Hi everyone, I'm very new to Construct 2 and have downloaded the trial, it's very different to what I'm used to which is the RPG Maker games.
I'm not sure if this is the topic to begin introductions so i'll apologies in advance for that :)

A little about me:
I'm a spriter and artist and bit of a game developer as I'm working with an RPG Maker Game- as a side hobby I participate in sprite comic role playing and drawing and the occasional gaming.

To get started I suppose working on a starter kit would be the best place to start to understand the program.
How do we do?

@ Skurge welcome to the Scirra community dude I love RPG games! But personally I'm better at coding platform games :D good luck in your game making and try out Construct 3 aswell. Try my recent game out and see what you think https://www.scirra.com/arcade/puzzle-ga ... anic-19003

Hello sorry for the late response! I've got work off today so I'm able to start a few beginnings on things.
I've played your little demo- very nice! Reminds me of those old SNES games where the levels would rotate. I love platform games and always wanted to make an awesome platform-shooter but never had the brains to do it. I will try construct 3 but I don't see it on steam anywhere?

Do you know if there are early made project files available to build off with Construct also? I usually find myself able to learn better of pre-built projects as a beginner.

Construct 3 actually runs in your browser try it out here https://www.construct.net/gb. Yes both construt 2 and construct 3 come with a wide range of game demos. To access the on construct 2 When you create a new game and you can choose the type of layout etc scroll down and you will see lots of game examples and then open one of them.

Ah I see now, I'll have a look at these example demos, who do you recommend to watch/learn from regarding developing platformed games?
I notice that alot of game exe's seem to be browser playable- does that mean that construct does not deploy into there own thing?
