Time to Let the Cat Out of the Bag

To shed some light on our current project. Remember how I said that I was working with the overhead portion of the engine. Well here it is.....

The current project running name is Tik Tok Tank. It is an overhead arcade style shooter. Featuring:
Weapon and player based power ups.
Enemy spawners.
An over world.
Randomly generated dungeons.
Custom created enemy bases.
Crazy ass bosses.
And tons of different enemy types.

So basically you will be given a certain amount of life to search the over world for enemy dungeons and bases. While on the over world you will be fighting off enemies of various difficulties. after finding a dungeon or base it then turns into smaller maps containing 4 levels then a boss fight. Like stated in features, what makes the dungeons different than the bases. Simple, bases are premade levels with randomly placed enemies and power ups. Dungeons are completely randomly generated. Cool thing is, no one game will be 100% identical.

So what is the progress, A lot is actually working but enemy AI is right now kinda bad. So that is the current big task. We will be posting some video footage and images of its current status. We may also post a percentage meter showing where everything is sitting as far as completion wise.

well for now that's a rap
