Does anyone buy the extended license?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

I was just wondering.
It seems the recent sale on business licenses has drawn some attention.

But who earns enough money using C2 games to need the business license? I know about 1 or 2 successful titles but that's about it. Where are the others?

And how do you earn a couple of $1000s with these games?

Hooowwww

Don't forget it's not just for indies who have made $5000 USD - if you want to use it in a for-profit organisation, you also need a business license.Ashley2013-10-30 11:47:00

Ah, OK. That makes sense.
Anyway I certainly hope I will have to purchase the business license one day.

How is difficult to answer. But check out Game Academy, they teach you how, but not everyone makes money. This is life. Folks have made 100's of thousands using inferior tools to C2, others have failed misribly using top end tool sets like unitiy3d.

Its the market. Its the game concept. Its the audience. Its timing. Its marketing. Its ...
Very very long list.

As for getting business license, I just started my own (Pty)ltd and I am not a personal anymore lol, so according to licensing, i need to purchase business license. The timing for discount was a bonus. So its that simple. DUTOIT2013-10-30 12:27:42

We have to use a business license, but were fortunate enough to win one :)

I've got one, my game's got a publisher and as soon as I got some money I bought it. Really cheap too, there was a sale going on at the time.

I own the business license as I have made over the $5000 with C2. I purchased it at one of the 50 percent off upgrade deals a while back.

To answer your how.

Ads on Google Play games
Sales on iOS games
Ads on Windows 8 games
Non exclusive license sales to publishers.

There are lots of ways to make money with HTML5 games :).

I've said it before. C2 makes it extremely easy to make games. However, there is a lot more that goes into making games that earn money than just the ability to make a game.ArcadEd2013-11-03 00:22:09

@ArcaEd Wow you're an inspiration. These are pretty much standard ways of earning money with apps -- but it's good to know they sometimes work if done right. I'll certainly have a look at your games!
