How long has this Project been going?
I started working in this tool last year, at the end of November. Most of the time I was developing the algorithms, and now for the FFS jam, I created a Demo to test the algorithm functionality in the browser.

Really enjoyed the degree of customization allowed and the algorithms being named. Maybe someday I try something like this myself =)

Nice job!

Thanks! I've learned a lot creating these algorithms, it's a really good way to get used to a language.

It's an interesting tool and it was fun to watch the different algorithms for maze generation.

Thank you!

Nice start. You can use it in many ways but I'd suggest starting with a simple maze that has an exit in a random direction and fog-of-war (meaning it gets darker every square away from the player) to keep the player guessing.
If you want to make it 3D you can simply use this as the base/map and turn those black areas into blocks (higher than the player can see over).

Thanks!

The fog-of-war idea is definitely a good one.  In the future I might consider adding a Play Mode with that feature.

I really like this tool! Watching the algorithms at work is really satisfying!

I know that it would be a lot of work but it would be great if you would make a 3D "Play Mode" to try the mazes out

Thank you!

I was actually thinking about making a "Play Mode" where you would be able to control a player character ( a ball or something) and try to find the way out of the maze, but it wouldn't be in 3D as I have no idea on how to accomplish that haha.

But I appreciate the feedback!
