Make HTML5 Games - No Programming Required

Construct 2 is the follow up from Scirra's Construct Classic which has had around 500,000 downloads to date. Construct 2 allows people to make game in an intuitive and visual way. Scirra's ambition is to make Construct 2 better, more stable and more powerful than Construct Classic. Construct 2 is based on years of experience developing Construct Classic.

Export to HTML5

Construct 2 initially only exports to HTML5, but more export formats are going to be supported in the future such as EXE and possibly native mobile applications. Construct 2 is mainly for 2D game development. It aims to open the doors of game making to everyone by presenting making games in a visual and intuitive way.

HTML5 Demos

Scirra has released a couple of fully playable and functional HTML5 demos. The project files for these demos can also be downloaded and experimented with.

Construct 2 Versions

There are currently three versions of Construct 2, the free edition, the standard early adopter and the business early adopter. The free version comes bundled with free music, sound effects, ambient sounds and animated sprites. The paid editions release a few restrictions the free version places and also come with far more resources to use in your games.

Learning Resources

Scirra's website has lots of tutorials and their forum is very active.

Adva-lines

Adva-Lines

Hi everyone.
This post will do a short overview of my game's content.
Adva-lines consists of many game modes, most of which are based on match-5 mechanic and pushed wa-a-a-y beyond it.

So far the game have:
1) 15 game modes
2) campaign of в 100+ hours (9 chapters of 15 missions each)
3) functional achievements (which affect certain aspects of the game)
4) 3 game modes for 2 players (hotseat)
5) 2 languages support: russian & english

# SUMMARY
Basic mechanic is sorting figures of same shape into a formation (line, X-type, T-type etc...) plus each game mode provide it's own additional features, skills and perks. Consists of game modes of type logic, puzzle, clicker, arcade.

# PERKS
All game mode, which contain game board and figures has global perks system. There is 3 perk groups and you gain perk-points of that group when completing lines in certain conditions (extended length, contains many figures of same color). You can spend this perk-points to buy perks. Perk is (mostly) one-timed ability that helps you during your play - you can remove figure, change it's shape etc.

Okay, ever since the little trail that resulted from my first comment -- I take no issue with Construct 2, it just sort of came out of nowhere (at least for me). I hope you guys succeed with it, and maybe even manage to get within the realm of 3D games.

I'm still going to be using Construct Classic, but I wish you guys all the best.

Correct me if I'm wrong -- but wasn't Construct made to be an open source engine?

Construct and Construct 2 are not the same thing.

We have Construct Classic, and open source game making engine.

We have since written a new engine from the ground up, Construct 2, which isn't open source.

They are both very distinct.

They probably thought they could change that by adding a "2" at the end :c

We added a 2 to the end because it's our second game engine! They are not the same product.

You are a ******* idiot. Construct 1 was mostly in c++ and this is now in html5 and javascript (making it web compatible). So basically its a whole new engine.

Construct 1 is still FREE and OPEN-SOURCE .... so i don't see the big hoey about the fact that they want to make a profit out of a new web compatible version .

Exactly , at least people can still use the open source one for free and commercial use , The second one is more for web-use , i don't like web games :(
