Hi I'm Aron,

I've only been programming for 3 years; the original goal being making games. So I experimented first with JavaScript, then move onto Visual Basic, C++, Java, Python and Ruby. Finally after watching a Video from the Google I/O 2009 Keynote about html5, I decided that building games on the web was the way to go. I liked the idea of developing html5 games because it is low cost, cross platform and I could use my skills in JavaScript.

The only problem with developing html5 games was there were no good libraries or game engines witch console and pc developers had the luxury of. So developing html5 games was became a long and laborious process where you were forced to reinvent the wheel.

Although I was wiling to develop my own solution, I never had the time to write the engine or code library. Today I am pleased to have discovered that Scirra have done all the hard work with Construct! So now we can just get on with making games

I am looking forward to putting Construct2 to the test with developing games and apps.

Hello, my name is Orgmoy. I'm very interested in pushing Construct 2 to create unique things... Games, websites, whatever. I see a lot of potential... So I'm probably gonna throw down the money for it real soon. It's cheap! I'll most likely be using the forum to seek out tutorials, have questions answered, and share my games when they're finished.

Hi, I'm Sam Joseph and I teach a Game Programming and Design class online at Hawaii Pacific University: http://www.techhui.com/events/csci-3651-game-programming-at

We've been using GameMaker and Unity3D and are interested to see what Construct has to offer!

Hi! Havok here.

Found the original Construct a while ago looking for something other than Gamemaker.

Got busy with other projects in Unity3d and getting closer to finishing a game on there. 3D PC/Mac

However, wanting to dabble with HTML5 web games and such I came back to Construct 2 when it was announced. Used to be a Flash web developer a long time ago Flash 5 and 6. When I have time I play around with it. Still learning it though but want to start prototyping some games I have in mind soon.

Hi, I'm Zaketh.
I found Construct 2 searching for a way to make games easily. Since I really liked the free version, I decided to buy the standard one, and now I really look forward to make great and entertaining games that others can enjoy.

@PedroCaparelli

1) No, C2 is a 2D game engine. A link to the past style is entirely possible, though.

2) It will be entirely capable of making RPGs when it's a little more complete (needs families and functions, mainly. Well, technically they aren't needed for an RPG, but they make things MUCH easier). It's almost there already.

Executables that are basically a wrapper for an HTML5 game are already possible, though it's not directly implemented in C2 (have to do it yourself). A native EXE exporter being made at some point is very likely either by Scirra or someone else with the exporter development kit when it is released.Arima2011-11-07 21:44:32

Though this is actually my 5th post, i do want to introduce myself.

I go by the name alias 'The Mighty Atom', the same name that was given to one particular episode of the that British supermarionation show from the 60'ies.

Just started working with Construct and it's lots of fun, despite the fact that it's still being worked on.

Im very active in the Half-Life mapping/level design community known as TWHL (The Whole Half-Life) Take a look and find my profiles to see my maps and mods.

Im a also a space geek and i love rockets and space, as well as NASA. Too bad to see the space shuttle retire. Looking forward to its successor.

Im also pretty decent with the Visual Basic .NET programming language, but there still many area's im not familiar with yet.

Well, i guess that's all i have to share for now.

See you on the forums!

I am a bit late for this topic but doing it for the badge as well xD
Hi I'm Donatas, I live in Ireland and I'm currently 18 years old. I love to try and develop games, haven't started college for game making but will in one year and I have been trying to learn game making for couple of years. I currently like construct 2 as it's easy software to use and it uses a good language for output.

Thanks.
