Make HTML5 Games

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.

Download Free Edition

You can download Construct 2 Free Edition here. Make some games today!

This quote by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is a great starting point for better understanding the many diverse morality systems in Sand is the Soul. It’s not only a matter of choosing one of a few colored endings or killing one NPC or the other. Each of your actions literally has its consequences and whether the outcome of your choices is good or bad, you decide on your own.

Sand is the Soul offers players complete freedom to venture wherever and do whatever they want.. There are no tutorials or hand holding. There’s only the player, the game and the full immersion provided by the choices which will reflect his own personality. The morality of the decision is yours to judge. Nothing is universally good or evil.

Do bear in mind that what we have called a „karma” system has a significant impact on the gaming experience. Your good or bad deeds result in some NPCs becoming either friendly or hostile. One character will start hunting you while others will aid you on your journey. The safe havens will become battlegrounds and vice versa.

The moral intricacies of Sand is the Soul don’t stop there! In some cases your doings can be seen as a crime which can impact your overall crime rate and make the game more difficult. There’s also a system called foreknowledge which depicts the player’s attitude towards the Nature. Not to mention all the romantic possibilities.

Sand is the Soul is not your average beat ’em up. It’s a mix of soulslike mechanics with gameplay influenced by Golden Axe and the classic complexity of moral choices inspired directly by the Fighting Fantasy series of gamebooks by Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson. That’s why even the smallest action made at the beginning of the journey can have significant implications at the end of the road, driving you into one of the multiple story outcomes.

It’s up to you to become a loyal diplomatic messenger or a wanted mass murderer with a thirst for power.

When trying to chat with the hunter, he will only acknowledge the hero with a bow, but after raising karma, he will opens up and grant tips and/or info on the lore.

Due to our high Karma, the Mad Watcher will deliberately mislead us into a trap. It would be the opposite if our karma was low.

If you like our game, please add Sand is the Soul to your wishlist, to be up to date with all the future announcements.

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 :(
