Construct is AWESOME.

  • Well i have to say ive been working with construct for about 2 weeks now and am thrilled with it, since im an artist and have no clue about programming, ive tried other solutions but the ease of use and functionality gets 2 thumbs up from me, btw ill make my game announcement soon... just gotta love how speedy and user friendly it is.

  • Oh, by the way: I had the idea of hosting a Construct game making competition. As soon as I'm done with my current project, that is. A competition with prizes and everything. The theme would be somewhat anarchic and irreverent (I have something very specific in mind) - the result would hopefully be attention for Construct and some good games.

    What do you think?

  • I'm all for it. Just give everybody enough notice when it will start and end and make sure to advertise it. Also, we could always have the top winner have to submit the .cap or some other way to show they used Construct. It would also be beneficial for people to learn the great stuff Construct can do.

    It's a great idea.. we need more competitions!

  • Sounds like fun

  • can always have showcase games made in construct etc ^^

  • Try Construct 3

    Good. I'll definitely give everyone enough time, and I'm pretty certain I can get the word out.

    And having people submit their .cap files for verification is a really good idea.

    I'll get on it as soon as I'm done with my current project.

  • Well, I guess one can never praise enough that which deserves to be praised, so here it comes:

    After using Construct a couple of weeks now, I?ve come to the conclusion that construct is AWESOME

    So, thanks a lot to the devs, and as soon as my unemployment ends, I?ll be sure to send some donations your way. High quality, niched, free software like this should really be encouraged in every way it can be done

  • The awesome thing about Construct is that it lets you spend all your time thinking about the creative side of game making, to explore and experiment rather than worry about the technical junk.

    It becomes a questions of "what", not "how". Which is soooo refreshing!

    Big thanks and praise for creating this powerful tool!

  • I just presented Construct to an University crowd at a talk I gave and they went, and I'll use a scientific term here, completely Nutz.

    So yeah. Awesome.

  • The interesting thing is that I've never seen a tool that's better for gameplay prototyping than Construct - Usually, testing out gameplay and making sure the game balance works is a HUGE pain in the ass and takes up a lot of time. Construct is fucking awesome that way and it displays the game logic in really simple, easy to understand way. It's just the perfect tool for prototyping and balance and definitely the best tool I've seen to create 2d games.

  • Yes 100% outdoes anything I've come across. I can't help telling everyone I talk to about it and its amazing that the dev dont charge big bucks for it already.

    Sometimes I cant get to sleep at night because I just lay in bed with thoughts of what I can do with construct. My nephew is only 8 and I got him to download a copy and I sort of explained the basics to him and in about a month he was making some games that are probably sellable.

    He's not the brightest in his class but construct has really got him headed in a good direction. Also I used construct to quickly create a little app that satisfied a need my friend had at his job...something he couldnt find anywhere else.

    He was constantly having to search through different folders for form-letters and stock-replies. He asked me if my construct program could do anything to help. I made a small app that gave him instant access to all his text files and with a click put the text he needed onto the clipboard...it took me part of a weekend to whip out a pretty smooth program and when I gave it to him on monday after talking about his need on friday night he couldnt believe that I made it...he kept saying "no really where did you download this from?"

    It works so well that he keeps it open all the time. Construct really is amazing. The developers deserve some kind of an award !!!

    (will send money if you tell me how to get the window to stay on top of all other windows and I turn this program commercial...it is pretty useful.)

    I just want to say thank you to the developers. AMAZING!
