Lol, I just read the description:

Apparently there isn't a "Make character fly" button in Stencyl. Poor guy :P

Since we're on Stencyl, I haven't seen any screenshots or further details since they started private beta. Any sleuths out there who can track down some details? Who knows, it might actually be good.

From what I've seen/heard, the runtime sucks compared to construct. I haven't found any info on the IDE or scripting system yet.

Here's a video of a more complete game.

IMO Stencyl pales in comparision to Construct from what I've seen so far.

The low fps could be to do with him capturing video, that often slows things down (unless they use Camtasia which is awesome and doesn't slow anything down hehe).

Hey, no need to be offensive about someone's work just because they're using a potentially competing program. Surely how good your animations are doesn't depend on the tool you use?

I may not agree with the philosophy behind Stencyl, but hey, it's a free world and each to their own. I want to make sure these forums are always a friendly place (which sadly seems quite rare on the internet) - ideally someone from Stencyl, Game maker and such could drop in with a few posts without being shouted down.

Stencyl started a "closed beta" program around the end of October (invite only). I'm not sure how many people are using it now but from what they same it seems to be easier to learn than Gamemaker.

Who knows when the general public will be allowed to download it. They still refuse to show screenshots of the editor, and I guess they're not even allowed to talk about the editor in any detail. :|

Eeek, so even now there really is no proof that it exists.
