Then enjoy Game Maker and forget Construct exists, I guess. Take a look at it again when it's "finished."
That seems harsh. Genesys's point is entirely valid. Why would you pay for something when even the developer doesn't know what will be in the final product? You can't blame someone for not believing it'll do everything everyone wants.
Scirra needs to write up a list of promised features that bound them by contract or else a lot of people aren't going to bother buying until it is finished. If it isn't in writing, there's little to go on besides "faith." Of course, I doubt they'll write up such a contract as there'd be all sorts of legal complications with that. I think the key thing is, if you're going to sell something, it is best to sell it when it exists, not before.
I wonder how this would look to someone who's never used Construct before?
And remember, telling people "Fine, then. Go away." does not help. It is in no way a genuine response.
(I'm just feeling like I have to balance out this discussion a little.)
