you can earn some money with a free version of construct 2,
could be advertising, or what alternatives there are if I develop a quality game.

i don't know if you can get money from free version but remember the game will not be that much because it is only has 100 (events+gruop+global)...
and most of the game need about 200+ events to fix all bugs and has some new ideas

If you want to make money of your games, you need to have a Personal or Business license.

The free version doesn't allow you to make a commercial use.

@glerikud: Of course.
You're making money thanks to the traffic to the game.
It's a commercial use.

Think of it like an investment, if you've put down money for the product you're much more likely to make a real go of your work; not to mention have a bit of motivation for making some possible revenue.

Frankly I'm amazed Scirra not only offer a free version of Construct 2, but also how fully featured it is: A 100 event limit and the exclusion of families barely dents the stupendous creative potential within the program; this reason alone was the reason I put down the cash for the product, very impressed with the quality up front and wanted to support.

As for the price... I can't really empathise, at 50 that's just over a days work for even the lowest paid job, and in comparison with the price of similar software, mindblowing. Even student versions of popular software can still cost triple figures, the price is bargain.

An interesting route might be a freeium version of Construct 2, where you pay to unlock features like famalies and event limits, but at the lower levels any money you make with your games generates a cut for Scirra; from what I've seen I can't see them running with the idea, but it's one I'd fully support.

IMHO I like a product that gives me all the features when I pay for it. And I love the freedome they offer. If they stick into the created games.. well, it wouldn't be so good. See the opposite example: Stencyl. They have subscription licenses and the free version puts their logo into the game. I don't like subscription offers when I'm about to express my creativity. I want a software that is good and ready for me at all the time.

But, back to the topic, yes I recommend buying C2 too. Looking on it as an investment is a good idea, because when you get some experience making software with it, you can make serious money.
