So I have improved on my prototype a little bit. You can change the size of the conga line by adding and removing friends. You can change the light level of the cave around you. Food is counted, and the more friends you have around, more food you spend. Friends and Walls block your path. The game loads the map from a text file inside the jar (not sure this was a good idea).
It is far from a ¨game¨, but it is shaping up — this is fun!
Now to add goals, maze events, your powers. I´m not sure I´ll have time to polish up the graphics and make a decent opening screen, but for a first time game project, with a library I never used before, I getting quite happy with the result!
Oh, and this!
