Sup. Got into trying to make my own game because I'm bored and need money.
Would've gotten GM but heard this was a better alternative.

Hello! My name is Samson, and I just recently began using Construct 2. And by recently, I mean yesterday. :D So please excuse my lack of knowledge regarding anything that involves coding and whatnot. I've got no experience at all. But it's nice to be a part of this community! Now I can get all the help I need, and hopefully talk to some nice people~!! :lol:

My name is Steven. I've always been interesting in creating games and stories. I'm thinking about making a space sim with RPG elements. I've been mulling the idea of a "Jack and the Beanstalk" platformer where you climb the beanstalk, jumping from leaf to leaf.

Any ideas how I might make a leaf that's attached to a beanstalk bend when you land on it? I'd like them to behave like a spring.

Anyway, I'm excited to see what can be done. Any help and suggestions are certainly appreciated.

@StevenMonson
This section is just for introductions - none of the helpful users generally read this section.

Please post any questions you may have in the Construct 2 'How Do I' section.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Hey, everybody. Nice to meet you.

My name is John Cutter. I'm 56 years old and I've been creating games professionally since 1984. I have designed and/or produced over 60 titles, including: "Fairway Solitaire", "Defender of the Crown", "Betrayal at Krondor", "Might and Magic II", and a few more. If you are really curious you can find my design portfolio here: johncutterdesign.com

I tell people that when it comes to programming I'm a really good designer. :-) So when I want to mockup new game concepts or features at work, or I want to create some simple games at home in my spare time, I turn to tools like "Fusion 2.5", "GameMaker" and now "Construct 2". I've only been using Scirra's product for a few weeks but for the most part I really enjoy it so far!

I'm sometimes an idiot on the technical stuff so please forgive my stupid questions. But expect a lot of them... ;-)

I figure even though I am not all that much into posting on forums in general, I suppose I should post here.

First off....hello!

I've never made a game before and I started my first game building project with Gamesalad. As I stumbled through figuring things out on my own, I came across Construct 2. The other guys want $299/year for a license, Construct 2 was on sale for something like $117 and you own the license. To me, it was a no brainer to purchase and try it out. I started my project all over again from scratch after all the time and effort I spent building my game in GS. Now mind you, I learned a lot in GS, but it took me about 5 days to get to the same point it took me about 3 months to do in GS. I am loving Construct 2 beyond belief. As I am a stickler for perfection and very adamant on organization, Construct 2 is a match made in heaven for me. I love how organized I can be down to the smallest detail in my project.

That's about all I will divulge for now. :D

Hello!

I'm a 15-year old dutch student that likes to make games in his spare time. I've already made my own website about half a year ago and love learning about 1 specific topic at the game as long as it has something to do with computers in general! I've worked on a lot of diffrent projects ranging from my own airco to making 3D moddels, my own PC and even a C++ keylogger (I'm not posting that last one here, don't worry :). I start a new one in about every 2 months and learn a lot from every one of them! Oh, and my name is René Steeman.
