Hey all, my name's James and I'm a games developer. I've been programming for 2-3 years now, starting off with simple Python apps, and evolving to intricate VB.NET apps.
Over the past year, I've used Game Maker: Studio (meh) and Corona SDK (yuck) to make games, and now am considering using Construct 2, I'm downloading the free version now, and hope to get some good stuff happening.
My ultimate goal is to get into Nintendo's Wii U self-publishing program, and use their Web Framework to port a game over onto it, and then release it on Android, iOS and all that as well. I've made a few games, like Don't Touch My Teddy Bear (Android) and The Stadium Project (PC) and I own my own unregistered games company named Jarokn Games.
I hope that this tool turns out to be a good one, because Game Maker: Studio is so expensive and not even cross platform without a massive upfront fee.
