I was in the process of trying to learn HTML5, CSS3, js, and jquery (since they all kinda go together). To help in my learning process I started following js and html5 game tute's on youtube. I found a C2 tutorial on youtube and decided to take C2 for a spin. The first day I downloaded it, I wound up so intrigued and excited, that I stayed up throughout the entire night that evening! Wow this program is so cool!
Oh and those event sheet examples earlier in this thread with the gals overlapping each other were hysterical!!!! Wow you guys make huge huge funny! Loved it.

Construct is one of those pieces of software that I follow and even put a bit of money into because I like what the developers are doing, not because I actually use it all that much (the other notable example probably being Blender -- I must be the Blender community's longest-standing, least knowledgeable lurker).

A while ago ago I saw an indie dev (can't remember who) prototyping the tiniest little games in Construct, shortly before C2. Nothing special, nothing big, but there was a lot of output. I thought that would be a good way to practise. Lots of tiny little games.

My intentions were good, but I haven't really found the time for a while now. When C2 came along, I eventually got licence, just in case I ever did find the time and because I thought it was a cool endeavour. Lately things have opened for me at work, so... here I am, trying to learn and engage :)

Super psyched for R100 on a number of levels.

I was essentially looking for an alternative to GameMaker 8.1. I was researching the newest GameMaker Studio and was turned off by the high prices of the individual exporter modules. I was about ready to just give the base package a go anyways, but I decided to Google some GameMaker alternatives. So, that's how I stumbled upon this wonderful Gem, Construct 2.

I gave the free version a go for a few days and then snagged up an official license and I look forward to playing around with it more. I'll start with recreating a game I made in GameMaker to really get a feel for it. I like this software's style and the way the developers are supporting it and the HTML 5 platform, so thanks for making it!
