I added a small video preview of how the game is going so far.  Last night I eliminated over 80 behaviors that I deemed useless or poorly written.  I am going to continue to polish some of the code today.  Also, I am emailing several artist that have caught my eye on twitter.  If anybody has any suggestions or referrals, please let me know!

Thanks friends,
Kyle

I added some before and after pictures of what Ive done over the past week.  Just trying to polish up the games look a little bit.  I am going to start more on the programming side of things now.  I have also reached out to some artists about making some art for the game. 

If you have any questions or maybe wanna be part of the beta testers? let me know!  I would be happy to add you to the loop and get your feed back!

I havent found anything that allows me to beta test for andoid.. (I havent look very hard to be honest, but I plan to).  If your girl downloads the application testflight, and you can message me her email on here or at Greenfordgames@gmail.com.  I will get her device added and send out the Email.

Thanks for the interest in Stencyl too.  I love this program and really until hope I can join the few that make some seriously cool games on here.

Here is a quick preview of the care I am attempting to put into all 100 levels. I want it to be challenging while still offering some fun solutions.

Hey Squeeb, I cannot get it to publish to Android.. I am not sure what's going on.. They changed the Play console quite a bit since last time I used it.  I'll continue to fill out everything and try to get it working though.  Might not be today though

I got the last error figured out when trying to publish to android.  Now i am running into the following when trying to upload the beta section of the play store.

You uploaded an APK with an invalid signature (learn more about signing). Error from apksigner: ERROR (Jar signer CERT.DSA): Failed to verify JAR signature META-INF/CERT.DSA against META-INF/CERT.SF: java.security.InvalidKeyException: The security strength of SHA-1 digest algorithm is not sufficient for this key size

Thats what I thought... But you only need one stencyl.keystore.. and it works for my other games fine.  Im going to keep researching it, I have a few other android users interested too so ill keep you posted if I get it figured out.
