Bonjour! This is my first time creating any sort of game, much less using a legit engine to design one. I was inspired while doing research on the coding language required to create a mobile trivia app for iOS/Android. I was recently laid off work at a magazine I wrote for, so I figured now's as best time as any to learn something new and put my creativity to use.
I happened upon a HuffPost article on video game creation. The author had designed a retro/arcade game in just two weeks and had shared the game. I played a few levels and was super impressed. He'd listed Construct 2 as his design platform, and so I looked into it a bit further, and absolutely fell in love.
As a 22-yr old individual game maker, I DL'd the free version to start myself off, but will purchase a license in the very near future when I start actually developing the game. I have limited experience with GIMP, so I'll be using that as my art/UI software creation tool.
I want to thank the Construct 2 devs for their amazing work, and I CAN'T WAIT to create my game and put it on the market! I look forward to interacting with the community here and learning more about the behind-the-scenes of indie game development
