If you are wishing to get into game development but like myself can not passably wrap your mind around even a rudimentary programing language, Construct 2 is for you. I was suggested that the best place to start when learning how to make games is to start with 2d and once you understand that move onto 3d. The most outstanding feature of C2 is its graphical programing. Here you can see what you are working with laid out in a easy to understand format. In this regard it can be compared to Game Maker; however there is a lot more that you can do with C2 given the nature of the engine.
For those who want to take the time to learn there is a Free version that is kind of like a unlimited trial. Keep in mind that you are limited to 100 events and some of the more advanced features like family's are locked. There are two levels of paid licence, a full and a business one. The Full has all the features the business but the one advantage of the business that you do not have to pay royalties to the makers of C2 for using there engine commercially. NOTE that the full licence can also be used to make commercial games but you are limited to $1000 dollars in revenue before you have to buy a business licence. Which costs much less than that.
If you are looking to make your start in development I cant recommend this highly enough.
