  3. Can my games communicate with a database?

    Yes. Construct 3 can communicate with databases using our networking features (such as the AJAX object). You'll likely need to create your own back end service to handle these requests.

  4. Can I make an MMORPG in Construct?

    Yes! We haven't seen any MMORPG's in Construct yet (get in touch if you've made one!). There's no reason you couldn't make an MMORPG in Construct however these classes of games are extremely technically difficult to build due to their scale. You would also need to develop substantial back end server side code to run the game.
