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

Some months ago I revealed my new project in its very early, but playable state and conveyed my intent for the larger scope of said project.


It's been a while and I'm happy to give a big update on the game's development progress and trajectory, filled with pictures and pictures and more pictures.

First, the game is actually nearing completion which is exciting, and will launch sometime in the next few months on Steam if all goes according to plan.

There was an Alpha Demo released some months back so if you'd like to play that you can do so from these fine places, (including downloading it from this site). Any comments are welcome.

The second level introduces the other type of level found
in the game (different from the Demo), auto scrolling levels.




The Brine Sun



The third level includes portions where you can freely fly
about turning things into a bit of a shmup type level.




Embryo



Icy level four, complete with falling stalactites and icy floors.




Heart of the Adit



Level five, invisible platforms and wacky gravity shenanigans!




?



Level six has a lot more vertical space and plenty of portals.




The First Familiar



Level seven has a more claustrophobic FOV and a rather important secret
which involves the Boss of the level.




Atlas



That's all the proper levels in the game, right now the last Boss/Level/Sequence is being done.

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.
Please update :)

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 :(
