The Official Introduce Yourself Thread

  • Greeting from Denmark.

    I programmed my first game back in 1993 in Turbo Pacal.

    Nothing much has happened for me on the game developing front since then, until I ran into Contruct 2. Tried it out, liked it, made a little game, and posted the game here in the Scirra Arcade.

    Hopefully more will come.

  • Hi,

    My name is Nathan Hemstock aged 29, I'm a games designer from Doncaster within the UK. I have held a keen interest within games design since i was a young boy back in the 80s. Since my dad purchased me a Nes back in the late 80s to the start of the 90s.

    Games loved back then were the original Mario and Zelda sagas. I have

    developed a few games in the past and crossed several formats starting in "dark basic" producing a 2d Game called "system reflex". I then moved to a software called realmcrafter in which as a forums we were given the source engine. I redeveloped the engine within blitz 3D and blitz plus expanding the user libs and building a game that could work on a server with ease and without problem also adding additional shaders. Bloom, waters and shadows which took a very long time to develop. After 5 years of development the game is now on green light. All my own work with some payed help. I have a degree within games design and have tryed out for the industry... but i could not get a job since competition is tough and my skills are not the best.

    this is the game link, it would be nice for a outside opinion.

    you can download the game at

    relicaonline.com

    so why am i here?

    I'm here to start development for the app market and the web(facebook). Now i wont lie i have purchased both "Game Maker Professional" and "construct 2 Personal licence". I'm going to use both software's. And try and get myself as involved as possible.

    if people need help with 3d , 2d, textures ect give me a shout i am more than willing to help others if i can.

  • Hello,

    My name is David and i'm new to this site, still trying to learn the basics of construct and getting the general dynamics of it down. but i digress, i am a young potential developer trying to learn the ropes and construct my own games and progress my knowledge in game development and game design.

  • Hello from Peru,

    My name is Carlos and Im a Web Developer with a lot of desire to make games. Im not so new at game development, I was making a PBBG called Xhelos, that is currently on Alpha Stage, but I will take a little break from it to create a small game that is in my mind.

    Hope to meet more people interested in C2!, specially from South America.

  • Hello Every One i am Dinesh and i am a new developer in gaming world i am 16 years of age ...here are some of my games...

  • Hello Everybody, My name is Hiel and I am building my first game ever!

  • Buenas! meu nome � Ledson Vanini, sou novo em cria��o de jogos mas estou muito empolgado com os recursos do CONSTRUCT 2.

  • <img src="smileys/smiley36.gif" border="0" align="middle" /> hi

  • My name is Dylan Williams. I'm 21 years old. I'm new to the game development community. I've been playing video games since I was 4 years old. My first game was Kirby's Adventure for the NES. It's one of my favorite games of all time, along with Crash Bandicoot and Spyro for the PS1 and PS2. My favorite games for PS3 include: Uncharted, God of War 3, MLB 10: The Show, and Heavy Rain. I enjoyed playing video games so much, that I thought to myself one day, "Why not make them?" That was about 6 years ago. It's been a rocky start, but I think I've finally got it figured out and I'm now in the process of creating my first game.

    I hope you all enjoy my creations!

  • Hi everyone!

    I'm Danny, a computer science teacher. Construct 2 seem to be great for game creation without the programming part. I'll take a look at it and probably gonna use it with my 14-15 years old students at school. I'm sure they gonna love this project!

  • Hi,

    I'm french graphic designer.

    I mostly want to produce some game on mobile device, so i'm testing free version of construct2 right now.

  • Hello! I am 32 years old and am fortunate and blessed to live in Colorado, just south of Denver. I have been enjoying games since before I was 10 years old and always thought it would be amazing to get involved in creating games. This past year I had the opportunity to get involved in game development via one of our companies clients and so I am diving in full force. I have already had the chance to re-skin a few games and get my feet wet with C2. I am more of a designer and front-end developer and so Construct 2 is a perfect fit for me and allows me to get into the game dev world without having to be nearly as smart as man of the other talented folks out there that make games.

    Now for some favorites. I have had various systems in my video game journey. The first system my family owned was a regular 8-bit NES. My favorite NES game of all time is Solstice although there are so many others that I thoroughly enjoyed including Castlevania 3, Metal Gear, TMNT, Star Tropics, Duck Tales, Contra, Ninja Gaiden, Tecmo Super Bowl, etc.

    I have since bought various consoles over the years and remember the some of the major releases and genre front runners such as Doom, Tomb Raider, Metal Gear Solid, etc.

    As of late I am a PS3 man and some of the best games I have played to date seem to be on that console. The Uncharted series is quite possibly my favorite franchise of all time and the I really enjoyed "The Last of Us", so much so that it may have ruined the majority of video games that will be released in the future. I am a huge Gran Turismo fan and have been playing them since the PS One days.

    I also enjoy the tablet and mobile game world but more as a casual player. I love infinite runners and simple puzzle games. I am looking forward to diving into games similar to that with the C2 engine and will most likely be looking for some help from all of you experts! Looking forward to getting involved in the conversation!

  • So first time user and after downloading the program and clicking on new project the construct 2 program crashes.

    The program worked fine for 1 min then it just keeps crashing. SMH I really wanted to try this program but it has left me with a bad taste.

  • Based on my demographic, I'm an atypical game developer.

    Why?

    There are not a lot of females of my vintage either involved in or interested in game dev. Women, sadly, are still the minority in this pursuit (but we are gaining ground... yay!) and, as far as age goes, you can estimate my years based on the following clues: My first computer was a Vic-20. Data was stored on a cassette tape (I'm sure that some of you have never even seen one of these in real life, let alone used one). When I started experimenting with technology, I owned a portable record player, "mobile phones" were the size of a large brick and called 'car phones' because they were *literally* attached to a car. I played Pac Man so frequently that I still have a distinct bump on the side of my middle finger from calluses courtesy of the joystick, telephones had dials and, because I lived in a rural area, my family's telephone line was actually shared with two other neighbors. Oh, and the Internet? *Not even invented yet*. What??!! That's cray-zeee!

    However, as a modified adage goes: 'You can't always judge an ebook by it's cover page'.

    I am primarily an artist/designer but, on the technical side: I manage my own linux servers, I've been developing Flash games for over a decade, I construct ( + map and texture) 3D models, developed databases, and have intermediate knowledge of quite a few programming languages. I lived through and survived the 'Dot-Bomb,' via a children's entertainment website I developed and maintain that currently celebrates over 15 years of moderate success.

    Being that my strengths lie more in the arts than the technical, Construct 2 is an absolute Godsend for me. With an excellent manual, wonderful tutorials, and fantastic community, I've been able to get a pretty quick grasp on the nuts and bolts of this extremely intuitive software. I love how, instead of spending endless hours on the programming side of things, I can quickly get the game mechanics laid out and move onto developing the graphics and getting things ready for deployment. Not since Flash have I found an easier tool to work with and, now that Flash is in a hospital bed hooked up to a slow drip, Construct 2 is the exact thing that I needed to allow me to continue my work in a way that will conform to the newer technologies.

    I downloaded the free version less than a month ago, read the fantastic manual, experimented voraciously, and recently upgraded to the pro version after officially falling in love with Scirra and Construct 2!

    Thank you to the Scirra team for my favorite new tool, and to everyone for your great tutorials, plugins, ideas and other contributions. I look forward to seeing you all around the forums and, to some day perhaps, being innovative enough to be able to give back to the community with my own contributions.

    Aloha and have a great day :)
