1 year anniversary!

New releases and general discussions.

Hey everyone,

It's officially 1 year since Construct went open-source and released Construct 0.8! It was actually on Monday, the 27th, but I've been mad busy.

I think it's interesting to pause and reflect on where we've taken Construct this past year. 0.8 was pretty terrible to be honest, especially considering we've closed 334 bug entries since then (and that's only ones on the tracker!), it might've been better to call it 0.4! Still, I feel like we've come a long, long way since then - and Construct is ever nearer our goal of being a tool for building commercial quality 2D games. I'm very proud of it, and I'm sure the other guys are too!

0.8 was downloaded a modest 66 times, and since then we've had over 50,000 downloads (one build reaching over 16,000 alone - I wish download sites would update more often :evil:). Considering how limited and buggy the original 0.8 was, and how flexible and powerful 0.97.6 is, it makes me wonder where we will be after the next year! We've been through a lot to get here, but it's turning out to be totally worth it :D

Here's to the future!

Happy birthday construct! a truly amazing product
I think one of the best parts about construct (at least in beta) is that other people's ideas and suggestions can actually become part of the program should the devs deem it worthy!
Another great thing is the quick response of the devs :D
thanks guys

Congrats on the anniversary, you guys are doing some awesome work here. Construct has come a long way. :D

I just realized the other day I've also been using Construct almost a whole year now. I think 0.83 was my first version. Damn, time flies. And it's looking like my first finished Construct game will come in time for my personal one year anniversary :)

Wow, a year already?!? Damn, it's gone quick. I can remember the first version I downloaded was 0.83 I think. It's come a long way since then.
