FOR THE LOVE OF GOD please give up on Construct and get something like Game Maker

    Construct's never gonna have all the features you wanna use in a game engine. Construct is never gonna be available to use on the switch. And even if it was, there's literally 0% guarantee it'll be on what ever next platform Nintendo will make. AND EVEN THEN, 3rd party console porters will literally charge you more than $20k just to port your game to a single platform, when a single console license for GMS is $700 yearly, and $1200 for the console bundle.

    Yes, it's Game Maker is harder to learn than Construct. It comes off as more daunting. But if you put the time in learning it, you'll never go back to engines like Construct, and you'll eventually reap the benefits of putting the effort into learning Game Maker. And while Construct is /easy/, it's not gonna have all the features that you, as a developer, need to utilize for your games.

    Y'all deserve to make the games you wanna make, y'all deserve to port it to what ever platform you desire without other people/3rd party companies gouging your finances. GAME MAKER WILL LITERALLY LET YOU MAKE ****** 2D SKYRIM, HOW IS THAT NOT WORTH LEARNING THAT TYPE OF SKILL

    Trust me, take the time to learn it, and it'll be as smooth as a knife through butter. Don't let these staff tell you off for wanting your game to be a certain way, give up on your construct license and focus on Game Maker. Your future will be much bigger and brighter for it. Your games WILL be successful.

    it is LITERALLY worth the investment. Game Maker is way less ass and less glitchy, and is gonna have what ever feature you need. And even if it didn't. I guarantee you that SOMEBODY out there made an extension or two that'll help you achieve what you need in your game.

    Dont waste your time on this crap.

    Thats alot of shade for not showing us how well you've done with it.

    Lmao it ain't about how well I've done with it homie. As a developer, I make Yandere Dev look like Gabe Newell in comparison lmao

    All I did was give constructive criticism on that people need to take the time to learn Game Maker over a crappy engine that's never gonna do completely what you want.

    And plus the downsides pale in comparison to the upsides of Game Maker, idk why you're mad

    I think somebody's having Game Maker buyers remorse, and a bad case of cabin fever.

    I hear that next Mario Kart will be made with Game Maker

    As much as I bug Scirra to make prefabs. I don't find anything I can't do with Construct 3 within the scope of what they claim the engine does. Make 2D games.

    Plugins fill in most of the gaps. Chowdren is a way to get any game worth porting ported to switch.

    For the amount of convenience the engine provides - well worth the slight hassles.

    Aside from console porting, what Game Maker can do that C3 can't?

    Chowdren literally costs more than $20k to do any kind of port. Game Maker Studio would literally cost you less than a 10th of the cost, and that includes the actual cost for the Switch developer kit

    Game Maker, while daunting at first, once you know how to use it it's easy as hell to use. I'm not even good at coding and already I feel really familiar with the program enough to know that what ever issue I come across, I can deal with just fine.

    Also convenience means absolutely nothing in the greater scheme of things. Because while it may be easier to learn Construct, once you actually learn something the likes of Game Maker, you realize just how limiting programs like construct actually are.

    But what ever, take constructive criticism and move on.

    Dude, what you are saying makes no sense. If you are going to invest time into learning something new, than that should be Unity, not Game Maker.

    And your insults need a lot of work. Maybe Game Maker has an insult maker plugin you can try?

    Please see the forum & community guidelines. While we don't mind discussion of competitors, we draw the line at directly telling people to go and use other software, so thread closed. Further there is directly abusive and offensive language in this thread (some of which I deleted), on top of a bad faith attitude, so a ban has been issued.

    I'd add we're a tiny company with very few staff compared to most of our competitors, with limited resources and limited options for adding console support. Yelling at us isn't going to help anything.
