My personal theory is that they both came up with the same logo independently, most likely while eating a bag of monster munch.
And even if they did steal the logo (which I admit is a possibility, given that Stencyl doesn't even begin with the letter "C"), at least they didn't steal the entire program concept (like Construct did from MMF).

Either way, I think it's fair to say that even if Stencyl is ever actually released, it is not going to be an MMF-killer.



this needs to stop. yes, there are a lot of similarities, the creator worked for clickteam, etc. but anyone with an unbiased opinion who has EVER used construct knows it is far from a clone of mmf. there are more major differences than there are subtle similarities. most of the features are community requested. and the community wants things that mmf can do. stop saying they stole the idea.

LOL. You're saying the row needs to stop, but then you're just continuing it by voicing your own opinion. If a row needs to stop, just say so and say nothing about either of them

"but anyone with an unbiased opinion who has EVER used construct knows it is far from a clone of mmf"

That's an opinion, dear. And of course there will be people who disagree, thus taking the argument further. I'm not quite sure why you've turned this thread into a MMF VS construct war anyway, it's about "Stencyl"

I'm just giving my opinion, same as anyone else here. For the record, I have tried Construct.
I have no intention of getting drawn into some long debate over the merits of Construct/MMF2, so I'll leave it at that.

yes i know. thats what i said.
saying they stole is an accusation. suggesting similarities or differences is an opinion.

how does defending against an accusation like "at least they didn't steal the entire program concept (like Construct did from MMF)." make me the instigator of "a MMF VS construct war" when my preceeding post had NOTHING to do with mmf and had everything to do with stencyl which, like you said, this thread is about, adam? just curious.

Back to the topic in hand - all the videos on the pre-release site have been removed either by the user for violation of terms. seems we'll never get to see it now

I doubt the the program has changed much,
it looks like just a glorified level editor.

"it looks like just a glorified level editor."

That's all most people really want anyway.

That's why RPGmaker is so popular. Sure it usually makes a terribly boring game that's exactly like every other Rpgmaker game, but that's basically how one full on turn-based battle system RPG compares to another one anyways so it works well for fans of that genre.

If there were a complete level creation set which would contain "Stencyls" for the easy creation of each genre, even though those genre games were exactly alike as other games of that same genre, except for storyline and levels built, don't you think people would buy it ?

I do.

I'm thinking of making something like that ... you know how complicated even TGF is to most people ? ... I tried to get my little cousin to make games with it ... he tried it for a few minutes and gave up before he even got started. People, especially children, want instant gratification.

Hell, if Stencyl comes out I'll try it if it's free.
I try most anything that's free for unlimited use.
