[QUOTE=Trevor10] [QUOTE=jbadams] Have you tried out the free version?
Are you happy with how the software works, and what it's able to do?
[/QUOTE]
Agreed. Spend a few weeks with the free version first. You won't hit its limitations while you are still learning.[/QUOTE]

I'm pretty sure I know enough of construct to be able to make an adequate game..

[QUOTE=briggybros]Would starting a html5 gaming website be a good source of income for my games[/QUOTE]

Yes, creating your own HTML5 gaming website is certainly one potentially good way of making some money from your games.


Advantages include having total control over both the games and website, not having to share the income as you typically would with a portal (where you usually get x% of any money made), and not having to share the site with other games unless you choose to do so.

Potential disadvantages are that you'll need to host the site yourself, you'll need to work hard to gain an audience (popular portals already have a massive player-base), and you'll be doing all the work yourself -- any problems with the website will be your job, as well as making and maintaining the games, marketing, implementing monetization, etc.


I would normally suggest a hybrid approach where you host games on your own website and submit to popular portals such as Kongregate. Mobile platforms (iOS, Android) can also be a good potential market, although for more complex games performance can currently be a significant issue -- this will only get better with time however.


Hope that's helpful!

I defiantly think it is worth it because if you start to make good games and you successfully sell them then you will probably get the 50$ back sooner or later. Also it is only one payment for the license and that's not a lot of cash.

Good call, Briggy! If you read this article (was linked earlier), I think you'll find good evidence that HTML5 is definitely the future. :)
