Well, its about time I started one of these. Been working on the project for a while and I finally have stuff to show off and things to talk about. Not sure what how technical I’ll be getting but It will be fun to record my progress none the less.
So what is it that I’m talking about?
Making a 2D shooter/platformer is what I’m doing with my free time these days. For whatever odd reason I’ve made some great strides the last month or so. This project went from something that was just sort of fun to work on to something that can maybe be played one day. As to what I envision this to be like, a fast paced 2D platformer with physics and guns… and explosions. I also have some other things planned, but no sense in getting ahead of myself yet.
Here are some shots from last few ScreenshotStaturdays on reddit:
I also have a mapmaker working but I pretty much broke it when I changed my rendering code. So the mapmaker is going to have to wait a bit. One more thing, the code is open source I got a git repo at github.
