IMO: I also love that C2 is not a subscription based software. I believe in one time payments and if Scirra is to raise the price tag, I'd rather pay more for Construct 3 one-time and use it whenever I want, then to pay for it monthly.
I would not pay more than the price of other tools at one big payment. Especially if I don't know if any of my games can make money someday. But paying a a little rate, say 96€/Year = 8€/Month I would do it, also only to try something out for one Month or two. (Of course easy cancelable payment (to end of Month) is required)
There are other Game Creators out there like: Click Team Fusion 2.5 http://www.clickteam.com/clickteam-fusion-2-5
and the open source GDevelop http://compilgames.net
and of course Adventure Game Studio http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk
They all setting pressure on C2..X and could overtake C2..X in the future if C2 does not implement required features. For my point of view, boolean Variable is a piece of cake to implement (like many many other older feature requests). Or it's not a piece of cake, than the implementation of C2 must be really q&d.. so it is not as easy as someone could think.
As I sad, i believe the problem is the only real developer is Ashley.. and maybe there we are back to the continuous money stream needed...
To put it all into a nutshell: For a better Construct (more features, even more rapidly developed, also features for professionals like scripting, more targets ( e.G. UWP ) , I personally would pay on a monthly (fair) basis, but I wouldn't pay more than 99€ at once.
By the way: IMHO, multi platform support for the editor is not needed. If I want to run it on the Mac or Linux, I can use Virtual Box with Windows for it. Also multi Language support is not needed - not for the editor. People who are not (enough) speaking English, are mostly Kids. The problem is: they usually have no own money.
