Only been here 9 of the 10, but I still remember fondly the day I found Construct Classic on a magazine demo disk for media creation software
Construct Classic was everything I ever wanted after growing up on KnP / TGF / MMF (aside from when CC editor and runtime are crashing )
I am very glad that Scirra are still doing well for themselves and are continuing with producing game development software that isn't cumbersome to use or "needs code" to do anything worthwhile.
Looking back at my original postings and the change in my experience with Construct when I transitioned from beginner/student to independent game developer, I am excited for Scirra's achievements and pained for the journey left ahead at the same time. As a hobbyist, I love every Construct version and recommend them all in different situations.
However, I am still hoping for much better support from hardware/consoles and software (eg: Chromium) for the platforms that C2+ are using. It's almost viable now for any (and is viable for most) 2D game(s) made in C2+ to compete with other Indie native engines on PC, so I am looking forward to the future of the HTML5/WebGL platforms.
