System requirements

These are the minimum system requirements for Construct to run.

Internet connection

Construct can work offline. However you must be online to load Construct for the first time. When you load Construct for the first time, wait until you see a notification in the corner indicating Construct is ready to work offline. Then you can use Construct without an Internet connection.

Note that if you purchase a subscription and work offline, you must start Construct while connected to the Internet at least once every 7 days to re-validate your subscription. However if you have not purchased a subscription, you can use Construct offline permanently.

Supported browsers

Construct should run in any modern browser. This includes:

While these are the minimum supported versions, we strongly recommend ensuring your browser is up-to-date with the latest version.

Construct does not support Internet Explorer, which was retired by Microsoft in June 2022. However in Windows 10 Microsoft replaced Internet Explorer with the Edge browser, which is supported from version 79+. (Note the modern Chromium-based Microsoft Edge is supported, but the legacy Edge is not supported.)

Supported operating systems

Construct should run on any system with a modern browser. This includes:

  • Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, 11 or newer
  • Mac: OS X / macOS 10.9 or newer
  • Linux: 64-bit Ubuntu 14.04+, Debian 8+, openSUSE 13.3+, or Fedora Linux 24+
  • Chrome OS: Any Chrome OS device updated to v67+
  • Android: Any Android 5.1+ device with at least 1GB RAM
  • iOS: Any iOS 14.1+ device

WebGL support

Construct requires the browser to support WebGL, which is a modern high-performance graphics technology for browsers. Almost all modern devices support WebGL. However if you see a message about WebGL not being supported, try installing any available system updates, and check your graphics drivers are up-to-date.
