Yesterday I had my first contact with construct2 and followed the "How to make a platform game" tutorial.
I worked out a very simple example of a schematic platform which I later exported to a desktop executable obtaining Ubuntu64/32, OSX an Win32 applications.
Then I wanted to send it to my friends to show them what I made, so I zipped (winRAR) the Win32 folder to send it via email. It all worked perfectly BUT the RAR file was 17 MByte!!! It's so HUGE for a "game" with nothing more than a background pic, a stick-man like player sprite, a platform, and a barrel... no sound, one layout and NO gameplay implemented...
I can't believe resulting projects have such a size... I can't even imagine how huge would be a complete game with graphics, sound an gameplay
Am I doing something wrong?
Is there a way to reduce size of exported projects?
Thank in advance to everybody.
