Hi, I'm Duncan. I'm 17 and I don't really have much of a history with gaming other than playing LEGO Loco or LEGO Racers on my old Windows 98 (I guess I'm a PC person). Anyway, I found out about Construct 2's existance when I was browsing through the Steam store page in the learning/development section. When I saw the Steam article and the feature "No programming required" I relished with joy and decided to get into to it (Not in the Steam version of cource).
After experimenting with the software for about 4 months I have learned the basics of it and I can't wait to finalize my first game.

I became interested in gamemaking when I started to find a repetitive behavior in my games. Unfortunantly, since math and programming is so rage-inducingly difficult, I was starting to limit my game ideas after what I could do. Then, all of a sudden, I found Construct 2 and everything felt alot easier.

Long story short, I'm a simple user of the free version of Construct 2 and I'm looking forward to all the future projects will I make and all the other games on the Scirra Arcade and everywhere else. :D

Hello everyone!
Now, i'm a new member of this.
My project in mind is to start a platform game with a background story that will overcome challenges to achieve the love of my girlfriend.
I want to impress her, and give the game as anniversary.
Give me some ideas for the game, haha
Greetings :)

Hi, my name is weewoo. I'm a college dropout who was trying to become a behavioral analyst, now trying to learn how to program to create more intuitive and memorable experiences.

I think the mechanics of video games are my best tool for that.

I also have an odd request, but one that could help me get out of this funk I'm in.
I have a lot of trouble staying on task, so imagine how hard it would be for me to plan a long term project. I have more to-do lists on varying forms of medium than I actually have finished to-do lists. Could one of you email me daily? And challenge me to learn how to use this game maker? I'll be eternally grateful.

Hey everybody,

I am new to this Forum but have been programming for a few years already in C++, C#(XNA), HTML, CSS, Javascript and Java(but most C++ and C# ;).
So I hope for a nice community and sorry for my bad English, it´s not my main language(I am from Austria) ;)

Hi everybody! I'm (almost) 25 years old, live in Belgium and wish to create some games I've been dreaming and thinking about for a long time. In my studies I had programming and basic HTML/CSS/JavaScript and now I'm a full-time C# developer.

Half a year ago I tried to get my game developer dream kick started by joining a specialized school to create games. It was interesting but I came to realize that I was mostly interested in programming and game concepts. The drawing was way out of my league and the 3D was pretty tricky too sometimes. I felt I was wasting hours and hours drawing and modeling while I wanted to create the logic/engine behind a game. Besides that I was using up all my spare money for this and I know it is hard to make a living of just creating games. That's why I went back to the job market for a general C# developer job where I continue to learn about programming as well and get a good paycheck at the end of the month.

However, I promised myself to never give up my game development dream and would continue to work towards it. Now that I've settled in my new job I can start spending some of my free time on it. Recently I've been doing some research and I decided that I wanted to get my games on multiple platforms. I read about HTML5/JavaScript and all of its possibilities. I was planning to make my games all by hand but I soon found out this not a productive way to get things done. Then I heard about Construct 2 and GameMaker. Now I'm going to give Construct 2 a try and see where it gets me.

Good luck to everyone and maybe we can help each other in the future!
