So it seems quite a few people have been requesting a sequel to my LD31 game, Slimey's Quest, so I'm starting yet another game journal marking my progress with it (I think I have 4 at the moment aha).

One of the things I didn't particularly enjoy about the creation of the first game was the way I had to create the different levels. I had to do everything by hand and one of the things this meant was that I couldn't easily add things. Therefore, the first thing I decided to do was to make a system that could transfer levels for me.

I have written a basic system that stores a level as a string and then changes the level based on this so far.

As you can see, it's far from perfect but has come quite far.

I'll probably make a post explaining the logic behind the transition I use currently after holiday events

Have you noticed those two platforms that transition into the "larger" scene seem to move at varying speeds each transition (the spring seems a little hit or miss too?) Thought I'd point that out.

Anyway... yeah, still fantastic. I would be interested to know how you implemented the logic here and whether you used Stencyl blocks, code or both. Looking forward to seeing where this goes.
Do NOT PM me your questions, because I likely will not respond. If I have replied to your question on the forum, keep using that topic. Thanks!

For everything I just use Stencyl blocks. The transition speeds is I believe due to being unable to do accurate calculations every frame, but I'm not sure entirely tbh.

The first was a blast! I'm looking forward to this sequel.

Fixed up most of the previous issues. I'll probably write a post on my logic sometime later this week.
