Today I tweaked stuff, now I'm gonna be gone for a couple days, /endstreak.

Today was spent fixing multiple nasty bugs. One of them was that at one point of the game population suddenly went from 10 to 2 billion. I also dealt with some performance issues. One of the solutions was slowing the game quite a lot.

Next I'm planning to program AI to decide when to increase the population and how important it should be. :)

Yesterday's update can be found here.
In a case of any questions or suggestions, don't hesitate to contact me here or on twitter. ;)

Now the player gets an idea of where a slime will land once it's up in the air via a little flash on the ground.

Also, the slime makes the screen shake a bit when it lands. (The gif doesn't capture this too well; it happens consistantly in the game.

I've tried some optimizitaion today and I got additional 10 fps on a very resource intensive level. I'll be trying different things in the near future. Cya

Today was my first of a full week devoted to game dev. I worked on adding units, keyboard controlled pointer and selecting.

It went pretty well but I've got some difficult bits to solve tomorrow.

Placeholder art as always.
