  • Hello fellow programmers!

    I am Satellite23. I am a young, hobbyist programmer. I have used GameMaker for years and years (at least a decade), so I understand how to make fun, accessible games. I took one year of a Java class, and I have experimented with that on my own time.

    I've never been involved with any serious projects. I just like designing games for fun.

    Anyways, I heard many great things about Construct, so I decided to download the free version and start using. So far, I really like it. Reminds me a little bit like GM, which I am an expert at using.

    Alright, I just spent about three hours working on my first Construct project. It's a little Pong-type thing. No purpose, no goal, no end, just really simple stuff to get my feet wet. A similar project was also my first for Gamemaker when I started getting into it again about 4-5 years ago.

    Is there anywhere I can post the game so you guys can play it? I don't know if I should upload it to the site because it's not a real game, just a little thing I made. Wouldn't want to use the bandwith for a piece of junk.

    Anyways, thanks for reading this, and I hope to start using construct to make better, cooler games!

  • Hello all!

    I recently purchased a personal licence of Construct 2 and look forward to getting started using it. I tried to register for the forums and found out I was still linked to them with the same email from many years ago. At least seven or so! Crazy! I did try using Construct Classic when it was the main thing being offered when I was a teenager as I preferred it to Game Maker.

    Once Unity was multiplatform I sort of went on to that but I just got a a volunteer gig working with kids at one of my local Hospitals (I'm now 21 that's how long it's been!) and one of the things I offered to do was Animate the kids drawings in Spriter and add to them and make interactive environments for the kids to literally play their drawings.

    Anyway, I just wanted to say hello (again) and say I look forward to meeting some of you and actually meeting some of you again. It's been a long time so I don't really remember how to use Construct, and I've never even opened 2 up even after purchasing it. But I look forward to making some games and having some ideas come to life! See you guys around!

    P.S. I do a lot of Orchestral music now a days. Have been for awhile now. If anyone needs some strings or piano for their games please let me know and I'll try to work something out for you. ;)

    You can check out my Soundcloud here and use most of the tracks already made as it is, I have about 50: soundcloud.com/no-audible-dialogue

  • Hello Construct 2 Forums!

    I have recently been trying out Construct 2 and just purchased the personal edition. I have been creating art for video games for several years. I started making an app with Construct 2's free edition but reached its limitations (100 events). I'm hoping the personal edition will be everything I need to make my current project and many more!

    Cheers!

  • Hello,

    I'm Fred and i'm french. I've discovered Construct few months ago with Construct Classic and i really love to work on it.

    I've read a lot of tutorials and start to make a first small platformer game. Construct is just so great to unleash every type of creativity!!

    Sorry for my bad english.

  • Huzzah n' Bacon! Tis the Duke of J, but you can call me Jake. I'm a Moving Image Arts student looking to get into video game design. I'm basically an avid gamer with dreams of creating his own IP someday. Yeah, I know. Such a lowly origin story from someone who calls himself a Duke. Well I'm not Batman, so deal. :P Anyways, I'm looking to get my feet wet and heard good things about Construct. Here's hoping I can keep my ADD in check long enough to actually be productive. :) Don't stop dreaming!

  • Heeeeeeello from Mauritius!!!

    Don't worry, you'll hear from it more often from now on.. LOL...

    Err.. The saying goes like that: leave no stones unturned...

    And Construct 2 was just probably hiding under that stone I didn't bother looking at.. My mistake.. Started with many other game engines.. even with the big 3D guys.. but Construct 2 had just the stuffs this kid ever needed to make his first game ever..

    My salute to the creators of Construct 2 and just.. everybody involved in here..

    Ok.. I'm gonna try getting myself useful now..

    Cheers ;)

  • Hello, my Name is Tyler Spencer.I am 19 years old, live in Bellevue Washington dont go to school and have a passion for games. I have a variety of programming experiences with some c#, xaml, Java, python...

    Recently I have dabbled in the arts of gamemaker gml however would like to look at construct as well. In the past I have made tutorials and reviews of gamemaker, and plan to do so with construct.However, I first must continue to familiarize myself with the program.

    In light of that, I can say that Construct may have the upper hand on gamemaker thus far. Both have some strengths...this is a discussion for another time.

    In my spare time I enjoy playing rpg fantasy genre games. Hate pokemon and final fantasy styled games with a passion.. I also enjoy rts games such as Warcraft III. Couldn't bring myself to like WoW, GW1 was so much better. GW2 I try every once in a while but it cant compete with the original.

    If I am not playing games. I dabble in making them. Admittedly, I usually only create conceptual demos. Meaning, never a full game, only pieces to them such as player controls. Some basic actions and things. I guess I make "engines" for games and don't use them...

    I also have played around with creating game servers in java and integrating them with gamemaker.

    I am however starting an actual game this time around. One that I plan to get into a finished state if ever a game can be called finished. It will be a mobile game. Tablets and smartphones.

    I am artistically challenged. Usually this is why I stick to only demos. But, for my future game, I have gotten in contact with an artist and look forward to seeing where that leads us!

    In the past I have worked with companies and have gotten #1 rated and sold apps across apple, amazon, windows etc. I am no longer a part of these companies as I discovered that while I have a passion for what programming can do. I prefer coding on my own time for my own desires. Regardless, it was a fun experience.

    Professionally, I am a building inspector. Lead based paint, and asbestos licensed. Basically, I make sure the building materials are safe and people dont get sick or injured. As well as testing air quality and other fun things.

    My computer is of an enthusiast level. I believe there are a minority of people that have a similar setup. But I do video encoding, photoshop, compiling games etc... I love building and overclocking, just getting the best out of computers possible.

    For you tech people out there here are some specs:

    • CPU: Intel i7 3930k 6 core 4.5ghz
    • MOBO: p9x79 pro
    • RAM: 8x4gb sticks of ram. 32gb 1600mhz
    • PSU: ax1200i 80plus platinum
    • GPU: gtx 780

    It is liquid cooled.

    And that is a little about me. I plan to stick around for a while, or hope to at least haha.

  • I am a HTML5 Game Developer..

  • Hello! My name is Edward. I live in Japan with my family.

    I teach English and own a school.

    I'd like to use Construct to make simple games for children to learn English.

    So far I've been able to click 3 nice games together in under 2 hours and set up a high score MySQL database and some of my students in my English school have already had fun with these games that I've made.

    By the way, I'm not charging my students to play these games but does this still require me to upgrade?

    Anyway I've been so impressed with this software I'm going to be upgrading anyway.

    Thanks.

    Edward.

    You may be better off emailing Scirra directly, as they are interested in educational usage of C2.

    Oh, and welcome :)
