Horace Alfonse Montgomery and Monsterology will return next month, but on which world will our hero end up? That's up to you! Vote here to determine which game's world everyone's favorite gentleman pig will plunder in February.
Every month, we'll spotlight some comments from the readers regarding the previous month's issues. Here's what our readers have to say about last month's issue.
"That cover is awesome." -Mr. 8-Bit"I little slim on content, but there's a lot of good stuff here. Sidescrollers 101 is a great design feature that'll hopefully help bring some new kind of things out. I hope The HUD gets voted in, because I'd love to see that one. Beyond finishing off the bare basics of a sidescroller, there are countless types of games where a HUD can be useful, basically any genre can incorporate one. Most of the games I've made that weren't RPGs used one at some point, and Mazes of Persistence would've had one (that said "Press ESC to quit") at all times if I weren't slime at plotscripting.
Good news! We are now offering
specific questions for readers to respond to. That's
right, you don't need to come up with your own ideas at all! Answers
will be posted in next month's issue.
