Hey guys, just wanted to let you know the kit has just been updated to v1.3. Among other minor improvements, the kit has had it's animation system completely overhauled. Now swapping the default character with your own is a breeze, you'll find detailed instructions in the revamped documentation. Setup is now much simpler as well.

Hope you're all enjoying the kit,
Graham

The demo is great. Thanks for the hard work!
I'm thinking to get it before the end of next week.

- Is it possible to put the camera on a path so it can change angle( like pandemonium, nights, etc)
- Are you planing to add lifes and enemy interaction (bouncing on head, punching or shooting for example)?

Thanks!

clandestine: Thanks for the kind words. I am indeed planning to add lives, checkpoints and basic enemies hopefully in the next update. I'm also working to add mobile support right now.

As for the camera, I wasn't planning on doing anything like that with this kit. However I have been wanting to do something exactly like that for one of my projects, if I get it working someday I'll add it to the kit. A camera on rails would be a great addition.

Thats really great! As for the camera, don't worry, if you do it, it will be great, if not its ok anyway... BUT you cant deny the depth that these slight changes in perspective can add to the game.

Pandemonium is the first one i saw doing that back in 1996, then came Nights Into Dreams, Klonoa, Kirby 64, etc.
The interesting thing is that the industry seems to be in love with this old method again in recent games such as Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate, also the most hyped graphical update for the upcoming Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze for the WiiU, is precisely this! If you feel like giving it a shot, you can add it to the package, or you can sell it as an add-on, or as a completely separate product. I'll be very grateful in any case.

Thanks Graham!

Purchased as promised! I'll work with it as soon as i finish my current project! At the moment i'm planning to create a small educational platformer for 1~2~3 grade children. But as a hardcore gamer i'll focus more on the gameplay and graphics :D

Thank for the great work Graham!

I'll try my best to get it in before the Christmas holiday next week, but I can't guarantee it.

I appreciate your patience :)

Thanks clandestine, I just submitted these additions to the asset store. You can try out the new features near the end of the webplayer Demo found in the first post.

Have a great holiday!
