Milestone 1 Achieved!!!
Hey! I got the little dude moving around under keyboard control.
Not bad for 3 days work, considering I'm writing a game engine in addition to the game itself.
I fixed the way that a scene is described in a spreadsheet that is totally wicked. The cell where the girls are at contains the following.
[StoneBlock(), RampWest(), RoboCatGirl(), RoboCatGirl()]
Each cell represents a stack. By being able to dynamically evaluate this in Python not only was I able to get rid of the dictionary approach I was using, It opens up some interesting possibilities!
Most exciting of those is to write procedural block generators.
Oh yeah! I'm getting pumped up now baby!
I give more credit to the guy behind Python than my own genius. Guido van Rossum. Any relation there to R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots)? Just kidding. He's my new superhero!
