Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Feb 04, 2014 12:52 am

Hi guys and gals,

I go to college for web design and development and got turned on to Construct 2 from a game major friend and I got to admit I like what I see so far.

I was wondering if there are any things I should know before I jump in. Are there any tools or resources out there that are MUST haves?

Thanks for your time and hope to talk to you soon!

nope, just start doing some beginner tutorials and you'll be good. Then when you get a little comfortable try to make a small game. Rinse and repeat... have fun..

While it's not a must have, Spriter is really a fantastic compliment to C2. Not only does it make life super easy for your animators, but saves you a whole bunch of time and effort when it comes to importing and using animations.

So while it's not in any way integral, I highly recommend you check it out!

And just like coding in other languages, Skittles and Mountain Dew go a long way on late nights.

Just don't feed the trolls...give them fuzzy logic and they'll feed themselves...
Don't lose your work. Backup your game with Dropbox.

Hello Vaidher

I have been using C2 for not too long now, and this is what helped me got started.

The manual and tutorials are a wonderful place to start as Jobel has mentioned. There are many video tutorials as well, which should help you get familiar even faster. Also look for a set of video tutorial from Yann and Kyatric. It is really a fantastic set of videos that will help you get to understand most of C2's functions and how it works, while still being entertaining!
