Construct 2 To Expensive!

Chat about anything not covered in these forums, but keep it civil!

Though C2 is inexpensive compared to it's competitors, keep in mind that Stalker247 is talking about the currency conversion rate - the south african rand (zar) is worth a tenth what a dollar is worth - so in this case, as he mentioned, it would be like people in the US paying over a thousand bucks for it, which is significant! It's not so audacious or insulting when you think of it that way. People in countries with currencies that are less valuable have to deal with this sort of thing often. It's difficult to justify buying something when the money could feed your entire family for months.Arima2013-07-02 23:15:08

@arima

Thanks for the extra info - that certainly puts things into perspective! Given the choice between making a game, or having a few months of meals, I think I'd probably go with the latter.

Pesky exchange rate!

You can use free edition to host in chrome store, some portal games which support html5 and they offer ads, then buy C2. Make simple games with 100 events you could earn little profit.

But that's against the terms of using the free version of C2 and they would have to buy it.

You are absolutly right there Arima, I am a 17 year old student and you just don't get 119 dollars... you will keep saving and keep saving.

1 dollar = about 10 ZAR with that I can buy myself a 2lr drink and a loaf of bread...

Totally agree. Back in the day when I was younger kid and living in my mother country Poland there was no other way then piracy to get any kind of software for me. Prices were extremely high for market over there.
