Haven't Posted a gif in about a week, so I wanted to give everyone...
a TASTE of what I am COOKING up!
Since last we spoke I setup a "paper" scrum board at home above my desk, And sure enough this mess of post-it-notes has helped me get a lot of my thoughts into a more organized form. I've since been able to come up with a feasible plan, significantly reduce my scope, and make a venture back into the 8 bit era. About 2 weeks into this exploration and I have already a lot to show for it. Looking to get a Static one level prototype out before March 2015 is up. Until then enjoy the meats and spikes and poorly animated weird looking space character.

Really quickly, just wanted to put up a pic of some sketches I am making. I am testing a method of splitting the player character into multiple parts... and I think I can cheat a gun toting hero this way by making him without arms. Then I can split the arms and weapon out into a front sprite. Super imposing a that sprite of heroes main arm + hand, weapon and offhand (with no arm). Using the right animation I think the player wont even miss the "hidden" arm.
We shall see... I also have been working on a 2d tilemap system for this prototype and I completed json tile map level data serialization last night! I used AngularJS on a web app to output the json data, and I feed that into data into C# scripts at runtime to populate the level from a tile set.

Some of you might know I have a 2015 resolution / goal of maintaining a 100% Git activity for the whole year. Presently I have kept up a streak of 48 days. Last night after I committed and pushed my daily work I went to bed assuming everything was peachy. I didn't realize my contribution from my recently formatted laptop, did not contain my correct GitHub username - resulting in losing my streak. Clearly an unacceptable outcome, I decided to hack my way back in time... using Git configuration variables.
(the bad commit)
123 --- ABC --- DEF
- So I reset my last commit (allowing me to retain local changes)
- Properly set my git username
- Added my changes once again
- And temporarily set my GITAUTHORDATE & GITCOMMITTERDATE on one line with the new commit statement
$ git reset [ABC Sha]
$ git add .
$ GIT_AUTHOR_DATE='Fri Feb 06 21:34 2015 -0500' GIT_COMMITTER_DATE='Fri Feb 06 21:34 2015 -0500' git commit -am "added basic door functionality"
