kodu and construct actually have a bit of history.
many moons ago there was a great battle with an evil kodu ambassador.
in the end it turned out he was just misunderstood.
but I will place this link here in memory of those who lost their sanity during those trying times, lest we forget:

Kodu is aimed at kids. It looks cool, but the event system is definitely a lot simpler, a bit like Popfly's event system was. I think Construct is a viable development tool, whereas Kodu looks more like an educational/entertainment thing.

A friends 5yr old daughter saw Kodu once, and said "Eiww, that's for babies!". Best review ever lol.

Thanks lucid, I've read most of the thread.
Strange the topic got locked.
It would be better, if there was an urge to lock the topic, to ask the topic starter: is it ok to close this topic, because <reason>?

It's not so strange. It got locked because people wouldn't stop bickering.

No... just no, moderating doesn't work that way.

Giving me permission to lock it just took all the fun away...

Screw you guys, I'm going to watch porn or something.
