I'm really leaning towards either a Mega Man style game or back to the platformer ala Earthworm Jim. Who knows, I still have a little time before my vacation starts to decide. One thing for sure is that I have to be conscious of not going over board because I'm doing the artwork as well.
As of right now, I still need to put together a decent "custom" font engine. I'm not too pleased with any of the current alternatives I've stumbled across. At the end of the day I want to be able to use fonts with outlines and/or gradients or both. Which means that I'm more than likely going to have to implement the font engine the old fashion away and print the ascii characters on a bitmap and traverse the grids.
so if anyone has any better suggestions for fonts then I'm all ears.
Hope you all have a great weekend....now get some coding done!
