Check it!

Howdy folks,

So far, for the latest version of the tileset I've had 148 downloads, that’s pretty phenomenal from my point of view and I'm proud that so many people have taken an interest in my little project. I've had a few people get in touch to let me know that they are working on something, and one Heroic Champion has even been sending me regular builds of their game!

Over at  Droidgnome Cursed Dungeons is gearing up for its first official release, and while still in the very early stages I think it’s shaping up to be a pretty tidy roguelike for Android. Droidgnome has done a great job of implementing touch screen controls and a nice minimal interface (half the battle for a mobile game) and solid level generation that throws up a nice variety of levels. You should go check it out, and if you have an Android device pile on the pressure for that public release.

It has been incredibly helpful for me to see the tiles in action, seeing the sprites shuffle around, watching fires crackle and making doors and chests open and close has been more gratifying than a grown man should admit. It’s also given me a chance to see whets missing from the tileset and what needs more work. All in all, its a world away from staring at my static Photoshop files for hours on end.

So people, what are you working on? Show us your screenshots, send us your early builds, blog it, leave a comment or send me an email. I’d love to see what your making of the graphics and to hear what you need to complete the epic games of wonder I know you have hidden away.

Remember folks - Sharing is caring!
