My favorite part about subscriptions

Post » Tue Apr 04, 2017 5:18 pm

I know that it is a sensitive topic but a lot of other companies are switching to the subscription model. When Photoshop and Illustrator came out with a subscription, I was hesitant, especially at 50 dollars a month. However, looking back, I actually love the subscription model.

It's easier to update and there is always something new feature that comes along that makes it worth it.

For 99 dollars a year that about 8 dollars a month or 27 cents a day. I know that can be a lot of money in some areas but if you live in the developed world it really isn't that much money. Chances are you spend more on pizza than software. At 8 dollars a month it's cheaper than a photoshop license (19/mo).

After working with the alpha, C3 is totally worth every penny. I look forward to the full version. It will be the easiest way to get your idea out there for the least amount of effort.

I agree mammoth. I waste way more than 8 dollars a month on stupid stuff. Plus you know you are supporting the company to where they can pump out more updates. I think some people need to get over the fact that C2 is NOT gamemaker and it is NOT Unity or Unreal. Being able to hop on to whatever computer to make changes is super nice.

It not working with iOS on the other hand...ugh

That's the part that worries me, just search "USD COP" in google. However I am still considering the subscription when I see any significant change in C3 over C2, I mean, they have made an amazing job porting C2 to a browser and improve some details but I was expecting something that blow my mind, anyway it will be really hard to find a great event system like construct have anywhere.

I have a question, I don't know if that was answered before, If I find C3 would be good for me in 1, 2 or more years, I will have the discount for having a C2 license by that time?

@DARKEASC I believe I read that the discount starts whenever you decide to activate C3 and you are allowed to wait before activating.

I hate subscriptions because of the commitment. If I want to take a break from using Construct 3, then I have to decide whether to cancel my subscription or keep paying for something I won't be using for another year or two. (Yes, I'm to that point in my life where I measure activities and commitments in years.)

On the other hand, I love that a subscription finances further development on a product I love. From what I've seen so far, I'm definitely subscribing to Construct 3 as soon as it is open for subscriptions. If I decide to to take a break, I'll have to swallow hard and cancel my subscription.

We're aware that $99 is affordable in some countries, and completely unaffordable in others. The payment system we're building is pretty sophisticated and will allow us to trial different subscription prices/billing periods in different regions. We're not launching with different pricing in different regions, but it's something we're capable of, and definitely looking to review on a region-by-region basis in the future.
