development updates in Off Topic
Toadfish, the bosses just had more attacks but they didn't do anything that was intelligent. They just wandered in a small area and used their attacks when a player was nearby. You didn't have to figure out how to beat a boss, you just needed a lot of potions.
#5)It seems like making slopes wouldn't need you to change the library. Also i'm sure it'd be very useful, plus every popular side scroller game has some sort of slope in it ya know?
I am not entirely sure what type of music you'd be looking for. I play the piano/keyboard, although I am still learning, and recently made this. If this fits your idea musical style for your game, I could possibly come up with some more pieces.
Diablo wasn't a very fun game to play alone, you know. Now that I think about it most fun was derived from building up your character and playing in multiplayer than actually fighting the monsters. If killing stuff was fun it's because of the loot.
I think you should strive for getting variety in more than one way, and not trust your level design to hold the game on its own.
This brings up another point: I'm not really sure what it'll be that makes the game fun. Not that it has to be just one thing, but it can't be everything and I've already ruled some things out. I've decided that the character customization will be kept simple, but I guess I need to sit down and finish planning things so I don't end up with something overly simple.
I'm not sure how well I explained it earlier. I was typing on my phone which makes me often be brief. I'd like for each dungeon to have some enemy AI that's unique to the dungeon. In each dungeon there'll be something that makes the player say "oh, I've never seen an enemy do that before!", but I think it's overly optimistic to say that I have enough tricks up my sleeve to pull that off for each dungeon.
Ok Forum_Account. I thought i would make a few more tracks to you, so you could have a variaton of soundtracks.
If you are intrested, i could try create sound effects for you. nothing to advanced ofcourse, but it could help in some cases! :)
