Hey there .. a bunch of my beta testers really wanted the map editor to be part of the game, so .. well .. I went ahead and just got it done. So Dynamite Jack will launch on May 10th with the Map Editor! I created a tutorial video that both demos the editor and turns you into a Master-Of-Maps in about 3 minutes. Check it out.
This was pretty much a last minute decision, and a bit of a hair raising experience, as the first build I created and sent to the beta testers that included the editor actually broke some of the game levels. Fortunately, the fix was pretty easy and I got that under control. It’s always a bit risky adding new features this late in the development cycle, but I felt that it would really add a lot of value to the game for people who enjoy creating levels.
It also includes a whole community section where levels will be shared, so people who just enjoy playing will get way more than just the 28 included levels
Disclaimer: this is coming to the desktop version of the game. I can’t guarantee that it will be included in the iPad version of Dynamite Jack. That will really depend on how well the editor interface transfers over. If it doesn’t work well, I will not include it.
