Any price reductions coming?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Oct 02, 2012 8:10 pm

So I've been using Construct for a while now but I'm still on the fence whether I should buy it or not. I enjoy playing around in it but 80 is still quite steep.

My question is, will there be any price reductions in the near future to entice people to take advantage of the lowered price and buy it while they can save some ?

They bumped up the price a few weeks ago, I was planning on buying but that put a halt to that. They probably wouldn't just tell us, that wouldn't make business sense, but maybe this holiday season we'll get lucky...

The price is not at all steep, as soon as you have a look at the competition.

I just wanted to agree with what has already been said above. For what you are actually getting for your money, compared to the competition and the outstanding quality and support that Scirra provide, you really cannot get a better product for your money.

I would also like to add that Scirra have always been really fair with announcing when they are going to increase their prices to give potential buyers a chance to get a good deal which is something that most other companies would not do.

At the end of the day I`m sure that they have reduced their prices as much as they possibly can for the end user but they also need to make a living, it`s really a lot of work to make something as great as C2.

I`m just really thankful that C2 exists and that Ashley and Tom are such great guys.Zeus2012-10-03 09:29:48

They'll probably be a Christmas sale of some sort.

This is not Steam you know?

I think this tool is great. Being an avid user for 4 years (anniversary was yesterday!) I can't recommend it enough, no matter the cost.

As for price reduction, I'd say it's more likely to happen once a great feature is released - something that would put Scirra on the spotlights, so it would be interesting for them to drop the price.gammabeam2012-10-03 16:30:43

Just to let people know, we have no discounts/sales planned for the future.

However, do keep an eye on our Twitter/Facebook etc as we sometimes run competitions and give away licenses!

Thanks for the reply, Tom.

Probably won't get it just yet then.
