If you are working on something using DOS-LIKE framework, feel free to post your work in progress screenshots here.

Here is a little something I started working on, project name "Cannon Man".
Really happy with the framework so far 馃憤


That looks awesome! Thanks for sharing :) And good initiative creating a showcase thread!

Thank you! Yeah, hopefully we can soon see some work from the others as well 馃檪

Cannon Man in action!


that鈥檚 looking like a proper game!

Yeah, I'm having lots of fun with it and hopefully I can make a full small game out of it :)


Working with dos-like framework on Cannon Man was so fun I made a full level demo :) 


wow, that looks great! Getting some major DOS platformer vibes from this 馃檪

Thanks Mattias, I'm definitely trying to get those vibes! :)

This is awesome!
Takes me right back to my Keen/Duke2D days.

Out of curiosity, how did you create the SFX - they're perfectly "PC speaker"-like!

Hey Paul, thanks a lot! It is indeed inspired by Keen & Crystal Caves / Secret Agent titles ;)

As for the SFX, I've used small bits from various dos games SFX and made my own out of them. I'm still trying to find out how to generate perfect PC-Speaker like sound effects from nothing - let me know if you find out.
