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 little creature up there is called Makh. I don't know exactly what it is, maybe you can tell me. Makh matures through interaction with the world, its main motivation being the colors it absorbs and the shapes it learns. To move through space it has to learn to switch and control three layers of platforms. Progress is achieved by properly analyzing visual cues. Take good care of Makh.

If this description didn't help maybe the trailer will explain it better:

In any case, it's a simple(ish) platformer deigned to hopefully offer something unusual and/or fresh. I tried to blend videogame with short animated film form and add some mechanical twists along the way. The story is told visually through traditionally animated cutscenes and text that provides both tutorial and questions to the player. I wanted to establish an emotional connection between the player and character, you be the judge of my success or failure. The whole game is a one man band production, with the exception of (IMO excellent) sound and music. At this time nothing else comes to mind but if you have questions or feedback, I welcome both. Also, here is the link to win, mac and linux versions of the game.

To conclude the article, here are some screenshots. Have fun playing! :)

Hello All.
Somebody should update the "Platforms" supported by the engine.
I add a game in SlideDB and the was no construct 2 option because there no Android support for it.

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 :(
