Apparently I felt that I didn’t have enough projects underway yet, so here’s another one: RailRunner! As usual, that’s the working title. You can read (a little) more about it on that page, but in essence it’s Railroad Tycoon 3 made more accessible and actiony/competitive. I’ve got a few ideas that feel like they’re pretty original and they’d work well together, but we’ll wait and see.
In other news, Hario is coming along nicely, and you can pretty much run around the level, jump on enemies and die. There’s all the classic terrain types, though items don’t really affect anything yet. Most of the movement and interaction is there though, so the foundation is solidly down for us to start building on. Despite being a ‘practice’ project, I’m starting to think that maybe it won’t be the worst game ever! It’s a very encouraging feeling, and I’m getting increasingly obsessed with working on it, so expect some decent releases soon!
