The Official Introduce Yourself Thread

  • Hey everybody.

    I think I may be an older person on this forum, but that's ok with me, as long as I'm learning. :)

    I'm a husband, father, musician, teacher and I work in a computer lab at a middle school. I love my job and am hoping to include a section of my class on basic video game design. I've tried other programs but they've seemed too complicated, this is the first I've found to be mostly user friendly. This forum has also already been very helpful! Thanks!

    In my spare time (not much) I write a ton of music. You can find some of it here at New Cool Now Music

    I write silly and fun songs and more serious "indie folk" (Elliot Smith meets Sufjan in a bar and hugs him gently) type music.

    I've written music for a few video games before, but I'm not much of an electronic type of musician, though I can do a lot with just Garageband and a midi-keyboard.

    Here's the first game I'm working on now. My First or Second Game Attempt It's a capx file.

    Thanks for the love everyone.

    Peace,

    Steve

    Farting Birds on the Chrome Web Store

    It's time for Farting Birds! Farting Birds is a game for everyone. Lots of fun and laughs! The player's task is to get the golden eggs and diamonds, frightening and destroying enemies with huge farts: Fatality Farts and Extra Fatality Farts.

    Have fun!

  • Just saying hi and mentioning that it seems I'm not the only one who greatly misses a certain company that used to be based in Oakhurst, CA...

    Your toolkit looks great so far, much simpler than something like Flash yet with a lot of power built into it...

    Hopefully if you play your cards right, you could position yourselves to be the "Flash Builder" of HTML5 (or more likely get bought by whoever wants to be in that position)! <img src="smileys/smiley2.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    Great job!

  • Hi TeamJT, what a reference. It took a few googling to get it ^^

    Another Scirra's secret revealed <img src="smileys/smiley2.gif" border="0" align="middle">

    Also hi to all the other new members who introduced themselves.

    Welcome aboard.

  • Okay, So I'm kinda embarrassed because I been on this forum for some time now and have not done this yet... But anyways here we go!

    Hello all My name is Don, I go by the name "ThatNerd". I came up with this idea for a 2D platform game December of 2010. I've been dancing around what engine to use Construct Classic or Multimedia Fusion 2. long story short I decided to use Construct for my project. I hope to have a demo of my game sometime soon though it's difficult to say when because of Friends, Work, School, etc.     

    I've been playing Video game since the late 80's and it started with Super Mario Bros... Yea Classic Gamer right here!

  • So, who are you?

    Hello My name is John Wienke

    I have been here for about 2 months now. But I just realized that the only way I would get an introduction badge is by formally introducing myself. I have been employed as a web developer for the Wisconsin State Journal a local state news paper were I live for the last 2 years. In my free time I am a freelance web developer/designer.

    How did you find out about Construct? I have no life, and spend all my time on line doing searching for things that interest me. Just being honest.

    What brought you into the seedy underworld of making games? Lets put it this way I have always wanted to be a game developer, and now that the languages I know best are the way to go, and Construct 2 exists it is all possible. As far as seedy underworld goes that is something I am trying to get away from.

    What interests you? Programming.

    Where have you been? A very dark place that I would do anything to get out of.

    Where are you headed? A much better place now that I am here. <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • Hi, my name is Felice ,but my friends call me Edi, I am native Italian and my interest in video games started with the wonderful CBM64. I'm a computer mechanic, love playing my guitars and writing music. My first computer was a homemade assembled 286 with 5 (!) MB MFM HDD and I progressively moved up to a 486 DX2-66, and then a "fast" AMD 586 DX2 120 MHZ.

    I'm a classic gaming nerd,even if i've been making games for around 10 years, starting with the 3D-RAD PRO (still an amazing rad tool) till i found Construct on Sourceforge few months ago and the very very promising C2 on Scirra website.

    I would love to learn how to program webgames and exchanging tips and tricks about videogames even if i'm still a big newbie.

    Thank you for accepting me into this group of wonderful people....EDI <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • Hi all,

    My name is Karl, I'm from the north of Scotland, a friend of mine sent me the link for the website the other day, and I downloaded Construct 2, I am really excited about the potential that it gives me to try writing some games. Although I have never written a game before, I am sure that over time I can get something together.

    Anyway, I am sure I shall be posting on the forum from time to time when I get stuck, so thanks in advance for your help.

    :D

  • Hello! Okay, I'm new to Construct but I have to say that it seems really impressive so far.

    I have been doing Flash games, mostly contract, for over 10 years now. I honestly don't know what else to say... I just want to get back to playing with Construct!
