Hey fella's I'm new around here! I am a student pursing computer science. I am a professional blogger & app developer. It helps me earn some bucks for my tuition and little extra bucks. I heard about scirra, till now I have only developed applications, yet I thought it will be a good idea to explore building games. Would definitely like to meet and get to know new people here. Who knows may be things could go well and I could pull of something big with a partner.

Hi all,
There's not much to say about me as I am just starting to play with Construct 2, but the guys at Scirra were pretty adamant that I would write an introduction here and they promised me 25 point and an introduction badge if I did so....

Well, I guess I can do them this little favor. Besides I love badges ever since I earned my 25m free swimming badge at the municipal swimming pool.

So here is me:
=============================================================

Name: Niklas Oberfeld ( N. Ob...= Enn-O-Bee = ennobee ... you get it?)

Previous lives: Grew up in the seventies, learned to code in the eightties. Proud owner of a Sinclair SX. Made about a dozen cheesy videogames. Studied electronics in the nineties as there was no real curriculum on computer sciences at that time. Worked as a low level programmer for some time while trying to make it in my spare time as a graphic artist and singer-songwriter. Then married my girlfriend and moved to America with her into a quite suburban life without any programming or artistic challenges.

Current life: I'm a blue collar stiff rapidly nearing his fiftieth birthday. I spend my time moving crates in a warehouse according to where the computer system tells me they should go. I use my computer mostly to design patterns to build nifty thingies with my scrollsaw.

...and recently I discovered Construct 2 and decided to get back in the swing of making cheesy videogames

Loves: sunshine, thunderstorms, cats, my wife, getting a well-deserved beer after a hard day's work. Good music, bad music, even Carly-Rae Jepsen's music. Coffee, lots of coffee, even more coffee... Mexican food. Board games, Role playing games, war games. All things geeky, all things history, all things aircraft. ... and since recently making video games with Construct 2

Hates: I try to live my life without any hatred. True, some stupid stuff may get my blood boiling every now and then, but I do my best to shake it all off and never go to sleep mad. Most of the time I succeed. Mortal enemies are for use in games, not in real life.

Games written on Construct 2: none so far

Games currently working on: Don't know, is there a 'Hello World' game in the tutorial? I think there should definitely be 'hello world' game...

When I am not programming, I am: probably working, or too worn out from working to do anything. Making wooden model airplanes on my scroll saw, surfing the web on my cell phone, leaving witty insights on geeky discussion boards, watching reruns of Doctor Who, cuddling with my cats, trying to be a good husband.

========================================

Okay. So I guess I earned my badge. Now let's see how this Construct 2 game making works out.

I'm from China, and now I'm studying computer engineering in Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. I heard of this game design software from a professor. I'm gonna use this tool to develop an original game with my friends.

Hi all my name is Yvonne
I was looking for how to write games without any experience, and came across this program.
I have very little skill in writing games, but was able to make my first game after looking at the tutorials.
It is very easy to use and to understand.
