More about Construct 3

Thanks to the migration to online, the editor has become cross-platform - you can now work from any device connected to the Internet (even a smartphone or tablet). By opening a tab in the browser, the user gets the full functionality to work, which depends on the availability of the license.

The license in Construct 3 is given by a yearly subscription and has different rates:

  • Free demo mode with limited functionality.
  • Individual tariff - $99 per year, provided that the developer's capital turnover per year does not exceed $5,000.
  • Business rate for newbies - $149 a year with no game creator annual turnover over $50 000.
  • Business rate - $399 a year with unlimited capital turnover.

As the editor, instead of the traditional text, Event Sheet Editor is used: this simple designer is capable of creating a full-fledged project in a dozen minutes. Also, the editor has several useful features:

  • Live Preview - allows you to include a preview of the execution of the command directly in the editor, monitoring the execution and correction take place in one window.
  • Compiler - Build applications for mobile operating systems is also done in the editor: almost any library can be connected for compilation.
  • Editor Plugin SDK - the plugin allows you to create and connect your own editors to the project.

Also, the function to save the project to the device is available in the browser. Completely worked out project is ready for distribution on Steam, mobile operating systems, Windows and Linux, Facebook, Xbox One, etc. A nice bonus is the compatibility of the program and projects with the previous version of Construct and full Russification of the constructor.

Thus, Construct 3 is a revised and improved version of Construct 2, transferred to the online development mode. Construct 3 offers full functionality for both beginners and professional developers. The only disadvantage is the price of the license and its upgradability, but this should not be a big problem for developers who make profit from their projects.
