By using Construct 2 and it's extremely fast ability to get a thought out of your head and into code, we are going to be diving right into creating our game.

Why take this course?
The lectures are quick and easy to understand. If you follow along with the provided assets you will easily find yourself able to create any kind of game once the course is over. I personally think that as soon as you finish the course you are going to want to add so much more to your own game that you are going to have no choice!
Is this course right for me?
If you have never programmed before this course is perfect for you. If you have programmed before this course is ALSO perfect for you. Whether you are just starting out or an advanced user you will find some of this information helpful.
How is this course structured?
I have structured this course in a way where we add the important things first and create the gameplay second. By creating and fine tuning the mechanics as we go we are able to understand everything Construct 2 has to offer and create an awesome game on the way!
I hope to see you in the discussion!
