Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Do anyone think a game can work without graphics at all ?

I'm thinking of a farming game, not with trucks and such lol..

Nono, gold farming game, where you buy slaves and such to mine different materials to sell em, and get gold ^^

Well then yeah, it can work... there are tons of text-adventures and other funny text-based stuff from the beginning of computer gaming.

Hackrun is a pretty new game that uses text-only and it´s more than great fun :)

Yes, it could be done quite simply. I've never heard of A Dark Room before but I love text adventures! Playing A Dark Room now and it's quite fun, a bit different to traditional text adventures but not too much, just simplified. I'll have to try making one, might put up a tutorial as well when done.

On Construct 2, the "non-graphics" would actually be turned into sprites... which makes them graphics, right? :)

Well doesn't really matter, it's just text all over anyway ^^

It does matter, in the sense that it won't be actual text, but images of text. It's just not the same :P
