First of all, happy new year everybody!

A good way to begin the new year for this game project is to update the plan for the future. This also gives you a change to affect the direction where this game is going.

Fall to most certain death

Reading through my long to-do list I came to the conclusion that I'm never going to be able do all that stuff. So what I need to do is to prioritize. I already dropped some items to the end of the list, which in practice means that they are very unlikely to ever get implemented. I will need your help with rest of the items on the list.

I grouped the items on the list to a few improvement categories and created a poll where you can vote for improvements that you think should be high on the to-do list.

Go here to vote!

Oh, and by the way, The Platform Shooter now has a page on Facebook too.

I like to controll the Game with Mouse & Keys. The GFX is really smooth and looks good.
I missed some Shadows, a healthbar or something like that, a different look of the enemys, a little bit faster shooting. you have so many options with this game, i become crazy when i think about all the things you can do.
I'm excited about what is coming. and sry about my english, i hope you undestand me ;)

Sorry for the _really_ late answer, I didn't notice your comment here..

There is already mouse control option, it is just not enabled by default. You can enable it from menu in ->Settings->System Settings->Controller.

As for the basic character shadows, better "HUD" and more varying enemy looks, they are all on my task list.
