Construct 3 Gamejam with Newgrounds

Construct 3 Gamejam with Newgrounds

We know you're all excited to get your hands on the public beta this Tuesday (and we're at least equally as excited to get it into your hands!). The public beta will run for 8 weeks using the Free Edition of Construct 3.

In the eighth week (15th of May to 21st may) we'll be running a gamejam with the awesome people at The theme of this jam will be announced nearer the time (we've already got a cool theme but don't want to show our hand just yet!).

Even though it's several weeks away, we're all excited to see what you all come up with!

Are you a little worried about making games with the free edition of Construct 3 for the jam? Read on...

All Features Unlocked

Unlike Construct 2, we now have the option and ability to experiment with unlocking all features when and where we want (think free weekends for Construct 3...).

The Newgrounds gamejam seems like the perfect moment to unlock all Construct 3 features to everyone for the duration of the jam! This means for the duration of the game jam you'll be able to try out every feature of Construct 3 for free.

"I was amazed at how quickly I could compile and play a game project in Construct 3, without ever leaving my web browser. People are gonna love this."
- Tom Fulp, Newgrounds Founder

Tom Fulp's given the alpha a go and we agree, we think you're all going to love Construct 3!

That's a great idea to force people buy the subscription then, once they have used and over used the locked features!
quoted from Psychokiller1888

It's not like @Ashley and @Tom haven't been open and honest with everyone about the subscription plan from the VERY BEGINNING. And they have stated recently and clearly that this is a BETA run. No one is being FORCED into anything. The purpose is to encourage people to check out C3 and see if they like it. It's basically a trial run. This is nothing new and is done by other companies virtually the same way.

there's a lot of hobbyists and young people don't have income. a lot of us started using tools like this when we were 12. a lot of games were made by mostly young people, thats how these game design things got popular. Trust me... why do u think Mlcrosoft bought Mlnecraft for billions, its the new Leg0s. they want to be able to try Construct. To see what they can create before they get serious. Construct 2 could be the perfect beginners tool. now.... my middle school/junior highs had a class called Multimedia that used a horrible program. i showed him a program directed for schools. i think american teachers could use Construct 3. great work!

YOO, I never thought about the power that being a browser based engine will give you...

10/10 on the idea to having free days/weeks for game jams... Even if I plan on buying premium :D

Exporting is the biggest issue facing the Construct franchise right now. Especially in the mobile category. If Construct 3 makes that as smooth as glass it will be a success. Otherwise it'll remain in relative obscurity in the future, with other tools far eclipsing it in power, usability, and user-friendliness.
