hi! my name is Janna and i'm a young video game developer/designer. i've developed three games with unity ( gonna be published soon ), a test game with GameSalad and a platform game with Construct 2. i'm still experimenting with Construct 2 and it works great!

so i allowed myself to interview myself!

What's your full name?

Janna Mohammed Badawy

How old are you?

12 right now, gonna be 13 next year. ( i know that you may think that i'm small to join this amazing community but i'm improving my programming skills and i'd love if you could support me :) )

what do you wanna be when you grow up?

I seriously want to be a game developer and open my little game company which will make games of all kinds! the urge of becoming a programmer took me from when i was 10, when my mean computer teacher ( i'm sorry but she was actually pretty mean to me ) introduced us to HTML, and that when the doors of heaven have been opened infront of my eyes ( funny thing: my name means Heaven in Arabic ). however, my dad encouraged me to practice more and love programming since he's a programmer himself.

Why did you choose Construct 2?

i actually heard about construct 2 from 2 months but i was too lazy to download it (i'm sorry) however, when i downloaded it last week i made a platform game in 1 week! Construct 2 is the best game engine for HTML 5 games however i'd love if the Android performance is better :)


AND THANKS FOR READING THIS BORING ARTICLE! THANK YOU! :)

Hi there :)
My name is Siniša and im from Zagreb, Croatia. Just turned 34 and just found out about Scirra and Construct. Maybe too old to begin making video games, but it' never to late to start, eh?
I have been playing video games all my life and for the last few years i wanted to get into the industry. I found out about you through Machina - - Croatian based Game Design centre.

Im soo glad i found you, now all i need is a cool idea and some luck i guess.

Glad to be here!
Cheers :)

Been using Construct 2 for well over a month now, even made a few posts but introducing myself got a bit delayed cause I didn't find this thread at first. Better late than never I guess:

I'm Valtteri (Finnish equivalent for "Walter") and been playing games since I got some from cereal boxes in the 90s and then spent too many hours playing Pokemon Yellow on GameBoy. As long as I've been playing games, I've also been drawing. I studied in an upper secondary school of visual arts for 3 years (similar to a college prep HS in the states, that's what wikipedia says anyway :geek: ). My first school year also happened to be the anniversary of the school and I attended 2 speeches by ex-students working in the game industry. Around the same year, Finnish mobile game Angry Birds went rival and I heard about a game called Minecraft people were addicted to. It blew my mind when I read that Minecraft was developed by a single Swedish-Finnish dude and realized that he had just become an online celebrity and a millionaire in a matter of months. I knew I wanted to become a game artist.

Graduated from the school last year, had a gap year and now I'm 20, studying game design in a private academy for one year. Still, I had not made any games, because I didn't know how to code. One October night, I googled something like "making games without knowing how to code" and ended up at Scirra.com. Downloaded Construct 2 the next day and I knew I had the piece I had been missing from making my dream come true. Next week in the academy, we were told to come up with a simple concept for a game. I made a prototype of that game idea the next morning, in just 2 hours using construct 2.

I've been working on that same game idea and it has escalated to the point where I'm thinking of publishing the game for mobile sometime next year.
"If you don't build your dream, someone else will hire you to build theirs"

I want this app because I am creating a game for an application. But I can't afford it because I have to pay for the school if I get in with this game. My friends --Taha-- Found this website for me and it is very help. l I learned about the app and everything but when I go to get it I realized it costs money! I was just trying this to see if maybe I can create a game online. :D
