Can you make a game in 4 hours?

Post your Construct-made creations!

Post » Mon Feb 01, 2010 6:01 pm


I recently made an article about Constuct showing what you can do in just 4 hours. The point wasn't to show how easy programs such as Construct can be, but to show how intuitive and design-led they are.

Anyway the article shows a superfast time-lapse of the session with a download link of the atrocity which was created from it.

Hey, I'm in that video :)

Cool vid, man. Really interesting to see the whole process go whizzing by like that. Oh, and we used to have regular 1-hour compos here once a week, but people seemed to get burned out on them... maybe because it's so stressful on the system :P. Perhaps we should extend the limit to 2 hours and have them once a month or something...

Great vid and game! I noticed the weird errors with jumping, caused me to die several times. I tried shooting at the big blob at the end several times, then decided it was safe to run past him. oops!! It's a funny bug where you can still run around and shoot invisible. Nice for a 4 hour.

Haha cheers, yeah there's a funny bug where the guy (affectionately named Mega-Gimp) has the worst animation where he naturally hops in the air and if you try to jump mid-hop then you can't lol, we ran out of time so couldn't fix it.
