Herro. Imma cupcake, and I be stealin' your muffins.
I just finished the first tutorial for Construct2, and I'm mighty impressed. It reminds me of GameMaker in some ways, which is good, because GameMaker is the easiest game making tool I've ever come across (until now). It's only 2 weaknesses was that A) games made with it tended to be slow and B) it couldn't make online games that could run anywhere.
I used to study game programming using C++, Visual Basic, and BlitzPlus as a hobby, so I can fully appreciate how much easier this is than coding from scratch.
Seems I found the right solution. :)
