Construct 3 release 29 was just, um… released. This release brings 22 changes and fixes, including the App Build Service now being live. The App Build Service enables you to create Android APK files, as well as the option to generate an XCode project for iOS deployment. Construct 3 is a cross platform HTML5 powered 2D game engine that recently moved to run directly in the browser. If you are new to Construct 3, we recently released this hands-on video which is also embedded below. Right now is a great time to check out Construct 3 as it is currently available for free for a brief period of time for the C3Jam on Newgrounds.
