Don't miss out on the latest and greatest new features in Construct 3.
In this release we're adding an interesting new export option for Windows! Named the Windows wrapper (WebView2) export option, this is a lightweight app that bundles your project and runs it using the Microsoft Edge WebView2 runtime - basically a webview control provided by Windows, which helps keep the file size down. This doesn't have all the same features that NW.js has, but it's a useful new alternative for quickly and easily sharing your projects on Windows. We previously experimented with this on the forum, and we're now building it in to Construct to get some wider testing. You can learn more about this export option in the new tutorial Exporting to Windows with the WebView2 wrapper. We'll also be looking in to enhancing this export option further in future.
Other than that as is usual now we have some more new examples, and a batch of other bug fixes and changes. Also in case you missed it, the new Construct Asset Store has lanched - see the linked blog post for more details!
