Yup subscription model. I'm not paying $100 a year for features I don't want.

Oh dear.

$2 a week for the full version? Its not that bad of a deal. You still get a free version.

Do we have to upgrade to Construct 3? Or we can still use Construct 2 (NW.JS, Cocoon, IntelXDK) ?

One of my favorite things about C2 was the one time fee. Everything is moving subscription based, so it is not too bad...It is a new version so I am OK with this.

What I am not OK with, is the browser based usage. Will C2 still be supported, if so for how long? I won't be using C3 if it is only browser based, I will stick with C2 until the last of days.

Scirra will be hemorrhoaging customers will this business model. Too bad, I really appreciated the generosity of how C2 was handled with all the frequent updates. A subscription model tho is the other end of the spectrum for me. I understand it's a business, we all have to eat. But I don't think this move will work out.

I don't see why I would pay any subscription fee for a game engine that still relies on 3rd part software to export to anything other than html5.

"A Construct 3 Personal subscription will be $99/year. This covers all export platforms."

Duh!

Everything that I hoped not to find was here. I'm very disappointed. I might buy to try it for the first year but since its browser based - I'm not very happy about that.

You keep your browser based app. I'm leaving. :x :x :x
I hate this, i regret using this in the first place. I am cancelling my game for this sh**.
I'm never going to visit this site ever again. I'm going Unity or GMS2.
