I was following the Discord chat and saw the progress you were making on this, very promising and very nice!

3D in a primarily 2D-focused game engine would be very nice, and I can think of applications like those 2D RPGs on the Playstation and Nintendo DS that had some 3D objects layered on top. I think that would be an excellent addition to Sphere, especially when you can 3D model them and just use them just like that.

Here's a couple of screenshots from the introduction of my OFF remake.  @DaVince has actually seen it in action; I'll hopefully post a demo soon.

Weird, I could've sworn I posted an updated screenshot of my Chip's Challenge clone...anyway, it fully loads and parses the binary .DAT file and accurately (mostly) draws levels to the screen. You can move around and it handles basic collision, but not much else (yet). I replaced the UI background and the time font with my own, and eventually I'll either replace the sprites and tiles with my own or use the sprites and tiles from Tile World to avoid copyright issues.

By the way, if you're in Windows 10 and want to record a game/window, press Win+Alt+R to start recording. Then when you're done, press Win+Alt+R again to finish recording. I just converted the video to webm with ffmpeg because I thought it would expand the video inline like it did with the GIF file I uploaded earlier.

Huh, I didn't know there was a shortcut key for that.  I usually just press Win+G and look for the Record button.  That's a good wisdom! :dog2:

I didn't even know about that until yesterday, when I was looking for an easier way to record games than with ffmpeg. I read about the game bar and saw the shortcut I mentioned in my post. I decided to try and see if it worked without opening the game bar first, and it did.

I haven't mentioned it until now since it's a very low priority project that may never even get finished, but I figured I may as well post a screenshot for interest. The blocks that comprise each letter are actually one image copied to multiple locations as determined by a per-character array of JS object literals with x/y coordinates.
