Formal statement regarding Construct

This forum is currently in read-only mode.
  • Dear community,

    I mentioned that 0.94 would be released several days ago, at around this time. I will not renege on this, and 0.94 should be released later today. However, we have been in discussions with a large software company (Adobe) and I am pleased to announce we have agreed terms and Construct has been purchased outright for a 6 figure sum.

    Adobe wish to take Construct into the online and Flash market, as a simpler development environment and with the aim of developing a stronger applications and professional market. I will not be on the development team unfortunately, but I hope my mentoring of Construct and the community is enough to see all our aims through.

    I wish you all the best,

    Ashley

  • Oh crap.

    ... Best April fools ever

  • Oh nooooooooooooo curse you Adobe! First Flash and now Construct!!!!

    AAAAARGHHHHHH

    btw. Nice joke XD

  • The skin when you're logged in on the forum isn't changed though

  • Hehe, nice try bud. I usually forget all about April 1st, but I already got fooled by another site, so I was prepared

  • Lol yeah, you almost got me there (you shifty bugger you ).

    Ironically, the only thing going through my mind as I read that was "A six figure sum? Hot damn! Go Ashley!"

    Edit: On a serious note, I had a sinking feeling when I started reading that. Just glad I realised the date halfway through . I'm not the biggest fan of the idea of losing Ashley (Which would've been the real tragedy had this been true).

  • hahahaha

    veri funni.

  • Nice joke!

  • funny!

    but .94 is still today yeh?

  • Ah beavers..I ALWAYS fall for these every year!

    u smackaroo....

  • Awww man, I hope that this IS an April Fools joke and not a big coincidence! I was all excited about the fact that this is was open source and now we have a dastardly post with overtones of April Fools, but it was posted after 12pm so maybe it's real? BAAAAW D:

    Oh well, I going to make myself as useful as possible in the meantime and try to figure this thing out... looks a lot like MMF2 so it should be fun to play with!

  • it was posted midday today April 1st.

    and theres no news of it on adobes' site.

    im 99.9% sure its a joke.

    You're really that sure, huh? I dunno...

  • if it truly wasn't a joke then an official post or statement from adobe needs to be produced. unless theyre in on it too xD.

    besides. april first isn't exactly the best day to post such information of this magnitude on without it being interpreted as a joke.
