Listening to: Smokey Robinson - Hey Jude
So I'm starting a new comic strip about my interactions as a super grumpy owner and my cat, Mr. Peterson. I'm contemplating on whether or not I should release it on a regular schedule or do a bunch first and then release it at once. We'll see.
In other news, I'm currently working on Poot Poot 2: The Cheddar Scare, a horizontal shmup like R-Type or Gradius. I was able to get the initial Poot Poot sprites created and a basic game engine of flying him around and shooting.
I even have some basic parallax scrolling going on with some enemies that fly in a sine wave motion (your classic "first enemy" in these games). I may consider a balance between upgrades on the fly and permanent upgrades you get by using "Moneys" that you pick up throughout the levels.
