No, I started off wanting to use text mode, but I quickly discovered Byond had some limitations with that.

So I started off working on it using a 8x8 Roguelike tileset I found online and it eventually evolved in to the 12x12 tiles you see there currently.

Some of the tiles have their colors changed or their positions slightly shifted when the world boots up to try and make it look more appealing (in my opinion) and a lot of the extra stuff like flowers and bushes are also generated the same when based on specific tiles, like flowers will never generate on dirt.
I did something similar with 8x8 icons a looooong time ago for the exact same reason. People from back then might remember me always coming up with these really cool text-mode games because I absolutely suck at doing any meaningful kind of art, but I kept running into places where icons and their associated features (like pixel offsets, we didn't have much more than that for manipulation that wasn't icon math) were a lot better.

So that's the route I went. I can't wait to see how your project progresses because it's the kind of game style that hits me right in the "wannaplays".

Yeah, understandable. I now realize that the slanted edges of the roofs should have given it away :)


Dismemberment is a thing i'm proud of with this project so far. It's a spiritual successor to Feed, but it is not Feed. I have a friend who's doing artwork for the project, but atm i'm using old feed assets as placeholders.

Anyhow, weapons and projectiles are loosely functional. Much less convoluted than my previous jabs at weapon/projectile setups. Everything is running at a smooth 60fps and I'm trying to take this project slowly. I rushed the framework for previous projects and it always came back to haunt me. Don't wanna do that again. Either way, i'm satisfied with how things are progressing and it's proving to be a fun project!


Lose your arms? Darn, looks like you ain't shootin' nothing.
I'm still alive and still working on Dark Star btw.

The overlay work is really cool.

Remaking PWO RP, an old RP game from 2010ish!

That's some nice pixel art there.

It's a really nice set. I believe that's MalibuDarby's work:

Ah, thanks for the link. Would love to see some dungeon crawl stuff like that. I'll have to crawl around itch.io sometime to look around.
It's very beautiful, happen to catch it on sale so woo.

Moar autotile progress, ripping them manual sucks butt.

That ain't workin
That's the way you do it
Tiles for nothing,
they connect for free



Some new additions to the game: Control Panels.

Control Panels allow the player to change different aspects of the current sector or subsector they're in during gameplay.

As seen in the video, purple control panels affect gravity, allowing you to switch it on, or off. This allows for much easier traversal of the station in situations where normal movement is blocked or heavily hampered.

Air panels marked in blue and also spotted in the video briefly, are used to add air to the environment. The player's suit is pressurized so a lack of air doesn't cause too much issue, but it does force them to move more slowly, as the suit's internal scrubbers can only push out enough clean air for simple movements (no sprinting)!

Yellow power panels, not shown in the video, control the electrical power to the area and must be accessed in order to repair, prevent, or cause power outages to specific areas. Is the security system blocking your way? Power it down and continue on freely.

In some cases, a combination of these may be required in order to progress.

Some other changes include some added audio for the panels and the lift. Still working on improving things though.
