My name is Matthew Slade. I live with my mother in a neighborhood house in Georgia, USA. I'm am an only child, besides my step-brother, and my dad has a step-son.
I've found out about Construct 2 through what I consider an unusual way: searching "is it possible to distribute freeware on game maker forum" on Google; I was trying to see if I could do so, and lower down the list, I saw "Construct 2 is better than GameMaker: Studio"; a user was explaining on these very forums why, and after some research, I've decided to choose that over the latter; it was simpler for me, because I didn't have to work with a programming language, but the big deal-maker was that Scirra, the website distributing that program, was reminiscent of the old YoYo Games sandbox - something lost in recent years.
I plan on creating Super Mario fan-games*, such as one similar to (but not exactly) the New Super Mario Bros. games**, those where Princess Peach is the main character, and a grittier, RPG-like version of the traditional games, games that use unexpected palettes for 8-bit graphics, and those that send good subliminal messages to players, among others, all of which will be wholesome - that is, no foul language, for example.***
The most important part of my game development career is that I have fun in the process, and that it will be a very enjoyable experience for years and maybe decades to come. You can expect some great content come out of my work, so see you there.
* They will be freeware, no matter what, and probably only distributed to the Scirra Arcade and as a download on a forum of mine due to legal concerns.
** They will actually be made "better"; for one, expanding on the usual, such as brick and item blocks.
*** I am actually a wholesome person, just like the games.
