No! Its just for hobbiests and wanna be programmers :)Notion Games Isn't making money and these guys are never going to make any money

Both are fantastic examples of what is achievable.

@Arcaded, Thank you for this case study ! Very instructive.
And for the original question, like others said, i too think that its more about the games, and not the program used to make it... But, you can already find some good looking games on steam built with Construct2, so i guess some people are making money from it.

@Arcaded
Thanks for the info.
I don't know why people are so scared to show any proof that they have made money. it's not like anyone is going to steal your credit card number.
I mean. If you have something in the app store why would you NOT want to share that? If you've made money why would you NOT want to let people know? heck, if I made even $2.00 I would be jumping for joy and letting everyone know about it.
All I'm asking is if there is anyone willing to show proof that they've made money with this program. You act as if I'm raping your daughter or something.
and yes, if you can't show any proof then my only conclusion if you say you have made money is that you are not being truthful.
you guys say that it's about the game, not about the program. Well of course it's about the game. Just show me the game you've made money with. that's all I'm really asking.speedstr2014-02-13 13:43:24

@speedstr,

Check out kickstarter - see the funding for those games and that should give you a good idea of money being made.

These guys are going to make a killing Reven
And this is done on Construct 2 as far as I understand.

There are tons of games on kickstarter, and sure most are not using construct 2, but they could have been made using construct 2.

umm. yea, everyone that has replied except Arcaded have given examples of someone else supposedly making money. Doesn't anyone have their own examples?

I really didn't think this was going to be such a hard question and was not meant to be taken as an insult.

i was kind of expecting a ton of people excited enough to show their progress but it seems everyone is on the defense.

A lot of folks here design games for other people.
Here is one example of a reason no one is jumping on your band wagon.

My dad worked for a company that supplied a workforce to companies.
The one director of the company my dad worked for, worked out that it was cheaper to rent a helicopter and do 10 meetings a day, vs driving all day and only doing 2.

When time for contract renewal came, no one renewed their business dealings with the company, because "they were obviously making so much money" flying in on helicopters etc

There are tons of guru's willing to share last months income, and they will even teach you their formula so you can do the same.

Folks here care only about making a living. We don't make huge $$$, we get to spend time with our family, provide enough to be comfortable, and when our kids are sick, we can look after them because we have flexible hours.DUTOIT2014-02-13 14:10:21

yea, that really wasn't helpful at all.
ok. I get it. No one ( well, almost no one) wants to show that they've made any money using construct2 even though they have said they've made money. i was sort of hoping for a webpage, facebook page, app store statistic or something. I get it....sort of.speedstr2014-02-13 14:23:14

Wow, you're special needs - lol.
Both examples I linked to are real folks who are here in these forums. Ubie land is amazing, it is being put onto all the platforms, I think it is on its way to steam, if not already. Everyone who is into html 5 knows about that game. It is in the same class as cut the rope.
That example was of what has been done, and is continuing to grow.

The other example was to show you what is about to be done. I followed ubie land and learned so much. I gave reven as an example so you could follow that.

These are real people with real success and they haven't the time to prove anything to you.

If you want inspiration - go find a self proclaimed guru, if you want education, stick around the forums. Good people here.

The Choice is yours.


Sidenote: Homework assignment. Get your own stats, websites, find those games in the appstore. Join http://www.html5gamedevs.com/ and all the other game dev sites.
A lot of folks are doing well with kids games, go look into that.
That way you don't have to take anyone's word for it.

Well I guess you can just try it, and see.
If you can't see the value in the free version, then perhaps you are blind, and this(troll) bridge should be burned.
