Hey. I go by Stargoat netside.
An Australian studying as an engineer, my real passion is lies in gaming. Growing up on the NES, SNES, games have always been highly interesting. Having wanted to get in to game development from an early age, I began dabbling around in game maker and C++... that didn't go very far.
Construct is attractive because of its easy, quick and intuitive style. Hopefully here I can find the motivation to actually make something.
While I enjoy all genres (to some extent), some favourite (non-indie?) games from over the years include System Shock 2, Super Mario Brothers 3, Starcraft, F-Zero, Super Metroid, Perfect Dark, Killer 7, Sin and Punishment, Space Quest, Super Monkey Ball 2, Jagged Alliance 2, Fallout, Layer Section and Radiant Silvergun... the list goes on.
Out of the mainstream, ADOM, Skyroads, Tapan Kaikki, Tango Strike, Happyland, Braid, Eternal Daughter, Cave Story, La Mulana, Return to Sector 9, Dwarf Fortress, and anything by Kenta Cho are just some of the games that have helped define, in my mind, what makes gaming awesome.
