World Generator

I’m releasing some SOURCE CODE for my metroidvania world generator thing. LOOK HERE IS THE SOURCE CODE Flashpunk Demo Alternative content

Gum FlashPunk Demo

Hey look, this post has been updated with source. SOURCE CODE Flashpunk Demo Alternative content


One of these (incredibly simple demos) is using Flashpunk, the other is using Pixelizer. Okay, so, it’s just a button ( I actually intended to duplicate the functionality in Pixelizer’s equally simple GUI example as closely as possible ) but the important thing is that it’s apparently identical.

That understandably complicates things. The best attempt at this I’ve found on the internet thus far belongs to this guy. I followed the same path as him, and I discovered that he had made one crucial mistake. […]

Been a while

So it’s been a while since I wrote anything here. I wrote a whole series of articles about a scripting language I probably won’t use for anything over on See it over there I don’t know what’s going to happen to Gnomes. I released a ‘build demo’ of it, but nobody liked it or cared. I had been working on a single player AI demo, but it’s buggy as all fuck. And my […]
