Progress: Day 2
Today I did a lot of refactoring. First to take advantage of GMS 2's object inheritance system for code reuse. Then as a way to reduce the total number of resources so I can make more progress before buying a license. I also added player feedback in the form of sounds, visual cues, and animations. I was unable to work very much today as I needed lots of rest from the head injury. I won't be able to work a lot on it over the week as I have a demanding job. I hope I can finish off the first level next weekend. I think I will stick to a single level.
