Was sup everyone!
After going through Ashley's great tutorial, and farting around with Construct 2, I have decided to take the plunge (Good thing 32$ is not that deep of one. =)).
I want to say that Scirra has really impressed me from the first moment I loaded your webpage to the completion of my first tutorial.
The program is very easy to work with, (love the animation points) and very well documented. Trust me I have tried most of the other packages out there like Gamemaker, MMF2, Unity, Torque, etc. etc..
My goal is to make roguelikes, and strategy games along the 4x line. I am hoping Construct is powerful enough to do that, at least as close to a 4x space strategy one can get in a browser anyways.
Because one of the best things about C2, is that it can be ran in the browser with HTML5. My marketing director (that is me) tells me that the sky is the limit as far as target markets go. =P
