It's all game. Even more surprising is assets being resold is a thing.
Next book I guess.

Lol, I just love all the haters.. :mrgreen:


At the end of the day, it's a business. I've mentioned this many times on the forums. You have people here complaining why their not making any revenue from their apps and I tell them you need a funding to promote that game. You can have the best designed game in the world, but if no advertising is being done then you might as well not waste your time. App reskinning is just another way to monetize. Only reason why it's faster to make money flipping because you have Flippa which is one of the biggest websites to sell apps, websites and domain names. Big companies are doing the same shit. Look at King.. Candy Crush Saga, Candy Crush Soda Saga, Farm Heroes Saga, Pet Rescue Saga. It's basically the same damn source code with different graphics and how much they're making from it is crazy, but they have the funding to advertise these games unlike a regular indie.

No hating here, like I said it's all game.

The quality of a lot of the content in the shops is the main thing that I find annoying.
I mean you should take some pride in something, even if it is just a reskin.

I do take pride in my work. I've created a few Construct 2 games from scratch with decent quality and felt much pride and joy when I actually made a game from start to finish. That's not an easy feat, especially when you get lazy and say that I will finish it next week only to work on it 3 months later. Hell, I posted a screenshot of a game several weeks back that I'm currently working on now from scratch.

This is a project that's gonna take awhile for me to finish, because I really want to study the C2 Multiplayer plugin and utilize it well in this game. It's limited as hell though.. However, if it works well, I can turn it into a Game Template to sell on the Scirra Store. :mrgreen:
