I put the motor from a scanner on the slide from a printer. I got my
gears and mounted one on a motor to get the bed moving. It works great
pulling but it chatters when pushing so I'll be rethinking that. In the
latter part of this video, can see the z axis working with slide mounted
My extruder parts came and I mounted them on one of my motors. Please
ignore the fact the pictures are blurry or I will destroy you.
I was watching the ending scene where everyone is hanging out of the rooftop. As the camera pulled away from the actors I noticed something strange. The focal length of the camera was changed as the camera pulled away.
I decided to figure out where that was.
I knew it was in New York City somewhere because of the establishing shots. After watching the sweeping shots in and out of the picnic scene and looking for visual clues, I found it:

This is the starting focus of this game- making it fun to move the character around responsive and quick.
I'm borrowing elements from the Metroid series and Cave Story. I have yet to play even one Castlevania game so I don't know if there will be any of that in there.
Naturally a game like this must have a huge area to explore and this one will.
That's all for now.
Here is the main character (before and after DNA enhancement)
And here is one of the armor suits:
At last, actual coding has begun! I can't wait to see my little dude …
