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!

Dev Notes 7

WarForwards

Hello everyone!


The whole story was created as B-movie class plot. I'm not a professional writer, so I didn't overestimate my strength with this.

Dialog 1


As I told in older Articles the story inspired by anime and manga, so we have not so ordinary schoolboy comes in not so ordinary Academy and participates in not so ordinary events.

Siege
I don’t know whether this is ordinary...

The story pretty standard, but I tried to add likable characters and logic in whole situation even taking into account that the main theme is pretty crazy. But even so, I wanted to make sure there were as few weird decisions and situations out of nowhere in story as possible.

Samantha
Meet Samantha! Your friend and comrade.


Initially, the story had many different characters and side story events. But after some time, it became clear that I will not be able to implement such a scale due to lack of resources.

Also, the main story did not imply a long time of events, for simple logical reasons. That’s why the whole story completes in 7 in-game days. Also only few characters make their way in final edit (but I think others will have their appearance in the future... in other games...)

Also, due to the fact that the story unfolds quite rapidly, I had to reveal the characters so that they do not pour out all the secrets of their souls on the second day of acquaintance.

So I tried to fit all information needed in casual dialogs and their actions. Also some characters can tell you more about others. So the player should have pretty clear understanding of each character in story.

Shooting Range


After completing most missions or in front of them, the player gets to the shooting range, where he can talk to the characters, replenish ammunition or change weapons. Also you can try your weapons on hologram targets there.

Dialog 2
“I should go” is always a choice.


The other important thing is a dialog choice. The story is presented as a visual novel with dialogs between the characters. I didn't want to make a player just a dumb dummy, so I made a dialog system that player can choose his lines. It’s not much but it’s much better then speechless protagonist, for me, at least.

Also, the choice that the player makes during the dialogues, allows you to learn more about the world of the game, and about the characters.

And it also affects the epilogue of history. But I'm not going to give you any more details on this, because it's better to find out for yourself, isn't it? I can only say that the idea of side stories fits in perfectly with the post-main events.


That's all for today, thanks for reading!

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 :(
