Construct 3 any news?

    Fortunately it doesn't take much of an imagination to figure out how supply and demand works.

    They have an infinite supply, and a dwindling demand.

    A suggestion is charging for new versions, but that's broken as well, for a myriad of reasons including piracy.

    It's taken years for many companies to figure that out.

    There's a reason why Unity gives their stuff out for free.

    There's a reason why Adobe does Photoshop subscriptions.

    There's a reason why so many game engines fail.

    Scirra can't do what Unity does because it doesn't have the huge/successful user base.

    They can't ask for more money.

    The C2 license only works if the user base is fairly successful.

    Then that hinges on that success bringing in more users that are in turn successful.

    That hasn't happened.

    The current model is not sustainable.

    It only works when you can stay ahead of saturation, and this is a niche market.

    So anyway, asking them to keep the same method is the same as asking them to go out of business and that is a moral issue with me.

    So is subscription, by the looks of things.

    If you want to use C3, you are forced to subscribe to it. There's no way around it.

    The free version?

    "but the free version will be limited"

    Then you pay. Youre not being forced to subscribe. Nobody is forcing you to do anything. I have a Macbook that Apple doesnt support anymore. Apple arent forcing me to go buy a new Macbook.

    Nobodies forcing us to stick around complaining either, but I guess we all feel strongly enough about this and at one point, we were all just hoping to change their minds.

    I'm sorry you don't understand what I meant by "forcing" people to subscribe. I'll rephrase it. You have to subscribe if you want full access to C3. The free version is useless for making a game because it's so limited. The "free" version is a demo.

    Btw, no one cares if you have a really old MacBook. I really don't see what that has to do with anything.

    Please keep it civil - making an analogy doesn't warrant a negative response.

    If that was an overly negative response, I apologize to gameglaux. I may have overstated how much people care about his MacBook.

    No apologies needed here

    It just irks me to see people feeling they are being forced or pressured into paying for something, when they clearly are not. I dont thing ive ever seen a free version match the full version of a product.

    C2 users can either continue using c2, pay for c3 or pay for/use an alternative product. Theres no arm twisting going on. Scirra are the only ones here that stand to lose out from their new business model.

    I understand how you feel, but people are being forced to subscribe to C3 if they want full access to the software, because there are no other pay options being made available by Scirra. Of course, people have the option not to pay at all, and that's the decision we'll all have to make when C3 becomes available.

    It will be today!!! Woo-hoo

    Any word on the time frame the public beta will be released today? I figured since it's about 3pm in London right now that C3 would have already gone live.

    It's up! Only about 1-2 hours later than we anticipated which is pretty good for a product launch!

    Great and thank's.

    But 40 events only ? what can we do. I know this is for tests purposes but it's a bit limited. I remember the free version of C2 was 100.

    Hello, I am trying to open a project of mine but the message appears:

    "Some features will be unavailable" and some errors happens.

    I would like to know what are the functions that can not be used in free edition.

    I can't launch it, even though i have the latest Chrome version and I enabled WebGL
