A new old adventure!

Hey, howdy?

Memories... nostalgia... dilemma...

Well, it's an old stuff of me... Why am I posting this? Well, I worked a lot on this back then and I think it was pretty cool. Looked like Megaman X, worked like Megaman X... except it has some glitches and I've never finished it. I created all the background graphics in Photoshop. And while I didn't respect the SNES palette I think it looks acceptable for SNES aesthetics.

I am kinda nostalgic. Game Maker was my first game development tool! I got 4.3 from a computer magazine's CD. And I was kinda pissed as child that it was 2D only. Like kids like modern things. THREE DEE! YEAAAH! I learnt the lesson. All that glitters is not gold. And hyper-super mega good graphics doesn't make the game.

NES style game in Unity - Part 8 - Storing the levels!

Hello and welcome to the 8th part of my thoughts on creating an NES style game with Unity!
I'm still at the beginning of developing my game. Before going into it I want to do some preparations and also learn some new things. My newest  idiocy is about storing the levels. So originally I started to create my levels in Tiled which is an absolutely amazing editing tool for tilemap based levels. So sounds perfectly ideal for me. But there are a few things that it can't store. So after reading a lot about NES game development I was thinking about storing the levels the same way as NES did.
