Short version: Let's start a group for Construct users to learn and improve their skills through game development exercises. Like a game jam, we would each work on a similar project so we can help each other work through the same kind of problems and help each other become better developers.
I've been playing around with Construct 2 for a while now and been having a blast. I'm really interested in game design, but until I can afford to pay someone to do the programming, visuals, etc. I'm gonna have to do the technical stuff myself.
So my idea for a fun way to learn would be to start a little community where we could come together to learn together and share our experiences and help each other out. We would take part in small, casual game jams together. Game jams where we would choose a simple kind of game to make , either something from the Construct 2 templates or a simple mechanic. Then we'd each (or in groups) make a game of that type.
The idea being that it would encourage us to try our hands at different kinds of game, and since we'd all be making a similar game (similar mechanics at least) we would be able to help each other through the common problems faced by making that kind of game.
At the end of each project we could share our work, talk about our successes and challenges and see how others approached the same problems. We could even vote for the group favourite game (I have a bunch of unwanted steam keys I could give out as prizes)
That's my proposal. Let me know if it sounds like something you'd want to take part in or have any suggestions. Feel free to post a reply or send me a message. I'm going to be continuing to make stuff in Construct anyway, so it might be fun to share the experience with other like-minded people and share what I learn.
