It’s going to be a busy weekend for me – getting ready to go on a mini – vacation and all, but I’m hoping to squeeze in some time on a new project I’m working on that will hopefully show up here soon. Construct 2 has given me the inspiration to create a mini game. While it’s probably not something that would fit in Ludum Dare, it’ll be in that spirit.
I downloaded the latest version of Construct 2 and started playing around with things. Tonight you can see the particle effects,and click the button to shake the screen. So many possibilities here.
I’ve seen all these amazing giveaways on Tumblr and such, and I’ve always wanted to use the awesome Rafflecopter to create a giveaway. So, here it is! All you have to do is tweet a message or follow me on twitter.
There will be a single winner who gets a hardback copy of the book Extra Lives by Tom Bissell.
I was able to create a simple windows 2008 instance on EC2 with these handy instructions:
Just sign up for a free account, get the instance running. Log in via remote desktop and install the construct 2 software and you are good to go! Add dropbox and you can develop completely remotely and from any computer you like. Woot!
Lately I’ve been on a Construct 2 kick. Today they announced the r100 version of their excellent software. Go download it and try it out!
