@SeriousITGuy, you're welcome. And thank YOU for reading my articles and dev log. Glad you've enjoyed it. :)
As for the code... As I've said before, only the best parts get posted. My code has some quickly written parts which kinda work but are not good. I'd fix them if I had time... but I don't always have enough.
I plan to write articles about my engine's structure (some of it can already be found in my dev logs and some will be in "Using Lua in Practice" series)

@Tank, thanks!

@Hapax, thanks! :D
And it's not even its final form of cuteness. I will post even more cuter portrait soon.  ;D

@shadowmouse, didn't think of a name for it yet. I need to come up with something clever to show its true character. ;)

Ha-ha. I still don't know the limit of the cuteness I can make! :D

Maybe when you finish the game once, you unlock cute mode and all characters become kittens.

Why everyone on the internet freaks out about cats, I don't get it :D
( ok from a game designer point of view a cat could make up a very cool character, something like the cat from Alice in Wonderland :D )

@Elias: Hey it's your code you can do whatever you want. If you plan on writing articles about your engine it is more than enough for me to study on ;)

@Tank, that's a good idea for a spin off game! :D

@shadowmouse, that would be cool, but just imagine how much of the artwork I'd have to create!

@SeriousITGuy, cats are cute. People like cute things. ;D
The cat has even more value from the game design point. (It's a secret for now!)
As I write "Using Lua with Practice" articles, I realize that Lua connects a lot in my engine and that's why looking at Lua/C++ stuff I've got is going to give you a pretty good idea of what's going on it my engine. :)

(P.S. I wish there were some good articles/books like this. Game Engine Architecture is the closest I've seen to what I need so far.)

Did you not see it?


It's bordering on being as cute as:

Is it related to Egypt?  :D

@Hapax, nope :P

I've spent 3 hours drawing carpets today. They're pretty hard to draw (especially the round one!)
The stone wall tile was drawn a while ago and I've finally found a place to use it. I'm a lot more satisfied with the look now. (compare it to a previous screenshot!)


Another carpet:

That stone and carpet combine really well with the general theme of the place, I think they make it look a lot less generic. Just to clarify, it wasn't generic the first time (especially because of the cat), but it is now even more not generic.

That looks so cozy that I immediately want to play some x-mas tunes and drink tea while watching the snow outside...just that there's none. Looks nice, I really like your art style :)

@shadowmouse, thanks! I was trying out some colors (I wanted to see if the place would look better with more of them). Turned out quite good :)

@Tank, thanks! After reading your post I've decided to add some cozy music to this place. I've already written bossa nova track for my game and I think it may fit nicely here. :)

By the way, my awesome GF made this for me!

Let's hope you don't change the graphics again!
That's right; today, I looked at your progress album...

Ha-ha, well, I can make Re:creation Woolly World now!

What do you think of the progress album?

I found it interesting. It's comforting to know how often people change their minds during development!
Still, think of how far along the game would be now if you'd've put all the time into the game development instead of drawing new graphics  ;D
