hI rober the tower it´s in 3D, or it´s only 2D... very nice...

It does look like 3d on cell shade, if it is 2d, it is a great work shading it that way, it has depth.

2d. :) A few paths in Gimp, the rest is pixel work.

Edit: to get the new video on top of the new page. ;)

Gasp! it looks wonderful.
What about adding more animation to the mage? like a more complex jumping/suffering anims?
More paralax levels maybe?

Heck, it really looks great! The fireballs make me wish I could do the same!(while visiting my bank manager...)

Thank you, thank you. *bows* This is more or less what you will be playing (if you like) after the 28th. More parallax is definitely the plan, you may have noticed that right now there is no real background except for the mountains. I'm thinking three more layers with clouds, stars, moons, etc. Maybe a completely out of place spaceship. :) As for sprite animation, it may be a good idea to adjust the jumping animation according to up/down direction. But I'm not focusing on that right now. Actually, real life will be back the coming days. Think I'll carry my sketchbook around and see if I can come up with some nice background drawings.

Looks so sweet!

My only request would be icons rather than text for pickups. In fact no text, the better for the younger tester. ;)

Noted. Thanks for the reminder, I had that on one of my lists but kinda forgot about it.

So, today's the 28th, day of demo release just for this forum. :) It's my birthday, which is why I chose this date, but that also means I have a party tonight and work this afternoon as well, so it's possible the release will be tomorrow because I'm fairly busy. Maybe not, I'm not sure. Either way, a link will appear in this thread within 48 hours.

Thank you all for the birthday wishes. :) Yesterday my hangover was quite bad, so I released the demo today. It's over in the bonus forum, mainly because I want this release to be for a select group of people. So go check it out if you can. :)

I really like the look of this game. Can't wait to have a play on it. Are you going to have weather in the game like rain which could bring out sea monsters as you travel on your boat?

Thank you. :) Sea monsters are likely to be implemented, had crossed my mind. Rain, don't know. Snow, yes. If I can code it right.

Today I did some work on the graphics side of things. A stone bridge to be specific.

From the top of my head...

Up: Collision detection using ANIMCOLL, and adjusting the y position until ANIMCOLL returns false.
Down: If ANIMCOLL is false, move y position down until true.
There is a margin in between where no checks are made (I think) otherwise he'd be moving up and down all the time giving a bit of a jittery movement. I had to fiddle around a bit with values before I got it right.
