Creating game objects

To put it simply, everything in Construct 2 is a game object. This can range from the things that are visible on screen, for example, sprites, text, particles, and the sprite font, to the things that are not visible but are still used in the game, such as an array, dictionary, keyboard, mouse, gamepad, and many more.

To create a new game object, you can either double-click anywhere on a layout (not on another object already present), or you can right-click on your mouse and select Insert new object. Doing either one of these will open an Insert New Object dialog, where you can select the object to be inserted.
