I was sort of taking a bit of a hiatus form Koopa 2. A number of factors really, I was spending too much time at work, it was too hot in my room (damn heat wave), but most of all I got really tired of working on the main game engine. I solved the heat problem by buying an air conditioner (thanks to problem 1 ironically), and I'm not working on the main game engine right now.
Good news: I'm working on it again.
Bad news: a gameplay demo won't be coming anytime soon.
Although I've been working on a bonus game engine, and I'd like to get some feedback on it when it's at a presentable stage. Which should be soon; it's less complicated than the main game but a bit more experimental. You'll know what I'm talking about when you play it.
I'll be needing some peppy bonus stage music, so if anyone knows of some on the audio portal give me a link. I could use some map music too. I'll just say I'd like the music to fit the theme of the first game, nothing too dark; although that seems impossible on the audio portal, everyone thinks they're super hardcore.
