Ease of a Text input game in Construct?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Mon Apr 09, 2012 7:40 pm

Before I get too heavily into this. I was wondering how easy or feasible it would be to make a TEXT game in Construct 2? I am looking to make a proof of concept simple 'Hacking' game using text input and text display over a static background.

Are there tutorials or resources I am missing?

Thanks ahead of time.

Globally you need to use the Text plugin to display the situation and the result of your action, the textbox plugin to input the actions, the array plugin to store all your text "database" and the webstorage plugin to store some informations about progression and your player locally.

A tutorial specificaly about text games hasn't been achieved, but you can find hopefully helpful examples and explanations of use of the arrays and webstorage in the How do I FAQ under the sections "Arrays", "Webstorage" but also "RPG genre" (especially the "Dialog" type examples).

I hope this gets you on track.

@Kyatric

Maybe use this thread instead for your "how do I FAQ"'s "User text (before EditBox) - LINK"?

At least, this thread helped me more.
