No longer working on Photon

News

In case you hadn't noticed, Photon isn't getting anywhere. I stopped working on this version about a year ago due to feedback saying it would probably be better on mobile platforms and that the graphics needed improvement. I gave a go at remaking it with Unity, but I haven't gotten very far because of schoolwork. Now I have come to realize that puzzle making isn't my forte, at all. At best they end up being tedious obstacle courses. So I have decided to cease putting my time into it, and have put the original code up on GitHub under the MIT licence. I honestly wouldn't recommend trying to dig through it though. When I started I was experimenting with different code styles and it ended up a little weird...

Anyway, I may return to this concept in the future, but only only if I find some way to compensate for my lack of puzzle making ability. In the meantime I am directing my attention to other projects and my schoolwork.

RT @UnrealAlexander: Not at a prescripted time either, but a quiet mechanic. Like your character is running on gravel so your chance increases, etc

RT @UnrealAlexander: You know what I have never seen in a game? A character randomly having to stop to get a rock out of their shoe.
