That's perfect! (the jumping!) Do you mind asking how you achieved that? I tried fixing the problem of perpetual single wall jumps with forced velocity in the other direction but it did not match the feel.

I have a few ways in mind of how to achieve this but in my head they all seem kind of hacky. :p

Also I love that you're putting so much effort into the polish, it really makes the difference man and I think will pay off big time. I absolutely love the character, and your logo is one of the few, especially of indie games that I really enjoy.

Not sure what polish you mean, but thanks! Basically I just limit the velocity of jumps when you're jumping while holding your cling direction. It's all hacks, but this is my first game and I drunk code A LOT. Let me know if you need more specifics, but I'm in bed atm.

Was it imperative to have a band in the cantina at this point? :p You mentioned "fluff" earlier, which in my head I translated to polish. The areas aren't empty looking, you have nice backgrounds, good particle effects, animated UI elements, etc. I haven't seen any placeholders, etc.

In regards to the wall jump, is it tough to do in the opposite direction? For example in my game if I pressed right unless it was frame perfect the next step the player would no longer be clinging to the wall.

Ohhhhh, yeah I lock X when colliding with walls and release it on jump.

I like that you've introduced random encounters on the world map, as I'm still a bit of a fan of them. It could be a great way to introduce random characters, too.

My goal is to have numerous non-combat encounters that lead you to secret areas/powers.

This is so cool, I really wanna play this game. The random encounters on the map remind me of Breath of Fire IV  Smiley

This oozes style. Great sound effects, art, and humor. I'm just curious why the controls are kb + mouse when you only use the mouse button? It would be a lot more comfortable for me to not have to use the mouse button to attack. Unless you are planning to have the mouse location mean something in the future.

WASD feels more natural to me, but I also put in SOME gamepad support. Holding right click currently locks your facing, but it will be a tool in the future that could be sensitive to location (grappling hook).

Still new and obviously subject to change. thanks for the feedback

Water Levels!



Ever since Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I've wanted to torment gamers with
electric seaweed and terrible physics. I know, my bubbles are horrid.



OH THE HUMANITY!

Tonight I worked on my personal art-style and shifted the character portraits towards goofy. PyxelEdit is pretty rad, btw.

UPDATED TEST BUILD WITH NEW PORTRAITS. Sword got love, but I like the new player portrait the most BY FAR:



That chicken though...

Nice changes, I like no-outline pixel art these days, it comes off cleaner.

Tonight I didn't do anything but create characters. I've got a bunch of them, and I'm making sure that I keep notes so that I can keep dialog consistent. Lil' Peeps is a mutant shapeshifter who pretends to be whatever he thinks you won't kill. Under notes, I wrote, "is a dick."

Lil' Peeps



Isn't he cute?

I created a simple dialog system in the beginning of the project that I made sure could import plain text. That way I can write stupid things like this from my phone when I have inspiration. My intention is to have some simple branching dialog options, but in the end the goal is for me to make dumb jokes and people are more likely to see them if I don't give them choices :D
