34 year old gamer here.

Over time I have had my hands on a C64, PC, XBOX, Xbox360, PS3 and now smartphones / HTML5. I have made a lot of unfinished games in tools ranging from BASIC to Game Maker, and I have several projects that I want to complete.

I am feeling a lot more confident about completing projects now I have found Construct2 :)

Absolutely love the process of making games. It's the combination of all my favorite hobbies; coding / game structure, graphics and sound.

Hello and salutations.

I'm a 3_ year old goof, three boys and a lovely wife. I've been gaming for years and love geeking out over some new whatnots. I'm a designer, developer, writer and overall just like a good story.

Scirra certainly has hit home for me with Construct. I used other SDK and have a game in the Apple market (Circus Big Pop Lite) using Corona SDK. ONce I started playing with Construct, the gloves came off.

I love imagining. My kids are extremely excited about what we're going to do with this (well, my two older boys .. the baby just likes to keyboard mash). My oldest boy (7) is even starting to create his own little games in Blender and wants to get into Construct as well.

I'm excited about where this is going and can't wait to produce my first games with Construct!

Hello,

My name is Jim and though I am not new to the the Software Industry (software developer for 25 years) I am new to the game making part of it.

Since the beginning of November I have been comparing most the game development engines that are available: Game Maker, Stencyl, Game Salad, Unity 3D, Construct 2 and a few others. What I decided on was Construct 2. This choice was made by trying to implement a couple of interesting concepts (Physics Based) that I want to incorporate in a game or two in ALL of the engines that I tried. In some engines it was not possible, in others it was possible but only with coding - not that I am afraid of coding, but these were pretty simple ideas. I was not only easily able to accomplish all of my tests in Construct 2, but the performance was far better than the other engines as well.

The balance of ease of use and performance and future development path is by far the best. I even asked a couple of my friends who have been in the game industry for years and they agree with the development path that Construct 2 has decided upon.

Between a buddy of mine that is the Graphic Artist/Genius and myself we have a lot of interesting ideas that we are planning on implementing in Construct 2 games. Most of which will have a very different look and feel from the games that you see now and some that will look familiar.

I hope to learn from all of you the tricks of the trade and maybe contribute a few of my own.

Construct seems like a great product and one which daydreaming, would-be game designers have been wishing for forever.

Thanks to the Scirra team, and happy New Year all!

Hey everyone! My name is Chris, and I mostly work with graphic design and websites currently, but I'm considering making games for full time. I'm really happy I found CC2, so I can start creating my ideas for real.
