Edit 28032013: I've uploaded my examples and game source codes from the past few years as well, download it here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4714446/Jayjays%20Examples.zip

A while back Newton from PacktPub came on the forums looking for some people to help write a book on CC, I ended up going for it. Having nearly finished it, the book is going up for pre-order. I figured I'll mention it here since they have a sale going on this October, so it's a good time to check it out.

This book is to teach a total beginner the basics of making games in Construct Classic, as well as implement a few more difficult features like level saving/loading/editing.

I don't want to make this an advertisement, so if you're interested in knowing some more about it, you can take a look at the store page.

Thanks to Yann for being my reviewer

Edit: It's published now! - May 19th 2012

Free sample chapter (Chapter 2) is downloadable here

Although the chapter sample is black and white, I can confirm the eBook is in color.

There is also a color sample of a more advanced chapter in the article here

Also, the book is based on Construct Classic r1.2, but the example files will work with the latest Construct Classic R2 releaseJayjay2013-03-29 03:25:57

Congrats on finishing the book Jayjay.
Where can I find the review? I might buy the ebook version, but I'd like to quick scroll through few pages first or read the review.

Heh, I have about 3 chapters to go, but I think they're going to pre-release the chapters that are done with the ebook.

Unfortunately it hasn't been reviewed yet beyond the help Yann is giving me, but again that's because it's still finishing up. I'll see if they can do a few pages to read through.

Wow, cool thing.
A beginner's guide in this way will be very helpful. This must have been a complex work and I hope you get attention for it.


(shouldn't 'Scirra construct' be written 'Scirra Construct'? )
