Game Templates for Windows 8

These templates, enhanced to support Windows Store & Windows 8 features, are based on the default templates included with Construct 2 and are posted here with permission from Scirra. The original templates can be found in Construct 2 via the New Project dialog or in the Construct/templates/ directory.

To support publishing to the Windows Store, each template minimally features the following:

  • Windows 8 object. Test mode and about/settings/privacy are set to off.
  • Pause layer
  • Windows 8 snapped view support that shows the Pause layer and pauses the game
  • Touch object and touch input support (Note: some already had this)
  • Adjusted project properties

For a guide to publishing Construct-based games to the Windows Store, see "How to make a Windows 8 app".


Provided as samples to demonstrate Windows 8 support, here are templates:

  1. Auto-Runner Win8.capx - Side-scroller with player constantly running, having to jump between platforms.
