New video

New video's up!



See if you can spot the food I missed, and how you get there

I improved my video capture workflow, more info here for those who are into behind-the-scenes stuff.

I'm also locking down what I'm going to do for public testing. I'll be running the first batch of testing pretty soon, after I finish the first chapter. Then a second batch when the game is almost finished. It will be done through TestFlightApp.

Will open for sign ups very shortly!

Level editor

Hey guys, for those who showed an interest, here's a quick snoop around the Food Run level editor. It shows a level being created from scratch and then tested in the game.

Part 1:


Part 2:


More details, as usual, at my development blog.

Just watched your two clips about the level editor. It made me want to design my own level! Although the level editor is crying out for a tool-bar for adding elements.

Such a cute looking game.

Yeah I would say that its quite far off being something I could distribute widely, but it's enough for the game for now. I'm really just adding features as I need them. If I were to make it available generally, I'd have to bullet-proof the thing, add more features and a whole load of polish. But that option is certainly there for the future.

Very soon. The hamster wheel is spinning as we speak.

I'll make sure to reserve a space for you if you've already shown an interest in this thread.
