Eagle Island's world is formatted similarly to a metroidvania. It's easy to generate a procedural map of rooms, but carving the terrain out inside each individual room is a bit trickier.

I thought I would share my method here with you today!

I won't go in to programming techniques and I assume a basic knowledge of how to set up a tile based platform game engine. If that sounds too advanced, feel free to read on anyway. There's always something to learn!

This method is suitable for all engines and frameworks.

Cool tutorial, for my game i ended up using pre-made templates for a bunch of stuff. But now i really want to try this technique out(for my next game probably). Thanks for sharing!
