Will I be able to use the free edition of Construct 2 for commercial use?
Thank you.

How would the creators make any money if the free edition could be used commercially? I would think that if you intend to commercialize a product, you would need the commercial license.

No, the free edition won't be for commercial use. If you're making money from using Construct 2 though, why not buy a license?! :P

According to the page you need the standard edition to release commercially, and the business version if you make more than $5000 with your game.

You can release commercially with the Standard edition, then just upgrade to the business license once you've made $5000 (which would be a pretty good point to have reached, right?). What's wrong with that?Ashley2011-08-22 20:47:17

I don't get it. I mean, how much enjoyment has both CC and C2 provided? Much more than a standard game would give. So paying a measly 20 quid to support these guys should be a no-brainer.

*sigh^

Might consider something between the free/non commercial, and indie.
That 100 events limit...kinda harsh.

The Space Blaster demo is only 70 events, and that's a reasonably complex game with some effects and such. You could go even further than that with the free edition. I think it's reasonable since you can make games like that in it, it's not some simple toy game!
