I am a GameMaker user. I have read the news about Construct 2 on GameMaker Blog:
I have downloaded the Construct 2 free version and tried it. I think that Construct 2 is a good game making software...SURE!!! Many people think that GM HTML5 version is too expensive: (I agree.)
I believe that many GM users will start to consider to user Construct 2 for making HTML5 games. Why? There is a free version of Construct 2. In addition, many amateur indie game developers can afford USD65 for the indie version.
Now I have two suggestions:
1. The demand of HTML5 exporter is actually not so high. I believe that the demand of EXE exporter is much much higher. Moreover, a lot of indie game developers also want Android exporter and IOS exporter. Yes.....they want to get rich in these two markets. The successful story of Angry Birds make many many indie game developers develop games for these two markets. Actually, the demand of SWF exporter is also high. There are so many flash game websites and many indie game developers are making money with flash games from these websites. In conclusion, I really hope that SWF, IOS, Android and EXE exports will be released in the near future. Thanks.
2. If Construct 2 wants to compete with GameMaker, detailed official tutorials for different types of games in PDF format are really necessary. Many beginners really need them. Please download GM's official tutorials and you will know what I mean:
GM's official tutorials also show people that GM is a suitable tool for making many types of games. These tutorials show the capability of GameMaker.
I also hope that a single PDF file for things of Construct 2 will be provided for Construct 2 users. It will really help beginners because all things about Construct 2 can be searched in this PDF file. This is GM's documentation PDF file:
Finally, I hope that Construct 2 will be a very popular and successful game making software for different platforms in the future...yes..!
