I sent some more information to the pixel guy that is also working on the game. I would like to be able to draw stuff myself, but pixel art is kind of hard for me. Maybe I might try if it comes down to it.
Anyway this is a drawing that I sent the pixel guy. I also wrote down in detail some of the things more specifically.
I requested some wall torches and water tiles that are animated.
Then I started drawing out maps of what the levels could look like. I can do the regular 4 way door maps and just have the character walk around, but I thought I would try other types of layouts that are more dynamic.
For example these curvy layouts could be like a cave or something.
Normally you wouldn't think that you can do much with 2 rooms vertical and N rooms horizontal, but actually you can.
I am also wanting to try out vertical rooms too. They would be 2 rooms horizontally and N rooms vertically.
When you combine some stairs that warp you to other levels you can create a pretty convincing illusion that the game is bigger than what it really is and the limitations of smw aren't really noticeable.
This game is going to be awesome!
