I am sorry that I am cowardly enough to use a pseudonym.
I found out about Construct 2 in looking for multiplatform tools for development for mobile devices to make my first game or two. This would be my first attempt at making a game, other than using level editors for existing games. As far as I can tell, for me it is basically a choice between Construct 2 and Game Maker HTML5.
I bought the early adopter standard license here right away hoping to get a properly complex game going asap, in spite of the risk of investing in what very possibly may turn out to be a dead project. I did this in part because there was nothing else that looked as promising for noobs aside from Game Maker, yet Game Maker did not offer anything even close to a full free trial of the HTML5 edition. YoYo are not even providing a free or low cost trial and asking for 70 at best (with a coupon I received in an email).
I will probably talk more about what I am interested in after I learn the proper lingo so I won't offend experienced users here. I will be focusing on a real time action/puzzle game at first.
I hope the company grows and continues to offer a quality product with a full-featured introductory free or low cost license for people who have not made any money yet using it. It seems to me the most reasonable model for growth and maintenance of market share.
