This will probably be the norm for a while, unless I find myself with an excess of time some night; there’ll probably just be some project updates for a few weeks.
Progress on finishing the first level is going good, all of the main enemies are implemented, the level 1 boss is designed (but not yet coded), and I’m on my way towards getting the level done by the end of the month.
For the enemy designs, I looked to things like insects and aquatic creatures to get ideas for shapes and the like. Some screenshots!

And, a couple videos of the enemies in action:
The next few items of work are:
- Finish the implementation of the boss of level 1
- Lay out the level
- Add the scrolling background
