Same Thinking HERE !!!!!! You read my mind !!! it ain't worth it, I think for sure and you'll see that this engine of Construct has no future at all for us Indie Developers, with Html5/JS basket we won't see a future with our games, it is almost time lose Because we Cannot Export our game to the real Indi Platforms like Nintendo Switch ect, ect,,, We are gonna be stuck on this ilusion dream forever if we don't find an exit soon >>> Why don't you people from Construct creators get along with Chowdren and create and exporter dedicate for the Nintendo Switch with C++ !?!?! We need one asaaaap !!!!
Construct2/3 enginers why don't you people get along with Chowdren to work together as a one team and create an exporter dedicate for Nintendo Switch with C++ using Construct !?!?!?!
Don't you think its a Great Idea !!!! We need that if we really want to see Construct2/3 around some more in a couple of years to come.
Everything its possible in this life.
C'mon put a hand into all this to make Construct great again !!!
I won't be releasing on XBox, no. I don't have any reason to think there's particularly a market for my quirky cartoon platformer on there, and it'd cost me a lot of money (MS say it's "free", but iirc they require you to have insurance and a bunch of other hidden costs). Don' t get me wrong, I'm prepared to invest in a platform where I think I have a chance at recouping my money. I just don't really see the XBox as a key target platform for my game.
I appreciate the response, but that just sort of underlines what I thought: I'm going to have to use another engine going forward.
I think Construct is a great beginners engine and a good way to get into game development. But I don't think it's quite there as an engine for big commercial projects. I think a lot of game developers will hit a point where Construct is starting to hold them back and they can't really grow with it as they'd like. I'd love to be proven wrong though.
You say you can't invest too much energy into chasing a particular platform, and I do understand where you're coming from. But then, you did put all your eggs in the Html5/JS basket. What are you going to do if none of the future consoles support it, either? You guys need to think real hard about this. Is this a platform developers can do real work with, or not?
