Hi all! I'm Immanuela and I started making games a couple of months ago.
My main motivation was when I entered a Game store and there was lots of advertising for the new OUYA console. When I read that players could develop their own games for it, I considered the idea of making my own game.
I started on Java and Eclipse and finished my first game. The I hit a wall when I couldn't get it to play outside of Eclipse. I gave up on it until I remembered reading about logic based game makers that didn't require code. I went with Construct 2 because it received the best review and it turned out to be the best decision I made. The game that I got stuck with in Eclipse was quickly recreated in Construct 2 and can now be played!Nevada City Gold Rush - Play now!
I've recently discovered game making competitions and entered my first Ludum Dare:Ghost Pirate's Ship of Treasures - Play now!
I like this product so I intend to stick to it as long as it meets my needs.
