Although it feels like progress is slow, I've actually managed to get quite a few things made to the game.
Got the music for stage 2 (and 5, and 8 and so on, I think) from Johan, so I implemented that.
Got a few new enemies in. And we now have "energy dots" as well.
Posted a twitter post the day before yesterday, with a animated gif showing off some of what's in there now. Just hit me that it didn't contain the elemental attack I've made. Well, maybe in the next one, then.
Turns out you can access the twitter videos directly, so here's the animated gif...in almost full screen!
And here's a still from a day later version:
Will try to focus on getting the elemental attack upgrade/pickup system in place/figured out next.
Did I say I commissioned someone to do the cover art? Looking forward to that as a kid before Christmas.
Aaaand, at last, I think we have a name for the game! We will let it sink in a bit before revealing it, I think. Could turn out it sucks...
