Is it possible to make simulation game using Construct 2?

  • Well, guys do you know games from Kairosoft?

    Is it possible to make similar game like that using Construct 2?

    If it's possible then what I need to know, such as basic things etc

    Thanks

  • 1. No

    2. C2 can create almost any 2D game, given enough time and ability.

    3. Depends on what experience you currently have with C2. Have you read the manual? Done some of the tutorials? Looked at the templates? Looked at the arcade? Have you previous game creation knowledge?

  • Definetely possible. But you'll probably need a server and a backend.

    What's that for?

  • Normally you have a database do secure data.

    Also for Multiplayer/Friends etc its necessary to have a server.

    And normally you don't calculate things in the frontend but in the backend.

  • You may save everything in local storage. But this is not very secure and a mess.

    Anyway, I dont think a game like this is adequate as a beginners project.

    Anyway, I dont think a game like this is adequate as a beginners project.

    I prefer to save everrything in local storage, as this is my first project and i want to keep it simple

    BTW, why this method will be a mess? Just curious to know

    Why is this not adequate to be a beginner's project?

    Any way to make it become "noob" friendly?

    Thanks for your input

  • It's a mess cause you cant search for things. Databases provide very useful tools to get the data you need.

    In LocalStorage you always need to get everything since you can just store "text".

    I dont know the game, but normally games like these are quite complex:

    • Economy systems
    • Lot of Popups
    • Lot of features

    Any complete tutorial to learn more about using database in construct2?

    Is it using mysql? I learned mysql for about 2 years and I think it will be sufficient

    Any advanced game tutorial with the same system like economy system, popup and other fancy features?

    Just tried to google it and can't find even one example

  • As I said, it's not that easy.

    You need to know about PHP, AJAX, JSON and MySQL. Setup a database and a PHP backend.

    There are no tutorials like this cause these are very huge game elements which are always different.

    I think it's the best to start with a simple game like a platformer oder sidescroller.

    Well, that's sound hard to do

    Btw, just to make it clear, what I want to make is a game, something similar like Plague

    play.google.com*store/apps/details?id=com.miniclip.plagueinc

    you tube . com * watch?v=QWmr96nYOAE

    change * to /

    Is making such game need a lot of effort as it seems simple

    And also, I only got about 3 months to make it, so is it possible for such newbie like me?

    -edit-

    Just found a very similar game with what I want to make, anyone care to try it and give me some input about what should i learn?

    You can found it here and it's for android

    play.google.com*store/apps/details?id=com.PJgamestudio.ElectionStory14

  • Both games you postet are not that easy to do!

    You can see that there are a lot of game elements and menus. Also both games need a very good balancing and working algorithms. Game development isnt as easy as it seams. And making the game work is just 20% of work. You still need menus, highscores, settings, sharebuttons, finishing touches and connect your game to a store.

    I don't want to demoralize you but I saw a lot of beginners who were trying to make huge games and ended up with nothing. Rather do something really really small and finish it.

    I'm in position of not being able to create small project so I ended up with the political party manager game

    3 months is the time I got, do you think it will be enough to create the core of the game ?
