That's good to hear. :) Progress on this has been quiet recently, so I was curious how things were coming.

this was one of the projects that inspired me to try coding, and it's wonderful to see it's still progressing

Well, it's been a pretty long project. Over the Christmas break, I'm going to clear up one of the more-persistant bugs of the engine and finish up the titlescreen menu and savegame system.

At that point, there should be a pretty good basis for a beta release. That should give players a pretty good feel for the mechanics of the game and generate some useful feedback.

It won't be much longer. I'll want to fine-tune the File Select & load/save code, place some exploding barrels, etc. But for the most part it's demo-ready.

To get the program release-ready, I'll be cleaning up a few bugs and image artifacts left over from when the project began.

After that, I'll need to populate each area with citizens to talk to. Since cinematics are going to be a pain, I'll save those for the first major upgrade.

Then, all that's left is boss programming and adding rules stating you must defeat the boss before the next area is available.

Here's a preview of how stats will work.

Leveling up will slowly allocate points/squares toward your stats evenly. (The 3 points for Speed were freebies).

Eating food will allocate circles. These have the same effect as regular points, except they will be taken away if you die or don't eat often. Ex: By eating meat 3 consecutive times, I earned myself 3 ATTACK points. I could move those circles elsewhere by eating differently.

i am exceedingly jealous of that smooth scrolling tile-mapper you have there. is it too highly code specific to ever be used for anything else?
