Tutorial written by KyatricOriginally published on 27th, April 2013 - 1 revision

Hi, during April 2013 Yann and I conducted an online course on how to make a platformer oriented towards beginners.

The course was composed of 4 sessions of 2h to 2h30 and we also recorded some extra videos to weight up on specific points.

The course was held on Twitch, a video streaming platform. The videos were also uploaded to Scirra's Youtube account.
We also had a University of Reddit page as well as a subreddit where the capx for each sessions and extra videos are available.

Congratulations to Yann and Kyactric for running this four week course on making a platform game in Construct2. The videos were clearly given and very informative, and the two areas i was having a problem with were containers and lerp, but thanks to the extra videos, which explained them clearly.
Hope to see more training videos from you guys.
