C3 The Most Professional HTML5 Game Editor Available

Post » Wed Mar 15, 2017 9:13 pm

@Ashley, @Tom

I'm concerned you guys are still targeting hobbyists after viewing the C3 splash page. "Make games easier and faster than ever before?" That's a feature, that's not what C3 is. That has "hobbyist" written all over it. When I read that I think, "Wow, I can make games with this and I don't have to do a lot of work." That's pretty much the opposite of how professionals think. They expect to put a lot of work into their games.

It should read something like:
C3 is the most professional HTML5 game making tool for the Professional game maker. You need to stress that it's a "professional" tool. You want to attract more than just hobbyists? Making games easier and faster should be mentioned much lower down on the page.

First 3 questions should be answered in this order:

1. What is C3
2. What can it do?
3. Who is it for?
(Optional) How much?

Unless you guys disagree. It's just a suggestion.

Btw, Whoever you have designing these websites is doing a great job. Very clean and very easy to follow.

Thanks for the suggestions, ntoed. We agree we've been marketing from the wrong angle in the past. I think when you see the new site you'll agree it's a lot more confident in its approach.

@Tom Well, your MS Paint billboard got me back into using C2 after a year again, so you must have done something right!

That was a cute billboard. Honest too. The art is perfect for it. I like how it refers to bird games, bee games, etc. Exactly how a kid would think.

Quick question about the slogan, was "Build your imagination..." taken?

Hey, that could be a fun thread. Ask people what kind of slogans they can come up with for C3. Here's a few:

1. Construct 3 - Drag and drop your imagination into a game.
2. Construct 3 - 3 times the game making fun!
3. Construct 3 - The trifecta of game making
4. Construct 3 - Build the game of your dreams

I think that meme was an attempt at wit but failed. Seriously, Moot has a point about the slogan, but in the end I don't think a slogan on the website will sell it. It'll be the features, support and capabilities of both the engine and the devs that sell it.

I agree. I slogan probably won't sell it out right. It's a subconscious thing. Like a jingle. If it's good, people will remember it. I could probably rattle off a dozen slogans right now and sing even more jingles for different products. Sometimes slogans are more memorable than the actual product.

"We'll leave the light on for you." is a slogan, I think by some hotel business, but I can't remember which one. That slogan just sticks with me because I have family, and I leave the light on for them at night. It's simple, kind, and relatable.

Edit:
Looked it up. It's Motel 6. I think that's why I couldn't remember it. I purposely blocked it from memory. :?
