I gave a workshop about making this exact game at the TAG Lab at Concordia! Learn some Construct2 visual coding basics while making this Dress Up Cat!!

There are moments where I walk away from the computer to speak with the workshop participants, sorry for that! Otherwise, you should be able to make this tutorial in less than an hour. It's also Windows-only (because of Construct2).

A hands-on, beginner-friendly workshop! In less than two hours, learn how to:

  • handle art assets in Construct2's interface (including dealing with animation frames!),
  • use basic global and instance variables to lock your drag-and-dropped clothing into place,
  • implement sound and a little bit of "juice" to your interactive doll,
  • add a screencapping function for your players to share their outfit coordinates!

Assets to make this tutorial (sound and art), as well as a complete example file can be found here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0L3cFdGyzPSckU3ek1nQ09EVW8/view?usp=sharing

All of the above, bundled with a Construct2 installation file here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0L3cFdGyzPSR3Zrc...
