My blog now has over 9000 views(which is not a very big number, really)!
Anyway! I've made a lot of progress working on Maximus Cerebrum the last few days... the game isn't quite complete, of course, but it's getting steadily there.
Today I went ahead and revamped the game menu and in-game pause menu, so instead of seeing stuff like "N - New Game, L - Load Game, etc." there's an actual scrolling menu that looks all fancy and everything. No more hunting your keyboard for the right buttons!
Here's a screenshot for your viewing pleasure:
See those lines in the background? I copied the idea from Iji's in-game pause menu(sue me)! I think it looks pretty spiffy. It should look even spiffier when you see it in motion(and hopefully that won't be too long from now!).
I'll be releasing version .8 of Maximus Cerebrum to some testers within a few days or so. If you'd like to have a nibble at the game yourself, you can check the contact me page or send me a PM on the GMC.
Wondering what "---" on the menu is for? We shall see...
