowledge and alot of patience, if u have those then u ok to go . and ul be making a living from ur games.
a small indie game developer this days can do from 0-1000$ a month if he works well, a medium one up to 10,000 and the pros we dont talk about them cause they do millions
and as Tylermon say's your game is as good as your graphics are so u seriously need an artist, or prepare some cash for Royalty 2d graphics unless u have skills in that category, i have, but i mostly buy my graphics, or clone it from google and redo it in photoshop , so ... yes my answer to your question , i did around 3500 $ by now in 2 years 1 year will be learning c2 front to bottom, another year spent time doodling around and researching on markets and communitys, and lately i just started making cash out of freelancer works, and custom projects, i dont have a website yet, i did but closed it, maintanance was to big (around 200$ a month with a VPN ) so definetly possible money making machine is The Brilliant Engine construct2 created by Our dear C2 Working cute little monekyz
P.S il release a new game this days i was working on last night half done hope youl check it later after i finish it .... damn i forgot need to buy the merchant account... ok see you later
