Thank you for you appreciative comments
The really encourage me in order to keep working in more tutorials.
I didn't notice any issues with the english, except that once you referred to IndieLib as 'him', which made me think of anthropomorphic graphics libraries which was cute enough that you shouldn't fix.
Haha, I love "him" so much.
There are some serious challenges with producing appropriate artwork for a method such as this, and Aquaria manages this perfectly. That said, you also have to be respectful of how the artwork gets used, and some pieces may only have a small threshold of how much they can be rotated or scaled before it harms the illusion.
That's true. In fact I tried myself to render some 3d sprites myself, but they were looking quite awful (you can see them in the first screenshot). You really need a great artist for this kind of map system.
I haven't read through this thing yet, but I just wanted to say you did an awful lot of work for this and it is very much appreciated.
Thank you! In fact, I thought this tutorial was going to be really useful for lot of people, but looking at Google Analytics, I realized that the tetris tutorial was by far a lot more visited. I suppose this tutorial is too much concrete, that only few people may e interested in, and Tetris is something more general, that quite lot of beginners are looking for.
