Made progress on my #Playdate project! Went from 16x16 to 32x32 pixel tiles, added scrolling, and basic Tiled support. So far, extremely fun to tinker with this!
That awkward moment when you notice the #playdate SDK already handles tilemaps and your implementation is redundant...
Just read this whole talk by Meghna Jayanth and it was extremely interesting. If you are designing a game, or even just thinking about entering the game industry, it is a great entry point to make you examine how your work is going to fit in the greater cultural context.
