Palette widget and improved color editing. Creating and editing 8-bit indexed (256 color) sprites. Still to go: Reworking undo/redo system to support multiple sprites and palette [...]

I’ve finished LEVEL UP! prototype, and made a demo you can download. Here’s a video: Also, you can buy LEVEL UP! now for just $5 and get free updates up to the release version. I’m now improving Sproxel so I can make all those numerous voxel blocks for LEVEL UP! levels, and more enemies too.
Finally, some enemies to kill and be killed by Also, a lot of “invisible” code improvements. Things I still need to do before I can release first pre-alpha demo: “LEVEL UP!” elevator effect. Some UI to select upgrades between levels. Some level design. Technical improvements – all voxels are rendered dynamically now, which is very [...]
Finally, character control and voxel destruction are implemented! Next: some enemies to blast holes in.
LEVEL UP! is a crazy mix of side-scrolling platformer/shooter and some role-playing elements. I’m going with “new retro” style for it, for several reasons. So, I decided to try voxels (3D pixels), and it turned out quite well. Special thanks to Sproxel – it’s in early development, but already very useful. Coming soon: character control [...]
