My name is Alisa - and yes, I'm a chick who makes games!
The first game system I owned was PONG! and then the Atari 2600 (which I still have). Adventure games are probably my favorite genre.
I've worked in the game industry for 20 years, starting out as an animator making sprites for Rocko's Modern Life for the SNES. Since then I have made a bunch of games for a bunch of companies (feel free to check out my website at alisakober.com. But the game industry is hurting like every other industry in today's economy. I got laid off from Day 1 Studios a few years back so I mostly do contract gigs now. So when I don't have a gig, I have been wanting to try to make my own games on the side.
I can design and do art/animation, but I'm no programmer. Seems like Constuct 2 will be perfect for me to start learning how to build games myself.
I looked at Game Maker, Game Salad, and other tools but Construct 2 is the clear winner in my book. Its not only a great tool but the documentation, the tutorials, 3rd party plugins, and the community are second to none. And you support Spriter! I can't wait for that to get further along.
Anyway, glad to be here and I look forward to learning.
