No. 33: Fly

Lately I've been slow on updating, this is because I've been trudging through reorganizing my code, moving resources, deleting extra old things and dealing with the hassle of the kind of thing that can happen when you do that. For the most part, it's all done, and I can finally start on the menu and file system. What this means for you is a smaller final filesize, less memory usage, and what it means for me is a greater sense of ease when adding features.

As for that little picture up there, it's a picture of the 33rd (in alphabetical order) enemy, the Fly. Whereas houseflies also walk, Flies do nothing but fly. Green eyed flies will fly away when you run up to them, whereas red eyed flies will dive at you, presumably because they're hungry. That little graphic is also part of a game extra, but until I get it ironed out I don't wanna talk too much about it.

So! Sorry for the lack of posting lately, but hopefully I'll have more stuff to show you soon.

Dammit, I had a total Japantime flashback right here.

And what you could do, if you want, is just to throw out a small amount of enemy sprites for fanart reference, and include the fanart as the in-game graphics. Maybe as collectable cards or something that give power-ups, or just interesting tidbits.

Awesome. Can we expect to see lens flare as well? Looks like there might actually be more outdoor (i.e.not enclosed) environments that I had previously thought.
