WOW. That was quick.
So, it's been awhile since I've had an update to post here. Plenty more design ideas, including something I'm calling "genre-progressive" gameplay that I'm sure many of you have heard about. But that's not what I'm here to post.
After 2 years of grinding my face against the brick wall, and with some programming-related tutorial/help from my buddies here...I'VE FINALLY FINISHED MY LEVEL-GENERATION ALGORHYTHM.
Right now, all you can do is move the little adventurer dude around by the arrow keys, but if you wanna pretend there's platformer gravity involved, let's say you can jump 4-4.5 tiles up and across; and run or roll up/down curves and inclines ala Sonic.
Holey adodectomy, that took way too much troubleshooting. I suppose next thing to concern myself with now is starting/exiting scenes and room transitions, and then platforming physics.
This is nothing compared to what I'm seeing produced, but just that feeling of being able to knock that off of my to-do list is effing INCREDULOUS.
