Scirra has no control over whether Steam give a discount or not.

*** Update ***

Have been informed by Alspal that:

Developers can now set their own dates for sales/discounts, if they desire to do so.

If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Also, you're better off buying Construct here, instead of on steam.

I thought this, but had no real reasoning for it.
Why do you say that?

Scirra has no control over whether Steam give a discount or not.

True and untrue.
ValvE CAN make sales which Scirra doesn't have much control over.
But, Scirra in fact can make a sale and set the discount themselves.

Also, i own the Steam version.
Here a quick comparison with pro's and cons (Compared to normal version) after 400 hours of use:
Pros:
- Auto-Update
- No fiddeling with license files
- Timer Tracker
Cons:
errrr, brains?

No, honestly, i've said it again and again and i will qoute Ashley on this one.
The Steam version is NOT worse then the normal one, i can only recommend buying the Steam one.
There is no difference, other than the Steam version like all other products from Steam is tied to your Steam account and cannot run unless Steam is also running. On the other hand the standalone version can be used portably.

And some that bought it over Steam contacted Scirra and got a license for the standalone, so in the end you are not limited when buying over steam.
I got it for 50% off, and i would always buy it again over Steam.

Yeah, well, Steam gets on my nerves...

To each his own, I suppose!
