Dark Flow... Construct's evil twin?

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

I was randomly wondering the internet... only to find this. Not entirely sure what to make of it. It seems to actually relate more to Game Maker than Construct, but it still has support for HTML5... and the logo...

http://darkflow.net/

Haven't actually tried it yet. Has anyone messed about with it before?

This app is like a game maker meets construct 2 hybrid.The best thing is that it can export to multiple formats including exe files

Looks more like a GameMaker alternative. There are alternatives to Construct as well... have you seen Game Develop?

This is why I love Scirra. I have never seen another developer who not only promotes discussion of the competitors on their forums, but also provides links to their products. Confidence FTW!

One off the many reasons why i will never use another 2d game maker.Ashley's comment has convinced me to save up for Construct 2.Scirra , Humble yet asskickingly bad ass at the same time.

Game Develop looks 80% like C2 LOL! Probably using the same software/language to build the engine.

Lots of html5 game makers popping up these days :) There's an alien twin too: Tuloloo. They'll keep coming since HTML5 is trend. None of them comes even near of C2 of course . Even Game Maker.
Tuloloo supports direct JS scripting though so that's a plus for programmers alike.Kiyoshi2012-03-23 02:46:26

As are others, I applaud your ability to refer to competitors. Awesome, Ashley! I think there's room enough for many players.

I will look at Game Develop, but I'm intrigued to see they support Ubuntu. Wow! Humble Bundle, and all that! There are days I just want to live in a Linux world. Maybe if I wait long enough, I will. About the time that Linux and Android converge ... wait, they just did that on the kernel level.

Anyway, I'll check out Game Develop on Ubuntu.

PS: I noticed this figure on the front page of Game Develop. Wasn't this similar to the Classic Construct RPG game characters?
