Picking away…

So the new implementation of the menu system is now completed and I’m pretty happy about it. There’s a few things I want to fine tune and ultimately add to it, but it has already surpassed the previous version by leaps and bounds, including code length. I was a bit worried as it felt like a big step backwards, but I set forth a plan and executed quite well.

I also started on making tiles, and more tiles. I’d like to say I’m getting a bit better at it, but to be honest, I don’t think so. I tend to over modify until I ultimately delete half the time. I’ve done a lot of research the last few days in terms of looking mostly at examples and some rudimentary tutorials on pixel art. It helps for sure, but it’ll be a grind for the long haul. I’ve got the first area planned out, just adding things to it before some real game development can begin.

I’m hoping the next update will show some fruits of the labor, but I’d rather under commit and over deliver.
