Hey, all. Hope you've been well! I've been trying my best to update this journal at least every couple weeks and it turns out it been over a month since the last update. Well, here I am trying it again! lol :lol: Time moves so fast!!

The truth is that I don't want to spam you all with the same information, but I also want to have a BIT of a regular update schedule. Keeps everyone 'in the know', so to speak. :)

Level 1-25 - GB GREEN by MichaelCrichlow

So, where am I right now with the game? Well, I'm still working on the mechanics for World Two. These take a while to create since I have to think through interactions that may happen between any and all objects in the world. So, I'm systematically working though the primary and secondary interactions. Once I'm happy with the general feel of the play-space, I'll add in the new items that I want to introduce in World Two, make sure all THOSE interactions work (and begin to examine the ramifications of those interactions) and THEN I'll start working on Level Design. So, still a little bit of a ways off before I start putting levels together.

Also, World Two introduces enemies (which were not in World One at all), so I'm doing my best to learn how enemies work in a platformer (what makes them fun to shoot, to avoid, why are some enemies fun while others are boring, stuff like that).

tl;dr
So, basically -- still working on design before I start working on Levels. :)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hope you all have been doing well! What are you up to? What are you playing right now? I'm looking forward to 'Metroid: Samus Returns' on Friday! I hope it's good. (It's been getting good reviews, so... fingers crossed. >_< )

Much love and I'll talk to you soon. Cheers! ^_^ :heart: :hug: :heart:

Thanks! Much appreciated! Oh, the game isn't done yet. (not by a long shot) But World One is almost done, which in terms of tone and pacing is a very bvig deal. It's like, "This is what the game will be...just bigger." It helps me to cement more clearly what I want the game to be. :)

Thanks again! Talk to you soon! :D
