Thinking of buying license from here instead of Steam, but..

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

You shouldn't be getting any third-party plugins with the Steam install. You'll get the main install file from either this site or Steam. All extras are downloaded by you, on your own time. The only reason you would want to buy it on Steam is so that you can see how many hours you have spent inside Construct 2. If that is important to you and you don't care about adding a middleman onto your purchase, than by all means, Steam is the way to go.

i personally think that steam is annoying cuz everytime you need to use scirra, you need to startup steam, load some stuffs, wait dunno for what just to start your scirra thing.

if you buy from this site, you just 1 click your desktop shortcut to scirra and everything is out. and when you dun like steam anymore and want to uninstall steam, you can't cuz you have your scirra in steam.

and is it just me or is scirra license getting more and more expensive...(pardon if not, i have
got a very bad memory.)

I remember only one increase of theprice of the scirra license, after that it did only increase for the $ devise once, and that was because of the evolution of the ratios between those currencies, so it was a virtual increase, unless there are other increases I did not saw.
Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.

So, I ended up buying the non-steam version license. ^_^

Welcome to the club! Too bad there's no exclusive area like Reddit's r/lounge. ;D

I bought my license on Steam some weeks ago, I use C2 on a daily basis and everything works perfect! C2 sold on Steam is exactly the same like the version you can buy on the Scirra website.
