• Condorra – Game Update 1

    05/29/2016

    Hello and welcome to the first update of Condorra, a game inspired by old school 2D RPGs like Final Fantasy. We will have these updates every other week showing the changes made.

    This week I have been mostly working on improving the in-game editor:

    • You can now rename objects
    • Top- and Bottom Layers can now be edited *
    • Ability to change the look of an object from the editor
    • Added Scripting Function Log() will output to the game-console
    • Added HTML Api so that you can edit/create DOM elements at runtime
      This allowed to add a textarea for scripting purposes (see screenshot).
    • Maps can now loaded via the LoadMap Button

    * Internally there are 4 Layers to represent the game world. How these work in detail will be the topic of a future article.

    1. Terrain Layer: the ground, like grass, sand and water
    2. Bottom Layers: below Hero and NPCs
    3. Top Layers: above Hero and NPCs
    4. Collision Layer: indicates whether a tile can be walked on or not
