It is wild what you can do with this scale!

Personally, I am most interested in using these in a movie or animation. I have a side idea of maybe using these at some point as terrain.
- Burnt out remains of a car (if players crash); I would suggest not making a model for every car. Something generic and multipurpose though if you add trucks or vans then maybe an additional wreckage for each major type.
- Road textures or segments (not entirely sure the best way to implement this).
- Caution Cones
It is nice to see the progress. Crazy to think that I could play a real tactical game on the gameboy!
You've got a lot of commitment. It is also cool to learn about the back behind the scenes :)
This seems like a pretty neat tool. I don't use game maker but this kinda makes me wish I did.
I think I remember that, or at least finding you when you had only 1 or 2 items. Keep at all the work!
Very nice looking. Has a rather unique feel to the coloration. It both looks familiar and different at the same time.
The backwall with lots of texture reminds me of tree bark, just an observation. I do feel like the textured wall runs the risk of conflicting visually with actors (player/foes/items) by creating a lot of visual noise.
If you use something more akin to the plainer backwall, then you could add occasional terrain backwall. Maybe a large crack, tunnel entrance, cave painting, under emphasized rock in the wall, etc. I think this could help a cave environment be more memorable and navigable.
It is easy to find things in retrospect that should have been added or left out. I think it can be easy as a developer to forget that new players don't know what you know. I remember the first tactics game I played. I didn't know I could select different party members by pressing R & L. I played the first five or so missions with only one character and a 'guest' character. Eventually, I felt I was missing something because I could find more people than I could deploy in the equipment menu.
I think I eventually searched the manual and found a tip on how to select different people. It was long enough ago I don't really remember how I found the answer to my problem, but I did have to look it up.
I guess that is the value of doing little projects like this. You can quickly learn developer lessons.
I assumed my money going up meant I got paid but a $ or something could have been nice, too.
I noticed that you start with 1 sword and materials to make 2 more so that is where the clicking starts from. The boxes you build are used only to make items. It turns out the background boxes are actually a key part of the interface and those show what your inventory actually is. You can also buy items from there as well.
I assume the master play is to buy the cheap items and build the more expensive ones.
