Hi.
I am a student in IT. I know C and C++, and learning Visual Basic and C# (I don't count Turbo Pascal in secondary school 10 years ago, I totally forgot that).
But I didn't create an application yet.
I want to make games but scared of it.

Because of it, I searched the net to find a 2D Game Maker program. The popular programs are mostly paid programs and some of them are very expensive. When I found Construct, I became very happy. In fact, I don't like open source programs much, but it seems it is an important feature to have in a game maker.

I have watched all tutorial videos created by Andla and it helped me to get used with the Construct.
While exercising those videos, I thought "hmm, I see, that is the way to do that" and similar. I also could understand more about application creation process. I think Construct will give me encouregement towards programming and creating applications.

I want to thank the developers for such interesting project. :)

Welcome

Open source programs just mean that they are free and you can read the source code if you like...as opposed to close source programs, where if all the developers were on a bus and got hit by a train there would be no more updates because nobody else would have their source code.

Anyway, enjoy :)

hehe I know that :)

I meant the "programs", not the "open source" part. I don't have any issues with open source, if there is any misunderstood.
