Hello Everyone.

My name is Ed Farias. I'm a network admin by day, and father/husband by night :). I own a company called Arcade-in-a-Box, and it's been over many transformations over the years. From early on building retro arcade style control panels, then custom arcade sticks for ps3/360 for fighting games.

I also opened up a game center/arcade where I restore classic arcade cabinets. I have a deep love for classic arcade titles from the 80s, so me an some friends created a web series on youtube called Retro Rumble. It's kind of a game show base on classic arcade games.

I have always had a desire to build my own games, and I have been programming since very young in basic, and then onto Visual Basic and not VB 2010. However, it't not a great gaming platform so I started messing with Gamemaker and rpg maker several years ago, but I never finished anything.

Something is different with Construct 2, and I love it.

Thanks for the amazing program and affordable prices.

Hi I'm Shilme :)

I have been interested in learning how to make games for a while now but never found something that worked for me (I really don't have time to learn how to go from ascii art to fancy graphics and thats how most basics tutorials look to me) but I found this and its super intuitive so I decided to join the community and get decent at making games.

I hope that I can make a super awsome frustrating fun platformer and thats what I am working on right now :)

C++
JAVA
C
C#
AS3
AS2

Hi everyone!

I've been here for a while, but now I'm finally got here to introduce myself .

I'm an university student in Hungary. I started game development about when I was 14 (with GameMaker 4.3). Then I had a .. well we can say a longer break in the game developing (I was mainly interested in webpage designs).

If I remember well, I was using GameMaker 7 when I saw the blog post on GameMakerBlog about Construct. I tested it and played around a little, but it didn't got me. It was later that I gave it an other try, and the opennes and freedom made me love it. I never developed anything serious with GM or Construct, but they made me love the game making process and today I believe I can make my game dreams come true even if I don't know programming.

I first tried Construct 2 in the early times. It's funny, the zooming effect on the layer editor made me love it. Later I bought it as an early adopter (after some more testing).

Since then I tried GameMaker 8.1 and now the Studio, tested Stencyl, but they all missing something that Construct 2 has. I believe (other then the great software) it's the openness and freedome provided to the users (for example: I bought it and I'll have the future updates too, and I can install it as many times as I want on my PC, the Scirra Team is awesome, they are open and friendly to the community). As far as it stays that way, C2 will be always the best

Thank your for reading.

Hey, I gues it's about time. My name is Adam Prack, and this is my 100th post. I suppose it's as good a time as any to introduce myself. I started making games as a hobby on RPG Maker, though I had a heavy emphasis on fancy graphics so you probably would've never known I used RM. Then, I discovered Construct and have been hooked ever since.

I'm currently developing Blight using CC and have an alpha release on August 3rd. I'm so very grateful to have such a flexible, powerful tool to work with. Here's hoping sales go well! I have some preorders already, at least!

Hello, "Constructors". I started using this software recently. I'm realising how powerful and easy to use it is. It's great. I hope to enjoy creating interesting games as you do...

Hi guys.

Just started playing with C2 a couple of weeks back.
Been also checking the forums for a couple a weeks.

Looks like it is a nica community here.
Hope you have the patience for my "noob" questions.

See you around guys.

Hey all -- I'm a video game enthusiast looking to make my first game. I thought HTML5 would be a great start, so poking around for engines brought me to Construct 2. The licensing terms seem fair and that makes for a very easy relationship with the developers.

I am using the free version right now to make sure I know what I'm doing, but I'm a programmer by education and some profession. I'm not sure how much of that I will use here (probably not much) but I also like to build things and so this should go swimmingly.

Hello! I've been working with construct for a couple of weeks now, alongside a couple of teammates. We're working to officially incorporate and turn our project into an actual company, which is both exciting and scary! Construct is able to do exactly what we need it to, and the community here seemed too good to pass up. :)
