I do web design on the side, and one day I was thinking what could be done with HTML 5's canvas and the like. Was surfing around and found out about you guys. Never had I once been this impressed by a game engine. I've only been here for about week or two. But I love it.

I'd been trying to find a good program to make games with for quite some time, jumping from one to another every month or so. Eventually I just stumbled upon Construct (back in the Classic days)... as soon as I tried it out I deleted the other programs from my computer, thinking, "welp, ain't gonna need those anymore. This is it."

I was very interested in doing a web-based game, and GM was way behind. One google-fu later and I found C2, and I'll never go back.
Don't see the fnords and they won't eat you!

I started using The Games Factory, then Multimedia Fusion and MMF2. I heard something about construct and downloaded it, but didn't work on my computer back then. A few years later i bought a new computer and one day I remembered trying Construct so I decided trying it again. And it worked! 3 days later I used it for Ludum Dare #19 and it was a success

I was browsing SFGHQ years ago, and saw mention of construct. At the time, the SFGHQ community was using MMF almost exclusively (as was I), but I still decided to check it out. Construct was OK, but I didn't really pick it up. Some time had passed, and I saw mention of it again, so I checked it out again. This time, I stuck to it and really learned it. This was also about the time I created my forum account. (Man the site has changed since then :D)

From then, I have been checking up on Scirra's work about twice a week, and have been excited to see how far it's come. I have only dabbled in C2, but I hope it grows into something as amazing as CC did.kaos2012-01-06 23:27:17

A staff member on toribash.com posted about it.
I checked it out. Used CC from there.
And when C2 began to be discussed, it caught my attention, I saw the potential.
The very first public release did not hook me that much (it wasn't particulary featured truth be told ^^).
But quickly after, as it was getting more and more featured at an incredible pace (a matter of months with releases each couple of days at some points) I totaly went to use it in priority and became more involved in the community.

In my eyes C2 is superior to CC. It's subjective and mostly a matter of taste, but just consider the way you use variables in expressions in C2 compared to CC. No more tedious global or value arrays. Haaaaaaaa
^^

I still have a lot of appreciation and respect for CC though, as I learned such a great deal from it and it really paved the way for the fantastic tool that C2 is now.
I'm also expecting the soon to be released next version of CC.
I think its users will be thrilled and it will shut some of the rumors of CC being abandonned.
New to Construct ? Where to start
