So I'm pretty tired at this point, but I managed to add more things than I had originally hoped at the start of the day. So I created a list for them.
- SDL2.dll fix
pysdl2 couldn't find the SDL2.dll on Windows 7, even though it worked fine on Windows 8 and 10. So I helped the searching a bit.
- Story intro
When you start in the cabin, there's a little bit of text being played that describes the alien invasion. It also tells the player the controls.
This is the biggest feature added today. You now have an inventory and can use food items both outside and inside battle.
Speaking of food items, there are now brown mushrooms hidden in the maps that will give you a consumable mushroom item. Just don't take too many okay?
- The magic baseball bat
Harris will now start with an attack power of 1. Which is pretty wimpy. So I've added a new area to the north that contains a baseball bat that will increase the attack power by 1 and will also unlock the shockwaves needed to defeat some enemies.
- Recon droid
The alien gunners are a bit too hard when starting with an attack power of 1. So I created these guys which are handy for leveling up with.
- Floating cube
This is a new enemy in the cliffs map. It can only be damaged by shockwaves and will revive any fallen alien gunners.
- UFO fight improved
Speaking of reviving, this is what the UFO can do now too. Which is a good thing because it needs level 2 shockwaves for it to go down.
Anyway, that's it for me. I'll do a post-mortem later, in a couple or days or so.
Controls: Arrow keys for movement, V for confirm, C for cancel, X to open the inventory.
