Project1: Update1

Hey guys, I just started a new project called Project1 using the 2D game engine Game Maker. This is what I have after spending my spring break following tutorials, teaching myself code, and making all the art from scratch.

No combat yet but I have 3 levels that are accessible to each other via warp triggers. Levels fade in when you enter them. NPCs track the hero sprite when within a certain distance. And the basics are set up for a dialogue system.

The game is a side scrolling fighter like Castle Crashers but has open-world navigation like Legend of Zelda. Each level has 6 potential layers of parallax motion when the camera moves.

If you'd like to check out what I have so far, you can download the exe by clicking this link.

I am intrigued, but too pretentious (or just lazy?) to install Windows. Do you think you could whip up some youTube goodness of what you've been working on?

That's a good idea. I'll start working on that soon.
