Construct Game Starter Kit Collection (1st Edition) is a hands-on guide for making browser games using both Construct Gaming Framework versions 2 and 3, in Community released editions. You may also purchase these chapters individually which includes both v2 and v3. This collection delves into 16+ of the greatest classical and popular game mechanics with 19 sub-genres (for a total of 35!). All are written in a fun and friendly style with completed projects and open-ended exercises that encourage you to build and include your own game assets and features. You’ll also download supporting tools to classify the book’s snippets and add your own modification.

The Construct Game Starter Kit Collection contains several sections. It starts with an Introduction into game perspective, modes, genres, workstation set-up, and generation tools. Part I demonstrates basic game mechanisms using Construct Gaming Framework. Each chapter is a separate game mechanic -- 16+ for Construct2 (and the same 16+ starter-kits for Construct3 in a separate Part III section)! This is a reference book; simply turn to the game chapter you'd like to create. In a matter of hours, you will have a working game prototype for that game mechanics using the Game Design System™ -- fully explained in the Construct Game Design workbook (1st edition). You then add your own artwork and additional game features; over the next few days, you have your own completed game ready to deploy in the "apps" stores.

You’ll find detailed working examples, with dozens of illustrations and many concepts you can freely apply to your own bespoke gaming projects. All the source code annotations enhance the book’s explanation. If you prefer, you can buy individual chapters - sold separately on LeanPub.com or Amazon.com
