Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Richard Snead and I'm founder and CEO of CyberMyth Games. I'm a published developer of multi-platform computer games and in addition to this I have authored several popular game development courses and books such as Stencil Essentials. My latest project is Astro Jump, a gravity defying space themed platformer set to be released for PC and Mac in 2016. In this course we're going to learn how we can create 2D games quickly and easily with Construct 2. Some of the major topics that will be discussed in this course will include how to develop games quickly and effectively in Construct 2 and porting and configuring audio and visual assets, working with animated characters, implementing collision detection and creating and destroying MPC's in real time. By the end of the training you will be able to use Construct 2 to create your very own 2D game prototypes. I'm excited to work with Digital Tutors once again and share these valuable tricks and techniques with fellow and aspiring game developers. So lets get started with the first lesson. (light music)
