Just a quick update, since it's been three months since my last post:
The platformer is still progressing really well, but it's not quite ready for an announcement yet. I'm still working to have a really significant portion of the game complete before the announcement even takes place.
I recently decided to go all-in this time and do everything in the game myself, including music (something I hadn't created for a game since 2008 or 2009). Between the programming, art, music, design, and sound effects, there's quite a bit to do in a single project, but it's a fun challenge.
