Wherein I explain what I’ve been doing with the PCG in GML series lately and give some insight into the behind the scenes task of making PCG.
Spaceslingers is at the lowest price yet!
In this entry, we learn about perturbing rooms to generate a dungeon layout!
In this entry we explore the fascinating world of pathfinding, culminating in a fully featured A* pathfinding algorithm that takes tile costs into account!
In this entry, we learn how a little bit of recursion can make some big waves with the flood fill algorithm.
In this entry, we learn how to use Bresenham’s line algorithm to connect two points quickly and efficiently.
In this entry, we dive into the fascinating world of map generation using Cellular Automata.
In the second entry in the series, we learn about the data structures we will be using in future procedural generation techniques.
This is the first entry in a series about creating procedurally generated content using GMS 2.3.
The awesome Elizabeth Howell (@howellspace) recently wrote a review for Spaceslingers at space.com. Here’s a snippet: …In a way, “Spaceslingers” teaches us a subtle lesson about the real world of spaceflight. In the early 1960s, launching rockets was something we struggled to achieve, and even today the possibility of rocket failure makes us feel tense […]
