MACPK wrote:Well done! Really nice little podcast. It is always nice to hear some background info about the developers behind the games. I have been developing with c2 for two years now and I had all the pains you talked about as well (trigger, bullets, ios, ...).

I want to underline that people should start making games for fun. It is a lot of work to get everything done even with a small game (code, grafics, ux, signing, app store details, translations,...) and even if you get a quite nice game done the app store competition is really hard. I mean it is nice to dream about creating the next flappy bird but people shouldn't start with the monetization strategy without having anything playable.

Starting with the tutorials and to ask the forum if you get suck is good advice. When I started using c2 I got very frustated first but then very addicted to it because it is not hard to solve the basic problems and to learn fast (I had a lot of little success moments with it). I also think c2 itself is acually a nice game in that case. Even if you don't want to create a game it is amazing to figure out new plugins, behaviours and methods. And scirra is releasing like every 1-3 weeks a new version. In times of spam I love to recieve a release note via email about a new version ^^.


Totally. Making games should be, to some extent, a fun experience. And I also agree on the idea that Construct 2 becomes its own game, with challenges and problems to solve in order to make a fun game in the end. Release notes are the best emails I get usually, too.

Just wanted to pop in and say I really enjoyed it! It was a good discussion, easy to follow, and had some great things brought up. I like the open discussion format, though a little more structure can help. I look forward to hearing how you guys do with guests!

I just finished listening to the podcast and can't wait to hear more. This has actually helped me know a little bit more of what to expect from this software and I know now to avoid mobile development until I have the fundamentals down. Thank you putting forth the effort to make the Construct 2 experience that much more amazing.
