Question about buying Construct

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Sep 16, 2016 7:11 pm

Hi,
Quick question (couldn't find an answer about it).
I understood that if you buy the Construct 2 full version you get updates for life.
But question is: will I get version 3 when it will come out?

Thanks

Only about 90% on this but you will not receive Construct 3 if you own a C2 license and I am guessing C3 will be more expensive to go along with its larger variety of features and I believe they mentioned a possible upgrade from C2 to C3 so you can get C3 at a reduced price.

I don't know how soon C3 will be here but we get very frequent updates on C2 and I still think it is the best $130 I have ever spent when I bought it a little over 2 years ago.

I am working on my first hopeful retail game right now but I have made probably 20 web games and prototypes.

Here is a time lapse video I did for a game jam where I made a game over a long weekend using construct and the link to play the game is in the video description. Overall spent maybe 18 hours making the game including time working on art and design.

This game is really cool :)
Did you ever had the doubt about Unity or Construct 2?

Construct 2 is vastly different than Unity or most game makers/engines that use more traditional coding. I can code but really enjoy putting the games together in Construct and outside of networked multiplayer (which is a challenge no matter how you do it) I haven't found anything I want to do that I haven't been able to figure out in Construct. The fun in using Construct 2 makes me a lot more productive than when I attempted to make games with other methods because it was an enjoyable experience.

Thats true. I had the same experience, if you don't want to work in the field as a coder so why break your head with heavy coding, rather then to enjoy building a nice prototype in no time.
but what do you think about exporting to other platforms? have you tried? phone/tablet etc?

You won't get C3 for free. But since it's a long way off, I suggest you don't wait for that to release. Go and buy C2 if you feel like it suits you. Give the free version a try:

Regarding Unity vs C2: In short, developing is much faster and more fun in C2 in my opinion. Search the forum, there has been numerous threads comparing the two engine. There you should find every answer for your questions regarding this topic. :)
