I recently had some time to work on this again:
  • maximum drawing distance increased
  • Several improvements to editor layout
  • Improved the camera system, the camera now shows more of what is ahead of the player
Also New actions for events ( like manipulating a block )
And of course bugfixing.

The editor has been improved, but there is still so much left to improve
in terms of layout and useability.
Aside from that all this game needs is content.
The improvements on the editor should allow me to
Produce new maps faster.

If someone wants to try the current state send me a pm
and i will send you a download link for the win version.
A gamecontroller or a good keyboard is recommended for testing.

Sounds good if you could PM a link Nabz, I'd appreciate it.
Cheers,

Hi, I fooled around a little more with my engine during this year.

* Added some lawn back into the engine.
* Rewrote the engine to support n layers instead of only 2 ( plan is to use this for caves in the future )
* Improved collision with diagonals, now friction is correctly applied here.
* Enemies which should not go over cliffs now detect this always correctly, before those enemies could get stuck on cliff edges and block edges.
* Improved collision with spheres, now friction is correctly applied here.
* Coins collected are now remembered for each map in the save files, saving takes a little longer now.
* Improved transparency check when camera moves ahead of the player while running.
* Reduced inertia for player when turning.
* Increased acceleration for player when running.
* added new available view ranges ( huge and very huge ), so you can see more of the map. Thanks for removing the object limit in the latest steam release Gernot.

Currently in Progress:

* Player editor for configuring player basic behaviour, selecting models etc.
* Support for multiple Campaigns.

Also I am in the process of rebranding this game ( new player model), new storyline, maybe new features, If anyone has some ideas I would gladly look into those, maybe someone
on this forum wants to collaborate on this? ( Just looking for ideas, not something like "plz make all models and sprites for my game"  ;) )

Aweseome. Good to see, you're still at it.
I'd personally go with a more toonish style for the main character. Big eyes, large head. See my Wumbo e.g.:

Great! On the visuals, brighter colors might be a good idea. I kind of agree about the main character, Gernot´t idea should help making it stand out.
