Formal statement regarding Construct

Dear community,

I mentioned that 0.94 would be released several days ago, at around this time. I will not renege on this, and 0.94 should be released later today. However, we have been in discussions with a large software company (Adobe) and I am pleased to announce we have agreed terms and Construct has been purchased outright for a 6 figure sum.

Adobe wish to take Construct into the online and Flash market, as a simpler development environment and with the aim of developing a stronger applications and professional market. I will not be on the development team unfortunately, but I hope my mentoring of Construct and the community is enough to see all our aims through.

I wish you all the best,

Ashley

Lol yeah, you almost got me there (you shifty bugger you ;)).

Ironically, the only thing going through my mind as I read that was "A six figure sum? Hot damn! Go Ashley!"


Edit: On a serious note, I had a sinking feeling when I started reading that. Just glad I realised the date halfway through :). I'm not the biggest fan of the idea of losing Ashley (Which would've been the real tragedy had this been true).
