A choice has been made
Alright, I decided. I’m going to abandon Construct, after reading reports of it being pretty much the worst thing to use for anything larger than an arcade game. I might come back to Construct 2.0 for something in the future, but for this game I’m not going to bother. (Plus, with Construct 2.0 they seem to be targeting the sort of people who make arcade-style Flash games anyway. Not my type of thing.) As of right now, I don’t know how I’ll bring Eibwen to life. I’m looking at using C++ with SDL and looking up bits of pre-made code as I go along, but honestly I just don’t know. It’s kind of exasperating being back at square not-quite-one, but hey, at least I have some sprites and music. It’s something.
I seriously hope I can get all this sorted out really quickly. I’m getting sick of having “that project I’ve been working on for 4 years but never gone anywhere with.”
