Hey everyone, haven't posted here yet so figured why not.
My name is Cobra and I'm from Australia.

Game creation has been my passion for pretty much my whole life and I'm really happy to have finally found Construct 2. Below is my history so far...

Commodore BASIC - Unsuccessful
MUGEN - Put together a couple free Vampire Hunter mods
RPG Maker 2000 - Started a fan game called Snatcher RPG
The Games Factory - Unreleased Tetris clone called GemTrix
RPG Maker XP - Didn't get very far so wasted money really
Multimedia Fusion - A lot of concepts and menus created... nothing more
RPG Maker VX - Bought a license but never ended up doing anything with it
Power Game Factory - My first actual game release: Soulless
BlitzMax - My second game and the first to make it onto the Mac App Store: Powerslam
Stencyl - Recreated Soulless with it but then their next update broke the game entirely
GameSalad - Recreated Soulless again so it could finally find its way onto App Stores

Those are all the main ones, but Construct 2 is my favourite of the bunch. It makes me happy GameSalad became greedy and now charges a monthly fee for anyone to even have access to their creator. I knew of Construct but since I'd have to run it in VirtualBox never tried it. Turns out despite running it in a virtual machine, Construct 2 outperforms GameSalad by miles. Heck, what took me weeks to do in GameSalad, I've recreated in Construct 2 in days. Really happy with Construct 2, just wish I made the switch sooner...

I am Eliz and I heard that Construct is a very good programming language or platform for building games and we can share the game easily to anywhere we want. That is why I start to use. I am only a student but I love programming very much. ^[]^ :D

The programming languages I am learning/ I have learnt:

Python (I learn this programming language first)
Ruby '|
Javascript |--- I am still learning them.
C++ |
Unity .|
App Inventor (Use for creating Android apps)
Scratch (easiest, it is for making games only.... maybe presentation and birthday card...)

I am not a good programmer but I love to do it in my free time.

Greetings folks,

I'm Steve from the UK, I'm 53 (yes, that old) and been a gamer since Dec 25th 1977 when my mum bought me an Atari 2600 VCS. My first actual "computer" was a Sinclair ZX81 (1kb memory (yes kb.. Not mb or gb!) no sound, black and white only and pixels the size of a house brick but ohh I did love it so.

I've pottered about with programming only a little and I was never truly competent at it, I've toyed with:-

BBC Basic
C64 Basic
Blitz Basic

I'm currently using C2 in order to see if I can learn it and it's not too complex, if it's ok for me then I'll be buying it.
