The Official Introduce Yourself Thread

  • Hello, everyone! I'm Bartu, a student in Germany. I've dreamt about making games since I was a child, so here goes nothing!

  • hello!!

  • Hi there.

    I've just downloaded the free version of Construct2 per advice of Nick Sweetman whose course on Udemy has been an excellent primer on game art. I'm not a shill, but the URL is here: udemy.com/2d-game-art-foundation

    If Nick is here, Hi Nick!

    A few things about me:

    • I am 42 (just turned), live in Michigan in a suburb of Detroit (no, not Flint!).
    • I'm a married dad with a 7 year old girl who I'm doing my best to make as nerdy as possible to keep the boys away later!
    • I love computers, and have been using them since I was 8 when I started on a Apple ][e. I've been in love since.
    • My job today is a professional nerd by trade doing cloudy things and web things on Linux (LAMP actually) through AWS.
    • I love all facets of creativity on the computer: art, sound, music, gaming, story telling, you name it.
    • I've been around a long time, but I don't bite!

    I hope to create a game with my daughter called "Jupface Mansion" which we are still working on; and I'm recording the entire creation process for my YouTube channel (see profile for more info there). My YouTube channel is about the nerdy things I love to do, big shock. BTW, "jup" is the short name for bulldog in my family (TL;DR our old English bully Angus used to sound like this when he ran: "huppa juppa huppa juppa" as his lips flapped this way and that). Mansion comes from me playing with my daughter indoctrinating her into nerd-dom showing her games that I loved as a kid, one of the most impactful was Maniac Mansion. So we grabbed DOTT from Steam recently and I've been showing her point and click adventures. However, she's more of a platform lover (Shantae is her favorite but I recently showed her Kid Chameleon which she liked too: youtube.com/watch to see her reactions)

    I'm thinking since I have limited time, and I need a simple platform to teach my daughter how to make games on (which we're learning together I might add, as I only know web nerdery languages such as HTML/CSS/JS/PHP/Ruby/SQL/bash/chef/etc.) and it looks like based on Nick's recommendation Construct2 is a great introduction to just that. I had of course looked at Unity and have a few udemy courses on using that too, but that's a little much for us right now and we're looking for instant gratification here, not a greenlighted steam game. Simply something to share and have fun learning together. If it gets farther than that, great, but the main intent here is to have loads of fun drawing, making music, and creating a game as Father and Daughter.

    Loves:

    • Pixel art
    • Chip tunes
    • Gothic horror (HPL)
    • Roleplaying Games (D&D, Pathfinder, etc.)
    • Programming
    • Generally, making things using nerdy bits

    My Dream (I'm sure this is a shared thing here!):

    To build a game that is fun to play, trying to find that balance of putting all the things I love to do together in 1 medium.

    I do these things for fun:

    • Gaming (duh)
    • Play minecraft with my daughter (we're learning to mod with Forge thanks to the O'reilly book of similar name)
    • DAW/VST nerdery (music making: Ableton Live, Renoise, bungloads of plug-ins)
    • Play guitar (acoustic/electric)
    • Make arty things using art programs (photoshop, krita, xara, et al.)
    • Help people learn about things I also want to learn about

    Stuff and things:

    My DeviantArt: grymmjack.deviantart.com (not really maintained anymore)

    On a final note the most inspiring games I've played lately are Crawl, and Darkest Dungeon. <3

    I'm positively pregnant with ideas and possibilities right now, so I'm going to stop talking.

    That's it! Nice to meet you all! Thanks for having a fun place to hang out and learn about Construct 2.

  • hello!!

    Hi

  • Hi

  • great to see you everyone. hopefully you guys doing well!

  • Hi everyone!

  • Hello. I am AL, in the past I have created some minor flash games. Currently I like to do some online marketing, but when I learned about Construct 2, I thought "I really have to give it a try!"

  • i like much, very good.

  • great! hello all im from indonesia and want to start make game using construct 2

  • Hello everyone!

    I've been lurking here for a little while now, and thought it was about time you all knew who I was!

    My name is Laura (known as DrSquidge elsewhere on the internet) and I'm Scirra's new social media manager! I am now helping to look after our Twitter, Facebook and YouTube (we won't talk about Instagram right now.) I've been here for almost a month now, just looking at how you guys communicate with Scirra and where improvements can be made. I will be posting some things up on the forums in the near future to ask you about your opinions on our social media, so keep an eye out for those! Oh and I am doing my best to answer any questions/respond to comments, but there's only one of me and I'm still learning the ropes! Please don't hurt me!

    Ahem, anyway! My first major task is a bit of an overhaul on YouTube - rearranging the Construct 2 Academy videos into smaller and more useful playlists, renaming/editing some videos and sorting out the 'Games Made with Construct 2' playlist. If you want us to feature your game on our channel, I'm currently writing some guidelines of what your video needs in order for us to share it. When those are done, I'll let you all know how to get your video listed! (Please don't now send me lots of emails/PMs saying "POST MY GAME NOW" because I will ignore you! You have been warned.)

    So that's a little about what I'm doing with Scirra. As for myself, I'm a Nintendo-Girl through and through who rarely goes anywhere without her 3DS. You might also find me pottering around race-tracks - I'm a sucker for fast cars.

    I won't keep you here any longer reading my drivel - but I look forward to chatting to you guys on here and across all of Scirra's social media!

  • Laura_D

  • hi , all!
