Steam wants me to make fuckhuge images for everything

I almost feel guilty for scaling this sprite 1800%

Anonymous said: do you think you'd ever allow a choice of starting weapon for cavern kings? I feel having a random starting weapon is a bit pointless as it just prompts players to keep restarting the game until they get their desired weapons so why not allow a choice?

I’m unsure at the moment, I want to encourage players to try things outside of their comfort zones to see what they can accomplish, but it seems most players just complain when they don’t get precisely what they want.

I’ve seen SO MANY players suicide when they get the TNT Sling. THEY DON’T EVEN TRY. The TNT Sling is amazing but it just takes a bit of practice, they don’t even give it the time of day.

I dunno, it sorta bothers me that there are people who sit there restarting the game over and over or killing themselves just to get a certain gun, but then again I shouldn’t be enforcing my opinion on them either.

There’s a chance I’ll add weapon selection at a later point but don’t quote me on that ):

What the Perlin noise junk from yesterday led up to. Could use some improvement but it’s close enough

I don’t know how Perlin noise is supposed to work, but I winged it and the results are kinda cool. This is my progress over the last hour or two.

I tend to reblog fanart on the Cavern Kings website :)

everythingfallout said: Hey your blog is pritty cool I was wondering I want to start to get into game development myself. It's been a dream if mine for as long as I can remember. But I have no idea where to start. Do you think that you could help me or tell me where to go or what to do.

I wrote a FAQ ages ago to address this inquiry but it’s probably extremely outdated by now considering how quickly things change these days. You can give it a look-see and see if anything peaks your interest:

There’s also this video that might be helpful for people in your position:
