I am announcing that I will make another version of Source-Seekers once I have all of the game information. I plan for it to also be cross-compatible with the 84+ and +C (not sure about the regular 83, though). I already have the text engine done.

There is also a download for my test program. It displays "THE QUICK BROWN FOX, JUMPED OVER THE LAZY DOG." And it should also work on the +C.

When I know everything that's going into the game, I'll get to levels and stuff.
So are you working as a team with 123outerme for your version or are you just making your own project?
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

We're working on a team, but he's also making his own version, to both test out his copying skills (without source code) and to get inspiration for optimization, etcetera.

^^ That
Plus, I thought the levels would be better as lists if a level editor were ever made. That's what I use: Lists with 14-digit numbers.

So far, I have level 1 functioning. My level interpreter supports the player spawn point, and the collectible spawn point, and even has an optional argument for a background of = signs (for the bridge level later). I'm now working on items and enemies.

Did you know that "Ammonia Gas" rearranged is "As Omnimaga"?

Ah ok I see. If it's a separate project I guess it might be better if you started your own topic, though, to avoid hijacking 123outerme's. :P

I won't announce anything more to you until I'm finished. :P

This game's production is going very smoothly, with little lasting bugs!
Anyway, added some stuff to the Developer Blog section on the original post. If you're interested in the game, you should check that out.

I noticed the download link on the first page. I'll try it out when I have some time. :)

Some progress has been made (sorry I was out so long, I had to go to a wedding on my birthday in North Carolina).

We're getting very close to the end of this project, all is left is the final level! No spoilers for that, though, so you're going to have to engross yourself in the Dev Blog!
By the way, just in case you didn't see, there's also a copy of the Dev Blog in the main spoiler, and in the respective sub-spoiler.

I added a new poll asking about your preferred timing of release. If you choose "Now", you'll have to wait less but the experience won't be as full if you don't have the final fight availible right away.
If you choose "When You're Done", you'll have to wait longer but the experience will be refreshing and will be better than releasing it immediately.

I would say wait a bit, although when it's finished you could release a beta if you worry about possible bugs or need extra suggestions. But at least then we would play a more complete game.

Remember: this is your project. Do what you think is best. If you want to release it now, then do it. Nobody's stopping you from releasing it now and later, or never. You're not selling something. You're practicing a hobby. Have fun. If you are, then cool. If the polls and extra stuff starts to make it less fun, though, stop. Reconsider what you're doing and why.

Anyhow, this is looking nice. Great work!

Thanks bb010g! The reason that I put up the polls, and am asking about the release date, is that my ideas for the final boss might take a while to implement and/or fix, so I was fishing for the gauge of everyone's impatience :P

If I may say so, this is the most awesome first major project I've seen in a while. Even though some people still have doubts about the CSE and Basic in general, I think that this project proves a lot of that wrong. When you upload the final version to ticalc, be sure to ask for a feature. I think this will deserve one. :D
