November 12, 1996: The swimming pool demo
Now that the main character is actually alien, we're having some difficulty on deciding how it will look. It's really difficult to think up some alien thingie that looks good while jumping, running and swimming(!).
The first few "swimming pool" test have resulted in an early demo to show the technical capabilities of the
scroll routine. I haven't decided yet if this demo should be on these
pages. Maybe if you'll swamp me with mail saying "please, I wanna see
that stupid demo", then I'll consider it. Anyway, the demo has three "players"
(keyboard, joystick 1, joystick 2) running around the playing area, which
is a swimming pool. (true...)
Things are slowly coming together....
