Hello,

My name is Richard, I'm a resident of the US, and I've been interested in the process of making games since the Sega Genesis days, I was amazed at what the console could do back then, I have taken C#, Java, Flash and Graphic Design classes and I may register for 3Ds Max classes at my community college this semester. I am not an expert on any of these fields as I am, for lack of a better term, a jack of all trades master of none, for the reason is that I attempt all these different fields and see what sticks to me, but I am simply too interested in all these fields and personally feel that I do not have enough time in this world because I want to make lots of videogames.

Back in middle school me and some friends made some labyrinth puzzles on pen and paper and that was pretty fun, with some teleportation gates and monsters and all kinds of stuff like that. Then, helped out collaborate with a few drawings on a forum RPG that surprisingly saw the light of day, and there was another RPG we worked on that one didn't took off, I guess we were burned out on the previous one. I've been inspired on the 3D side of things mainly because of REZ and want to make a game very similar like that in the future as there are not enough games in this world for that amazing vision of synesthesia. But, the problem with that is I have no idea on how to make 3D games, another idea is making 2D games like metroidvania type games, those are excellent, and Construct 2 seems like the perfect tool for it. I would be lying if Pixel's Cave Story was not an incredible inspiration. I'm sure a lot of us feel that way.

I look forward to meeting new people, and collaborate on a project together. Let's take care of each other.

Hi my name is Lourens!

I live in South Africa and English is my second language (so don't judge my spelling mistakes :P)

I have an degree in Graphic Design and I'm a Professor at loving games :D I just wanted to say THANK YOU SCIRRA! You guys have made it possible for me to put together a simple game in a matter of minutes, without actually having any game making skills prior to that!

You guys have impressed me so much that I am considering buying this software, just because I want to support you guys and I want to have all the features to my disposal!

My dream one day is to make my own games and have my own gaming studio, and for the first time it's actually more of a reality than just a dream. So once again...Thank you very much!

Hi All,
I've been using this kickass piece of software for around a month now. Very nice and easy to use. Close to finalising my first game now, hoping to add it to the Android Market within the week!!

Hi there everyone! Greetings from Brazil! As a nice alternative to make some game concepts, and hopefully colaborate with anyone here, I saw Construct 2 the best way to do so.

One of the big factors to choose it, it's the great community here, and the nice features in C2!

I'm a mix of artist, designer and developer... but still learning. Like level 1, lol. As a totally indie, I must find time to research more and develop my projects in free time, because I work all day lolz...

I welcome all the new and previous users since the start of this year.

Have fun o/////
