I want to build a game app that has a similar framework to the "Dictator" games by Tigrido, but includes a narrative that would be based on "if loops". I am a civil engineer, so I only know how to code on Matlab.
I was wondering if Construct 2 would be a good software to build such a game app, and if so, could anyone point me in the direction of similar examples or tutorials?
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
I had to look up this Dictator series of games, and I will suggest that C2 can easily make this kind of game. C2 can make basically any game you can think of, as long as it's 2D.
The skill in using C2 to achieve the idea would be moderate, but that's what the community are here for. If you have a simple grasp of C2 and just need suggestions or guidance on the best way to approach something, or maybe more direct help with using more advanced features... just post to the forums here
Dictator looks like more data handling than anything, as in, money in/out and volumes of population, random number generator perhaps... all of this is possible and fairly straight forward to achieve. There are no blanket examples of making this type of game, but I would suggest looking up the various ways you can handle data with C2 (saving complex data structures) using browser/webstorage (for mobile devices) or NWjs (for saving to PC platforms).
Have you tried the free version of C2 yet? If not, give it a whirl and follow the basic tutorials that come with it to help you understand the program. If you already have it, then let us know what you'd like help with specifically
Thank you for your help, much appreciated.
