Hi there,

My Name is Detlef, and I am from Germany. My first Computer was an Sinclair ZX81 followd by an Texas Instruments IT99/4A who was replaced by the legendary C64. Here my passion for computer games did start. I had the Chance to work as Gametester and digital Grafik Designer 1988 for the C64 Disc Magazine "Digital News". After moving to the Amiga 500 and Amiga 2000 I could make a dream come true an work on several "low Budget" Games on the Amiga as Game- and Grafikdesigner.

In the early 90s I started working as Graphic Designer for smaler Advertising Agencys and get in contact with Macromind Director. I startet to develope Multimedia CD-ROMs for any kind of Promotion - later I moved to Macromedia Flash as an Developer and helped to translate Flash 2 into German speach. I could create some very small games with DirectorMX and Flash.

I love Computergames. I Own several Consoles (all Playstations and Xboxes) and a lot of PC games. Since the early days on C64/Amiga I dream of developing games myself. I programm in C# and VisualBasic some other languages but I couldnt get a game to work. Since a long time I try every Gameeditor but C2 is the first one that fits perfectly to my demands. I already did some tutorials and currently I work on a prototype for a game Id like to develope since 20 Years. Currently Im on the FreeEdition but this week I will buy the PersonalEditon and start my Project.

Have Fun!
Detlef

Hi, my name is Roman. I'm just a hobbiest who enjoys programming. I started programming back in the 90's. I started with Basic, move to Visual Basic and then C. I discovered back them DIV Games Studio which opened the video game programming world for me. Now I'm trying to learn Java, and looking around the web I found Construct 2, which brought me back to video game programming. I hope I can learn and have a great time around here. Thanks.

Hi forum, I'm Kevin, a student waiting to transfer to Elmhurst College and one who wants to work with HTML5 to make games for genuine enjoyment, and one day a fully-fledged MMO.

I've been creating ideas of my own for a long time now, and I constantly have design ideas for new games, and new takes on games, often intertwined with storylines.

I can't wait until I can get the personal license and knock out some basic games and work my way towards professional design and coding!

Hi, I'm Corey. I used to be a web developer/graphic desinger a couple of years ago and I have always messed around with game development and I thought I would look into HTML5 for a full scope game. I have been using javascript on and off for the past 8 years and in my long search to find a nice engine/framework I came across Construct 2 and loved how quickly you could get ideas down and playable, and also how extensible it can be.

I tested the free version for about half a year and then finally bought a license when I started to run into limitations. I have been developing a cross-platform game for the past couple months and I have loved every moment of it.

The documentation is wonderful and the Javascript sdk has allowed me to implement multiple custom plugins, some of which I will release once I have completed my current project. It's crazy how easy it is to throw a prototype together and it really speeds up development. I'll probably never go back to developing purely in Javascript.

Keep it up Scirra! Looking forward to updates and new features.

Hi everybody! My name is Nurzhan, I'm from Kazakhstan. My age is 14, I am a school student. We don't speak English here, but I try to study it really hard. I love studying gamedesigning and stuff, so I found Construct. I am happy, as it is a very, very good beginning for me. I am working for my project now, it is based on my YouTube channel character, who loves chocolate very much. I want to make it spectacular, because I love my viewers and want to make them happy!
At first I was having some troubles with purchasing Construct, but Tom helped me out. Thanks a lot

So, thanks for your attention, bye
From Kazakhstan with love

Hi there, this is to introduce myself.
I'm a rusty developer from Guayaquil, Ecuador and I'd like to start coding/designing games (26 years old).
I've been working in management, but I want to start coding again.
I'm doing some basic stuff in cinder/webGL/processing and would like to learn game development.
I think construct is a great route for starters, and I was wondering if there were any demos or resources to boost my learning curve.
Thanks!
David
