Superhero Game Returns?

Yes.  I know that I kind of pushed all of that aside, but there is something about the accessibility of Construct 2 that makes me think that I could actually create my dream project.  Previously, my biggest hurdle was the time I was spending trying to learn coding in C#.  I'm comfortable admitting that my brain can not handle the deep complexities entailed in programming and I bow to anyone that can achieve it.  Bravo to you.  

So I think I'm going to start going through some Construct 2 tutorials and see if I can get a handle on this program.  The only weakness that I see is that there doesn't seem to be an easy way to switch between player states.  This is pretty integral because I need to be able to switch between "platforming" and "flying" with the press of a button.  We'll have to see how that works.

And now onto the first tutorial: How To Make a Platform Game


  1. Perhaps you should find another programmer to work with. Your art is good, and a superhero game sounds like a fun project, so I can't imagine you'd have much trouble finding someone.

    1. First off, I really like your developer logs on Youtube and look forward to more. As far as your comment, I tried to find someone else a couple times with little to no luck. It feels like everyone out there has their own ideas and passion projects. So I can understand the difficulty in finding someone that just wants to follow into my idea. Luckily, I learned a lot about what is going on "behind the curtain" in a video game while trying to learn XNA and think I can apply that to this. Right now I'm trying to get a handle on Construct 2 and learn about game design. Sorry for the overly long reply.
