The Official Introduce Yourself Thread

  • Hey everyone!

    I'm Paul White, I've been designing games on and off for 20 years. I started scripting using Hypercard in grade 4, that being my earliest programming experience. I am a musician, drum instructor for 8 years and a programmer.

    About a year ago, me and a few designer/artist friends started up Fireskies Studios to formally release our games and other media. I was programming strictly in Javascript, VB and some Unity 3D, and was adamant about using anything else, until my friend and teammate Brent Hamel convinced me to start using C2. We've released games for iOS and Android, and we will soon be releasing PC games built in C2.

    I want to be more involved in the Construct community as I believe I can learn a lot from the new technology of today but also to help others with tutorials and different programming concepts. I also find this community very friendly and energetic (and I have a general distaste for Flash!).

    I hope to get to know a lot of you! Visit our website and check out my BLOG from time to time!

  • Hey guys,

    Im Adam Daugherty, and Ive designed games for as long as I can remember. I used the original construct a few years ago, but switched platforms because Im running Mac machines and wanted to develop for iOS. Well, I got pretty fed up with those other platforms, so through the miracle of Parallels and a much beefier machine than I had back then... Im back to Construct!!

        Anyway, I hope to learn a few names and put out some great content. Im really excited to back working with this powerful tool! Feel free to drop by my site and say hi! meltingskystudios.com

  • Hello everyone. My name is Kaj.

    I'm so happy to join this amazing site in hopes of learning how to use Construct 2.

    I work in transportation and I don't have a lot of time to put into learning the entire coding process, so I'm glad I've found Construct 2. I just recently bought a Macbook Pro in which I will be returning very shortly to purchase a PC instead because I'd like to download the proper Construct 2.

    I have played so many games of different types and genres, fighting games & beat em' ups being my favourite.

    Street Fighter, Tekken, Virtua Fighter, Dead or Alive, Batman Arkham Series, Sleeping Dogs, Little Fighter 2 Love them ALL! <img src="smileys/smiley9.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    This past year or so I've been writing down some great ideas for a 2D Fighter that I'd love to put together.

    I love 3D games, though I find that there is a certain beauty in 2D games that can't be taken away.

    Plus, I personally believe that the game developers haven't even touched the surface of 2D Fighters, the possibilities can be mind blowing. Hopefully I'm here to change that and create newer possibilities for the next generation of gaming. Thanks for having me. <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • Hello! My name is Chris.

    I've been testing Construct 2 and am really enjoying it so far, I am a student programmer, but have found Construct 2 to be so easy i will be hopefully be using it for a few new projects in the future, will be purchasing a license next month!

  • Hi all Construct2 gurus

    Im a newbie in construct2. Hope to join you guys abnd build great games.

  • Hey, I too am new to this, and am looking to try and set up a nice easy game, after completing two of those tutorials.

  • I think C2 has more features, than powerfull CC. Ok, I try. Scirra Forever! <img src="smileys/smiley2.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • Hey Guys,

    Im a beginner and I dont really know much of C2 <img src="smileys/smiley11.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    but Im very happy to learn with your posts <img src="smileys/smiley2.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    Ouh yes... and my english is not the best but I'll try my best <img src="smileys/smiley36.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • Hey Everyone!

    My name is Austin and I'm a Game Art graduate from Full Sail University and have been involved in game making for most of my life.

    I'm happy to become a part of this community and will contribute in any way I can!

  • Hello,

    My name is Tore and I am a Norwegian project manager/content developer for e-learning.

    I am just starting out with C2, hoping to use it to make educational games both for my job and for my kids! <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • I love mading Games

  • Oh hello.... I installed Construct 2 (free) last week, and have been going through the tutorials. I'm really amazed at how simple it is, but also seems (so far at least) to be able to do some very advanced stuff, things that would take me a long time in JavaScript.

    So yeah, I'll hopefully be using it to create some HTML5 games. I love everything I've seen about Construct 2 so far!

  • Hey people! Just joined!

    I want to make a question based game, with 3 answer choices for kids by using phonics as a basis for the questions, anyone got any useful tips for me? :)

    I can find plenty of tutorials to make shooting games, but none on a question + answer game using images for the questions and answers.

    Any replies are greatly appreciated! Thanks again! :D

  • Hello fellow Constructors. My name is Jim and I found Construct 2 from a LinkedIn post about the death of Flash. I just had finished with my project when Apple chose to put a stack right through Flash's heart. So begrudgingly, having already learned several other programming languages starting with Basic in the 80s, I began the task of learning HTML5 the hard way in order to recreate a project when all of a sudden out of heaven came Construct 2. Hallelujah!! It is so easy because it works the way the our minds think. Based on images (sprites) driven by logic. I do not care about the code, I just want it to work and boy does Construct work well.

    I am a K-8 teacher who was studying to be an engineer and took a hard right turn in my career. Civil Engineering was boring and constrained by city departments which thought they knew best. In college, I was always teaching and helping college students with their tech problems, many whom would comment on how I would make a good teacher. Well I receive my K-8 credential in 1996 with a supplement in Computer Applications in Education. I used all my schooling and wide array of other experience to teach and mentor students in pulling network cable (Telephone communication in USMC), network infrastructure installation, programming, video, audio, graphic, web design, etc. My teach experience was mostly project base learning instruction integrated into all other core curriculum.

    Currently I am recreating our Flash based course on how to become a better writer which use the fact that we think in pictures not words. So why not use pictures to teach how all the grammar is in real photographs or images in our mind.   We just need to understand how to pull the data from the image and organize it into sentences, then paragraphs, and onto essays. I am working with a college professor who has thought writing for 30 + years and turning his lessons into a game, (which means highly interactive and engaging content when I talk to other teachers).   I love how fast Construct 2 keeps meeting my needs each time I have strived to understand what Constructed 2 could do, and the next thing you know, it does way more than it did just the day before. Thank you all you code lovers for all those plugins and of course the Scirra team.

    I have always been the mad scientist type since I was little and love teaching students how things work. Unfortunately now days, I would be in jail for many of my most exciting experiments I did as a child. I hope to some day work with another charter school's students teaching real world science and math using a custom built bus as a mobile science and technology platform.   In the past, my students, teaching partner, and I would go camping or sailing on a 156 foot ship and study the world at large.   I once had an RV which was purchase at my charter school for home schoolers for this very purpose but sadly that dream slipped away.

    I look forward to completing the high school, college, and adult version of our project this summer and then begin developing the children's version soon after. I will also be developing a series of Logic lesson studies using Construct 2 gaming structure for students of all ages on how to think logically in every day life. If this, then that, else big mistake. OOPS!! <img src="smileys/smiley3.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
