Hah, the press page - of course! I'd assumed I'd missed a blog post somewhere, nice catch.

I found the Stencyl in the start of one game (I don't remember the site, sorry, it was one of those with the free arcade games, :))

I don't know if  I am in the right session of forum but I want to say my opinion, of my few days work with Stencyl, I like it a lot but I think are still a program for the developers, as a designer I understand, lines, sharpes, colors, etc. and I can haddle windows similar to windows were existing in Illustrator or in Dreamweaver.

Into Stencyl it's easy to handle the creation of heroes or scene's but (for me) it's so difficult to make necessary things as a health counting & also health bar in the up side of screen, bullet's shooting, score counting, of course it's possible, those part's and action's into the program, I have see many beautiful works but I believe the artist's who create those work's had also and programing knowledge :(

{sorry, about my english and thank's for hear my opinion (read :D) thank's}

Once I decided I was ready to make games, I asked everyone I knew on Tumblr and Twitter to suggest a tool that was good for complete idiots (I probably said "novices") like myself.  Stencyl was the easy winner, with Unity a respectable second.  So I searched for Stencyl and here I am.

Kongregate... lots of sources there... Damijin, Abigayl, and the Stencyl posts in general. I don't remember what the specific origin was since it was over a year ago now (I take my time sometimes :P).
Don't look to me but rather to the One who is the reason for what I do. :)

If you need help, send me a PM. Even if I haven't been on in the forums in ages, I still receive those messages via email notifications. You can also reply to any of my forum posts, regardless of the age (especially if I created it), and I will likely reply.

If you want to see the programming behind certain types of games, feel free to check out my "Demo-" games on StencylForge (http://community.stencyl.com/index.php/topic,16160.0.html)

Im exclusively a Linux user. So Flash was out of the question for me. Hunted down alternatives via Google and it pulled up Scratch. And when I tried looking for alternatives to Scratch(due to it seeming very lacking on features*). Stencyl came up. Read up on it. Looked over a few YTube vids. And the fact that it is Java based and could be ran on my Linux machine w/o any issues had me sold!

Hi phyerboss! That was the main reason for me to use Stencyl as well :)

(another reason was that at the time I started, I just wanted to play around a bit, I didn't want to learn yet another programming language. In the end I learned AS3 and a tiny bit of Obj-C with Stencyl, and now I'm learning haxe with it... Stencyl was a good decision :) )
