Hello, my Name is Tyler Spencer.I am 19 years old, live in Bellevue Washington dont go to school and have a passion for games. I have a variety of programming experiences with some c#, xaml, Java, python...

Recently I have dabbled in the arts of gamemaker gml however would like to look at construct as well. In the past I have made tutorials and reviews of gamemaker, and plan to do so with construct.However, I first must continue to familiarize myself with the program.

In light of that, I can say that Construct may have the upper hand on gamemaker thus far. Both have some strengths...this is a discussion for another time.

In my spare time I enjoy playing rpg fantasy genre games. Hate pokemon and final fantasy styled games with a passion.. I also enjoy rts games such as Warcraft III. Couldn't bring myself to like WoW, GW1 was so much better. GW2 I try every once in a while but it cant compete with the original.

If I am not playing games. I dabble in making them. Admittedly, I usually only create conceptual demos. Meaning, never a full game, only pieces to them such as player controls. Some basic actions and things. I guess I make "engines" for games and don't use them...
I also have played around with creating game servers in java and integrating them with gamemaker.

I am however starting an actual game this time around. One that I plan to get into a finished state if ever a game can be called finished. It will be a mobile game. Tablets and smartphones.

I am artistically challenged. Usually this is why I stick to only demos. But, for my future game, I have gotten in contact with an artist and look forward to seeing where that leads us!

In the past I have worked with companies and have gotten #1 rated and sold apps across apple, amazon, windows etc. I am no longer a part of these companies as I discovered that while I have a passion for what programming can do. I prefer coding on my own time for my own desires. Regardless, it was a fun experience.

Professionally, I am a building inspector. Lead based paint, and asbestos licensed. Basically, I make sure the building materials are safe and people dont get sick or injured. As well as testing air quality and other fun things.

My computer is of an enthusiast level. I believe there are a minority of people that have a similar setup. But I do video encoding, photoshop, compiling games etc... I love building and overclocking, just getting the best out of computers possible.
For you tech people out there here are some specs:
  • CPU: Intel i7 3930k 6 core 4.5ghz
  • MOBO: p9x79 pro
  • RAM: 8x4gb sticks of ram. 32gb 1600mhz
  • PSU: ax1200i 80plus platinum
  • GPU: gtx 780

It is liquid cooled.

And that is a little about me. I plan to stick around for a while, or hope to at least haha.

Hello! My name is Edward. I live in Japan with my family.
I teach English and own a school.
I'd like to use Construct to make simple games for children to learn English.
So far I've been able to click 3 nice games together in under 2 hours and set up a high score MySQL database and some of my students in my English school have already had fun with these games that I've made.

By the way, I'm not charging my students to play these games but does this still require me to upgrade?

Anyway I've been so impressed with this software I'm going to be upgrading anyway.

You may be better off emailing Scirra directly, as they are interested in educational usage of C2.

Oh, and welcome :)zenox982013-12-16 11:15:38
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Dear Developers,

    My name is Austin. On here you guys will know me as Loxincorp. I am a small time developer who loves what I do and loves doing it for you guys. I have a YouTube channel if you guys want to check it out the channel is called 3DReviewsMC. You can also follow me on twitter @piffpiffpiff. Now a little about me. I am a game developer as you know. There is a game I am working on with my group Lox Studios named After The End. We are aiming for this game to be on Steam Greenlight and hopefully one day on PS4 and XBOXONE. We are using the CryEngine to develop this game and we are licensed users. There is a video on my channel if you would like to see what the game will look like and for the future once we have the Alpha out we will be putting it up on our Steam Group with keys so anyone can play. Now enough of the Crytek side of development and on to the Construct side.

    With Construct I hope to make games that just make people smile when they play them. I hope to bring that good feeling of success in a game and help everyone love what they do as well as what I do. I haven't gone too far with the Construct program but I hope to soon. I do have one game up already called NightRun. This game is currently in the test stages and if you would like to play it feel free to. I would love to hear any comments or even criticism on it. I want to know what you guys want. I would like to thank everyone here for being such a great community and a special thanks to Scirra for making all of this possible. Anyone can make these games and it is just incredible to have such ease in the development world these days. So without further ado I should probably stop jabbering and let you guys go on with your day. Thanks for reading and thank you all for clicking the thread. Have a great day my friends and I will see you in the dev world.

    With much love, Austin Smith
