Roguelike 3 lighting

I added a smoothing pass over the lighting calculation to smooth the lights of the current tile by looking at its neighbors.  this way you get a nice soft shadow instead of a hard one. I think it looks better. It's not perfect though. some corridors cast a darkness onto lighted tiles.. but for now this is fine.

Also limited the calculating of tile lighting to the tiles surrounding the player, not the complete map at once (2nd half of the video)
The players light is a bit less bright now,  so when you enter a room with torches, you notice stuff getting brighter and not just 'all tiles are bright now'

I wanna try and do some level generation for my next experiment..

Roguelike 2

Listening to some 'epic music' while coding to set the mood.

I've changed some bits here and there.. added smooth camera movement,  player can see a lot further, which looks nicer.
Added some really dumb monsters and created a raycast fuction that works with my grids.
So the monsters will check if player is in range and if they can see the player (walls block their view)

So I was without inspiration again and complained about it to a collegue of mine, he then suggested I make a roguelike game...

Ok, let's give that a try :)

here's what I have so far:

Got a little more work done on my platformer. Using a rigidbody. but i want to add some inertia to the walking... maybe gonna use a character controller... we'll see..
It looks like this now :)

Blazin' trails

Wow, over a year since the last update, and the worst thing is,  I haven't really done any work on the partygame..  sigh.

But now I'm working on a remake of the classic C64 title Trailblazer

Today I've fiddled around a bit with character movement and animation for my platformer game.

I would love to have a character like in Tiny Open world  but alas, I suck at 3d modeling, so my basic characters will have to do for now :)

After the I made some simple animations for idle, walk, run, jump and doublejump,  I quickly setup the animator states and blendtree and added them to my (very basic) charactercontroller and lookie here, we have a little moving jumping guy who can also double jump :)

Redid some work on my character prefabs and anims. they now point in the actual transform.forward direction. So my rotations in game can be a bit more logical :)

Started work on a new game, but didn't have a lot of time for it, so I got as far as a simple setup with some players that can move around.

I'm thinking of making a coop platform or something? got inspired by the Game grumps playing Mario World 3d or maybe a shooter.. I don't know yet.  suggestions welcome :)
