Just a little side note: If you own the personal license and hit the $5000 in revenue, you don't have to pay the full business license price, they let me upgrade my personal license to business for the difference.

I love the simple actions like in Kudo or Project Spark (When X > Do Y) so I got Construct 2 on Steam. It was 50% off for just about 50 instead of 100 for a short time. Maybe there will be another offer like that in the future to save some money if 100 is too much for you at once/right now. (it was for me ;))

But it has all features of the "big" busines version so just get the Personal and as said above if you make a great game and get many $$$ you can buy the other licens for about 350.

Email us at [email protected] if you want to upgrade from Personal to Business and we can arrange a pay-the-difference upgrade. You only need a Business license once you have already made $5000 in revenue, so hopefully the additional cost is not a problem by then.

Considering Construct 2 gives you all possible platform exporters for a single price, it makes it considerably cheaper than buying the same set of platforms for GameMaker. The Master collection is $799, which is the equivalent product you get when you get either Construct 2 license.

GM is also quite a significantly different product to C2 anyway: C2's strength is in its much superior drag-and-drop event system, whereas GM has a focus on scripting. (You can also use Javascript in C2 with the Javascript SDK to make custom plugins and behaviors.)

Lol, and the crowd goes wild

Good choice, I decided on C2 over Game Maker recently and haven't looked back (And I really loved Game Maker) but C2 is more productive (you can get a working game in faster time.
You think you can do these things, but you can't, Nemo!
Just keep reading.
