Kayin, the creator of I wanna be the Guy, started work on a new game, and he was developing it in Construct.

I was interested in developing a game, and construct sounded great.

I tried out Gamemaker and there were some things that I liked, but my dislikes outweighed them.

I did a search for game making programs and I found Stencyl, which seemed like it had some promise, but their "stealth mode" :roll: pretty much killed any enthusiasm that I had for the project.

So I did some more google searches for game making programs and eventually I found Construct. Honestly, I didn't have much hope for it since I had never heard anyone in any forums even mention it before.

I was very pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to get started with the learning process, and the fact that it had hardware acceleration from the beginning was a huge plus.

I was really sold with Construct's awesome community of knowledgeable and helpful (and funny) people, though. :wink:

I've been making slow progress with my first serious attempt at a game (inspired by Puzzle Bobble) but hopefully I'll have it ready by next month. I really want to contribute something worthwhile to the site. :)

Someone posted a pic very similar to this in the clickteam forums:



Then I went to google.

I was browsing mfgg (I'm Failman) and some guy posted about it so I tried it, but didn't really understand it. Later (waaay, waaay waaaay later), I was working on the art for the game I'm working on (but not programming) and remembered it.
