Still alive, still not doing much as far as game programming goes.
A fellow emailed me awhile ago about a randomly generated 2D side-scroller game he was working on. He mailed me a month or so ago, but I just now checked that account and found it. The game looks pretty decent, and I like his ideas for generating the levels. The jump and movement mechanics of a side-scroller add some interesting and complicated little twists to level generation, and I've thought about it before, but I like the way he goes about it. Take a look at his page here and see what you think. Looking at it has gotten me back in the mood to fiddle around with level generation again.
