Wow. I have been searching for something like this for a long time. I had all but given up!
The fact it’s free is even better! (thanks for that Gdev folks!).
I have tried Construct 2 (couldn’t get a feel for it) and Gamemaker (couldn’t understand the programming language side of things, the drag and drop was lacklustre).
I have never been so excited to be starting to make games for release on PC.
I have been heavily involved in the retro games dev scene, primarily for the Amiga computer and have attached a screenshot of a game I am co-creating at the moment, but I need to move over to PC, that’s where my plans are taking me.
