Well done - keep up the good work...

Cool stuff. I'm loving the animations and the dust clouds when walking. Is this 2D only? Looks good.

How did you handle the tiles(cubes/planes)sizes?
Because a cube have no pixelsize.

Sorry for you and your family's loss Cliff. That couldn't have been easy in any way for anyone.

On the game dev side... this does look very interesting! Is your FPS project done for good?

Thanks guys it where a rough time but i hope it will be better now again….

How did you handle the tiles(cubes/planes)sizes?
It where more or less a trial by error where i in the begining used correctly sized sprites to compare with..
This is more or less because i play around with the camera fov to get the right illusion...
I havent decided wath iam going to do with this Project so far ?
I have a time shortage for Projects and my apps dont generate that much Money....
Iam thinking about releasing it all as a downloadable source ?
I get tired to fast with my Projects

gar i dont know wath to do with pixelstein so far ?
Its alot of work but people dont seam to like it as the downloads are minimal?
So iam considering if its Worth it right now?
Maybe keep it on hold and revisit it later on...


Iam currently also working on a app for the local gym that i hope will generate something later on?

Iam trying to find wath apps that are Worth it in the end and still fun to do...

That's awesome of you to release the source. Have you considered setting up a Patreon account? Perhaps you could change focus from developing full games for mobile to developing source projects for developers. Maybe there are a few dozen people willing to contribute $5 or so per month for such a thing. I don't know... just a thought. Hate to see a great developer putting forth so much effort and time and getting 1 penny per day from mobile.

Well I agree with that part about community and do the same with the sharing. BUT I also know there are people using things like Patreon to fund them making games, dev tools, dev tutorials, etc. I certainly don't see anything wrong with people doing it.

Anyway I understand was just a thought.
