New releases and general discussions.

Post » Wed Oct 27, 2010 2:37 pm

Today is the 3rd birthday of Construct! We released the first public, open source version 0.8 on 27th October 2007. We've come on a long way :)

Fun stats:
64 total separate releases (about 1.7 releases a month)
236,667 total downloads to date at time of writing
2.8 TB total bandwidth of downloads
Construct 0.8 was downloaded 54 times in its first month of release :)

We're not going anywhere just yet so here's to another 3 birthdays :)

Also, Davo made a picture of a slightly weird looking halloween cake to celebrate, help yourself to a slice :):

Happy birthday construct!!! It's wierd, it feels like construct has been around forever, but i guess when i switched from MMF to construct, i just forgot about the many years of klick-products, so i guess that's messing with my sense of time.

It's wierd that when it comes to programs, the big brother is always the last born.

I almost read the title as "Construct 3" initially, lol. Happy birthday! I remember finding this way early (I think I was the 20th member on the forums) and my reaction of "WHOA AWESOME!" Construct is already basically the game creator I've been wanting my whole life, and C2 will be even better! Thanks devs for making it!

Huzzah to almost reaching 1.0! Onwards to Construct 2!

Awesome. Like Arima said, Construct is the ideal game creator (and programming tool) I've been searching for. The first time I stumbled onto the website I looked at the rainy ghost shooter and RTS tech demos and though to myself, "No way this has the ease of use of mmf2.". I was wrong. And that cake looks delicious. Purple chocolate cake with lime icing. Ash, Davo, (and Rich) you have changed the world for the better.

Wow, it has already been 3 years. From a blog post I know that it was about the 29th Oct 2007 when I first laid hands on Construct. And boy has it improved since! :D

Happy Birthday to Construct! And can't wait for 1.0... :P
