Construct 3 Plans Now Available For Purchase!

by Laura_D | 6th, June 2017

Between social media, the Gamejam and oodles of bug reports, we’ve been blown away by the amount of support you guys have shown for C3 and it’s really appreciated! Your feedback is what helps us to improve Construct 3, and if you decide to purchase a plan, you’ll be helping us even more!

You can check out the available plans over on’s pricing page.

Currently we are only accepting payments via credit/debit card online. Paypal is on its way, but will take a few months before we can make it available.

Construct 2 License Holder?

If you own a Personal or Business Edition Construct 2 license you're entitled to 50% to 100% off your initial payment for Construct 3! Woohoo! Head on over to your discounts page and enter your Construct 2 license hash to claim.

If you run into problems or purchased your license on Steam, send us your Construct username and proof of purchase to [email protected] and we'll help you out.

You’ll notice we’ve still got the beta label on.

That’s because we are still working on a few things, which will appear over time. For instance right now there is no manual or official basic tutorials for Construct 3. These are not something we’ve had the time to address yet - but it is coming, we know how vital it is!

Once things begin to settle and our intrepid developers can pause their epic bug squashing quests, then work will start on some nice new features for C3 (and C2!) But we’ll talk more about those later.

In the mean time, we hope you enjoyed the Gamejam and the trial period for Construct 3, and we can’t wait to see what you guys do with the full edition!

Now follow us and share this

Cool. Already bought a license. Does a C3 license entitle also a C2 license? It would be good if projects cannot be completed for lack of features or plugin for C3.

@spesknight afraid not - we'll likely be adding it as an addon item for Construct 3 purchases at a later date.

I am using Construct 2 for hobby and prototyping only. It is a very good tool. I have tried Construct 3 already. It seemed to me... browser version of the Construct 2 (Yes! there are some changes...).

So... I think, Construct 3 is really overpriced. I have bought Construct 2 personal edition at 240TL. Now, Construct 3 asks to me 360TL per year for Personal Edition. Sorry but, it is too much to me.

With the C2 personnel license, it was possible to develop and sell games provided you don't earn more than 5000$. Is it the same with C3 ? I plan to buy the personnel license and see if I've time and skill to develop apps. And then, if I manage to develop as I expect and if then sales work enough, I was thinking of switching to business license. Is it ok ? I'm not a professional, not a company and, if possible, plan to release app as an individual.

@Laurent there is no revenue limit on Personal Edition, but this is not permitted for any business use whatsoever. We have Startup Business and Business Licenses now, you can read about them here:

Lookin forward to C3, but I would like to wait until the paypal option is viable... (credit cards are not soooo common here in Germany unlike the rest of the world..) Hope the discount as a C2 owner is still valid when the paypal option becomes a reality.

I´m an early adopter and NO discount... Again Scirra makes mistakes with your marketing strategies. Really I´m very disappointed...

Any updates on mobile export or multiplayer with CS3? If so I would buy.

@Tom: Just realized I DO have a credit card (.. sorry, it's barely used here around) and I even get a 100% discount after entering my C2 hashcode.. but the server borks.. HTTP 500 error.

Excellent news! I currently use C2 for educational purposes and I really enjoy and love the experience of a very reliable tool, with tons of tutorials, help of the community, resources, etc. It's amazing! -we even won a Science Fair 2 weeks ago with an educational project using C2! :D

Being said that I would love to know If there is any time limit to enter our Construct 2 license hash to claim our 50%/100% discount or If can we activate it whenever we want?

@tom as an individual with no official company, are you allowed to generate revenue with apps/games created with a personal lic. or is a personal lic. intended to be 100% revenue free?
