11:10am to 12:25pm (MST)

Session Level: 100

Construct 2 is an HTML5/Javascript game engine that allows for the creation of mobile, desktop and web based games. Designed for rapid development, Construct allows you to create games in a fraction of the time as other engines. Construct 2 has an active and passionate community, with over 2.8 million downloads to date.

This session will be an overview of the basics of Construct and is for anyone who would like to learn to create games. We will go over some basic game design fundamentals, and then dive into building a simple game with Construct 2. This session will also (time permitting) touch upon the value of rapid prototyping, source control and other basic fundamentals.

Finally, we will hold a Q&A session and discuss local resources for game developers such as the Idaho Game Developers Group which meets twice a month.

Session materials will be available at www.thud.io
