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.

About The Light of Dark Stars with 0 comments by jeskobar10 on Jul 6th, 2015

The Light of Dark Stars is filled with ancient ruins, pirate vaults, and mysterious temples. Here are some of the things that you can find within.

First up are blueprints:

Blueprints are required to build ships. They are tiered by rarity, with blue being common, green being uncommon, purple being rare, and orange being legendary. Blueprints expire after several uses, so the player will have to endeavor to find more after their initial supply runs out.

There are also treasures. Some treasures grant empire wide bonuses, while others are used once and then expended. Think of them sort of like action cards in a board game or sort of like Tyrion's clever stratagem at the Battle of Blackwater Bay.

First is the Bioweapon:

Expended after one use, the Bioweapon will decimate the population of the world it is deployed on.

Next, a Data Archive:

Data Archives are more of a random chance piece of loot. Some can be exchanged for cash, others contain rare blueprints, and still more hold the location of long forgotten planets.

Ancient Codex

A curious device of unknown origin coveted by Drakonaught pilots. If left on a world, a Drakonaught will soon show up and raze the planet in order to acquire it. It can also be traded to a wide variety of interested parties.

Antimass Claymore

An elegant weapon from a more civilized age, the blade of this sword weighs as much as a small moon to all but its wielder. Far too powerful for today's primitive warriors to wield in combat, its incredible density makes it a deadly weapon when dropped from orbit.

Next up, History!

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?

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 :(
