Game level editor
Here is the article 15 about my series of posts about the game creation.
If you missed it, check out the previous part.
Here is a screenshot of the current state of the game. The important changes are:
- Level Editor
- Add emissive red when the player is hit
- New semi wall structures and outside/inside ambient
Check out the new youtube video presenting the level editor and gameplay:
I saw that the randomness of the mazes are fun, but i was not able to get real levels as i wanted, so i made a level editor to get a better gameplay.
Currently the level editor allows to:
- Define the environment: outside or inside
- Enable/Disable cells
- Add ennemys and patrol points
- Add various objects like weapons or chests
- Add closed doors with droppable keys
The levels are now all static, no randomness at all.
Note that the editor is only made with html/js, and when the user press the save button, a file is generated but not saved anywhere. The user as to save it directly in the game directory.
The sources are now directly available on github.
I created the tag "blog-21" to be able to reach the state of the project corresponding to this blog post.
You can also test the demo of the latest state of the project.
A demo of the editor is also available.
